More In Game contests
While the Buffalo Sabres twitter is doing an awesome job with their Sabres coverage and offering rope line tickets between periods the
Buffalo Sabres need to go back to the old school way of doing stuff for games. Honestly, when you go to a hockey is there anything worse than a fan sitting in his seat with his head buried in his phone the whole game? Twitter is great for sharing opinions and getting stats, but there is nothing better than being at a live hockey game.
There are also a lot of young kids or parents at games who maybe don’t check their phones or twitter during the games and are missing out on fun contests.
Now I haven’t been to a game in Buffalo since last season and I could be wrong- please correct me if I am wrong- but I haven’t seen the Sabres do any cool trivia or contests during the game. When you go to a game in Toronto, there are always contests where they pick out 3 or 4 fans to participate in trivia where they have the opportunity to win a flat screen TV or an autographed jersey. Usually there are 2 or 3 contests a game and they get everyone involved.
Instead of giving all the rope line passes out on twitter, try looking for a couple crazy fans jumping around in the stands and giving them some tickets for being awesome fans. Or give some fans who are having a great time the opportunity to improve their seats behind or beside the bench?
There is nothing more fans like then leaving a sporting event with free stuff.
