Penguins to honor their 25,000,000th fan Wednesday evening

New comes per a team press release…

The Penguins will honor their 25,000,000th fan during Wednesday’s game against St. Louis at CONSOL Energy Center. Game time is 7 p.m.

Counting regular season and playoff games since their inception in 1967, the Penguins have drawn 24,983,853 fans.

Through bar code technology, the Penguins and arena operator SMG will be able to track when the 25,000,000th fan enters the gates Wednesday night. The fan will be notified during the first period and honored during the second period.

The lucky 25,000,000th fan will win a road trip to a Penguins game as well as an autographed Sidney Crosby jersey.

All fans in attendance will receive coupons for a free cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee; free skate rental at Penguins Pond at SouthSide Works; and 25 percent off one purchase at the PensGear store at SouthSide Works.

The Penguins are expecting their 220th straight sellout crowd Wednesday. Capacity at CONSOL Energy Center is 18,387, and the Pens need just 16,147 to reach 25,000,000.

For the record, the Penguins have drawn 22,733,362 fans to regular season games and 2,250,491 fans to playoff games.

Cool idea.  Way to let the technology work for you.

I hope that not everybody tries to be the 16,147th fan through the door.  Methinks a lot of people are going to miss puck drop if that happens.  grin
