OMAHA, Neb. - Omaha and Peyton Manning have been connected in the news for the past three weeks, but besides general promotion for the city, Omaha sports fans have not had a reason to root for the Broncos in the Super Bowl. The Omaha Storm Chasers are attempting to add that rooting interest by offering 1,800 complimentary ticket vouchers to their July 6th game with Colorado Springs if the Broncos win the big game.
The 1,800 complimentary vouchers for Box Seat tickets, inspired by Peyton Manning's number of choice, will be made available on February 3 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Storm Front Team Store. Each fan will be able to claim up to 4 tickets, meaning a minimum of 450 fans can take advantage of this ticket giveaway.
The Colorado Springs Sky Sox are the Triple-A affiliate of the Denver based Colorado Rockies, and are a new division rival under the realigned Pacific Coast League. The July 6th matchup is a Sunday home game.
In addition to the 1,800 complimentary ticket voucher giveaway, the Omaha Storm Chasers were recently announced as one of the 16 Omaha organizations taking part in "#OmahaPeysBack", combining to donate $1,600 every time Peyton Manning calls out "Omaha" during the Super Bowl.
The Storm Chasers will offer the "Omaha! Omaha!" Plan, which includes a ticket to 9 Sunday Games for only $31 or 12 Sunday Games (including the Sunday Fireworks Games) for $55, up until midnight on Super Bowl Sunday. More than 125 "Omaha! Omaha!" Plans have already been sold at the time of this release.
