If you are a Capitals' season-ticket holder, you can now go to Heinz Field and infiltrate the Pittsburgh-focused crowd. Why? Thanks to Ted Leonsis, Caps' season-ticket holders will have the chance to buy tickets to the 2011 Winter Classic.â†µ
Leonsis announced the news on his blog just now.â†µ
I am excited to announce that ALL suite and club seat holders as well as ALL full and partial season-ticket accounts will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to the 2011 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. In the upcoming days plan holders will be receiving details in the mail pertaining to the Winter Classic and their season-ticket account.â†µ
Leonsis added that there will be a limited offer for all Caps fans who are non-season ticket holders. He's also hoping for a real "Rock The Red" effect for the game.â†µ
We're playing at Heinz Field, and I know they have a huge ketchup bottle that turns the scoreboard red whenever the Steelers enter the "red zone." I think it would be hospitable of us to bring our own version of "red" and show the NBC audience how to Rock the Red on New Year's Day.â†µ
Damn right we should.
