For the third straight year, Golden Gopher Athletics will be offering fans exclusive "Black Friday" deals on www.MyGopherSports.com, beginning at 7 p.m. on Thanksgiving night (Thursday, Nov. 22).
Running all weekend, the 2012 iteration of the Gophers' Black Friday special is (by far) the most comprehensive and compelling to date. In addition to featuring up to 50% discounts on Golden Gopher men's hockey, men's basketball and women's basketball tickets (along with steep discounts on select Gopher merchandise and one-of-a-kind autographed items), here's a sneak peek at some of this year's noteworthy additions:
- Gopher Basketball "Golden Ticket":
Did you ever think you were the reason the Gophers won? Well, here is your chance to prove it! For one low price, we're offering fans a ticket to every remaining Gopher men's basketball game: That is, if the Gophers win when you are there! Here's how it works: We load your "Golden Ticket" for all 9 home B1G games on the Gophers' schedule (starting with Michigan State Dec. 31). If you come and the Gophers win, your pass is still valid. If you come and the Gophers lose, your pass is deactivated. Got it? Prove you're the Gophers' lucky charm!
- Men's Basketball Stay & Play Package:
Take a break from the monotony by spending a night on campus after a great Gopher victory. We've teamed up with the newly renovated and first-class hotel, The Commons, to offer you this great deal. Two lower level seats for a Gopher Men's Basketball game, 1 night stay in hotel, $50 restaurant gift card -- all for $300, a savings of over $100.
- Men's Hockey VIP Package:
Looking for an unforgettable experience for yourself or as a gift? If so, we've got a great option for you. This limited package (only 1 per game) includes four center ice tickets for a Men's Hockey game, four Club Room passes, and a parking pass. Give the gift of Gopher Hockey to someone you love! But you'd better be quick -- there are only four (4) of these one-of-a-kind packages available -- for the Notre Dame (Jan. 8), Alaska-Anchorage (Jan. 11-12) and Minnesota State-Mankato (Jan. 25) games.
Get a sneak peek at the 2012 Black Friday sale by visiting www.MyGopherSports.com and be sure to log in at 7 p.m. Thanksgiving night to get these great deals before they're gone!
