MOOSIC, PA (February 19, 2018) - As the madness of the men's college basketball tournament approaches, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders are marching towards the 2018 season and have announced a special ticket promotion. The RailRiders, Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, are giving fans the opportunity to pair a 5-Game Package with a college team from the men's tournament field for a chance to win as they win.
Each 5-Game Package purchased through March 10 will be paired with an NCAA men's tournament participant and incentives will be handed out based on their team's results. The 5-Game Package is $55 per field reserved seat and the package buyer will be paired with the tournament participants on Monday, March 12, after Selection Sunday via a random lottery pick system. Teams will be assigned on a per seat basis rather than being limited to one per account.
If your designated team advances, you will be given the following prizes based on performance:
- Advance to the round of 32 and your 5-Game Package becomes a 10-Game Package
- Advance to the Sweet 16 and your 5-Game Package becomes a Partial Season package
- Advance to the Elite 8 and your 5-Game Package becomes a Half Season Package.
- Advance to the Final 4 and your 5-Game Package becomes a Full Season Package.
One person will ride their team's success all the way to the title. If your randomly-assigned team wins the NCAA Championship, you will win a personalized RailRiders jersey, an autographed Goose Gossage team hat, a private meet and greet with a player of your choice at the Meet the RailRiders team event on April 4 and four tickets to Yankee Stadium during the 2018 Season.
The RailRiders open the 2018 season with a six-game homestand on April 6 against the Syracuse Chiefs and the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. To purchase tickets or for more information, please contact the RailRiders ticket sales department at 570-969-BALL.
