Ads Set 2012-13 Promo Schedule
Milwaukee, WI—The Milwaukee Admirals set their 2012-13 promotional schedule today which features concerts, presidential bobbleheads, mustaches, skating gnomes, and many other giveaways and entertainment which have been the hallmarks of the team’s game presentation.
Highlighting this year’s promotional schedule is Wispolitics.com Decision 2012 on November 2nd where the Admirals will conduct a straw poll via bobblehead in anticipation of the 2012 Presidential Election, which will be held just four days later. The Ads will have 2,500 bobbleheads of both President Obama and Governor Romney, courtesy of Robert Haack Diamonds, and each fan upon entering will choose which bobblehead they would like. The first candidate to run out will be declared the winner!
In addition to the Presidential Bobbleheads, the Admirals will have at least two other bobblehead giveaways this season, starting with a bobblehead of Admirals mascot Roscoe for the first 5,000 fans on January 12th, courtesy of US Bank. The team will also honor center Chris Mueller with his own bobblehead on February 15th, sponsored by Lee Jeans. Last season, Mueller became just the third Admiral since the team joined the AHL in 2001 to top the 30-goal plateau. In addition to these bobbleheads, the first 2,500 fans will take home a garden gnome of the skating Admirals Logo on March 1st, courtesy of US Bank.
The Admirals Concert Series, another backbone of the promo schedule, has yet to be finalized. FM106/Coors Light Country Music Night is slated for Friday, January 25th after the Ads game with Oklahoma City. However the artist has yet to be determined. The remaining dates and artists will be announced shortly. All of the shows in the Admirals Concert series are free to attend with a game ticket.
The Ads are also featuring a number of new promotional giveaways this year, including mustaches in honor of Movember, a men’s health initiative, for the first 1,500 fans on November 30th, sponsored by Lucky Tiger men’s grooming products, Roscoe/Milwaukee Brewers Ornaments (2,500) on December 14th, Children’s Hospital blankets (1,500 kids 14 & under) on January 6th, , Rocky Rococo goaltender water bottles (1,500 kids 14 & under) on February 10th, and Independence First Activity Book (1,500 kids 14 & under) on March 3rd.
