So, you’re a soccer fan who loves coming to Menace games at Valley Stadium, and you’ve thought maybe this is the year you go all out and buy season tickets.
With all due respect, what are you waiting for? We hope you’ll take the plunge in 2011 and enjoy the great perks of being a season-ticket holder.
The May 14 season opener’s just around the corner, and it’s high time to jump on board and show your support for your favorite soccer team!
Here are just a few of the benefits of being a Menace season-ticket holder:
The brand-new Bennigan’s Hospitality Suite
Season-ticket holders receive free food and drink at three select games, thanks to Bennigan’s on Army Post Road. You’ll have access to the complimentary pre-game spread at the May 21, June 18 and July 8 home matches.
A parking pass allows you to park in Valley Stadium’s lower lot, right next to the entrance.
No waiting in line
Once you arrive at the stadium, you can head right to the gates with your season tickets in hand. No need to stop by the ticket silo.
A cool sheet of tickets
Just think about how great it will be when you get your hands on your very own, big sheet of tickets – one dated ticket you tear out for every home game (11 regular-season and exhibition matches in 2011), plus three bonus tickets.
Speaking of bonus tickets, you get three extra passes for any of the Menace’s home matches in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup or Premier Development League Playoffs. Last year, the Menace made its fifth appearance in the Open Cup; In 2009, the team played two home playoff matches in its 10th postseason run.
Earn popularity points
Can’t make it to every single game? Why not share your unused tickets with friends, family, or co-workers? You know they’ll appreciate it. Because of your generosity, they’ll probably like you even more than they already do.
The satisfaction of knowing you’re a season-ticket holder
What better way to show your support and be part of the team? You’ll soon become a foremost expert on the team, knowing the ins and outs, and the personalities of the players and coaches who lead the Menace to another successful season.
The best value
Thank you for your support. See you at Valley Stadium!
