Major League Baseball’s Opening Day is approaching. Unfortunately thanks to COVID-19 those ballpark seats will be empty this season. But now Miller Lite is bringing those seats to lucky fans.
Here’s the deal…
July 23, Major league Baseball will be kicking off this year’s shortened 60-game regular season…
The defending World Series champion Washington Nationals will host the New York Yankees in the first game of the 2020 MLB season on July 23, followed by the San Francisco Giants traveling to play the rival Los Angeles Dodgers.
Unfortunately, thanks to the coronavirus both those games will be played in empty stadiums…
But while fans won’t be able to attend the MLB games this year, Miller Lite is partnering with six clubs to give away a pair of stadium seats to deserving fans who root for the Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Milwaukee Brewers, Philadelphia Phillies and Pittsburgh Pirates.
Miller Lite’s new promotion will be bringing the ballpark (or part of it, at least) to fans’ homes this season. And if you’re one of the lucky winners, two seats, identical to those in the teams’ home ballparks, will be delivered to their homes.
Beginning on July 20 and extending through July 27, baseball superfans can potentially win a pair of stadium seats, along with a supply of Miller Lite, a custom cooler and a bundle of team swag. The winners, one in each market, will be announced August 5 so until then you may have stay on the couch.
“We’ve all missed baseball this season, rooting for our favorite teams and making memories with our friends and loved ones,” Carol Krienik, associate marketing manager for Miller Lite explained to Beer & Beyond. “Miller Time is all about making connections and celebrating meaningful relationships, and we can’t wait to celebrate fans who deserve a little recognition.”
To participate in Miller Lite’s The Best Seat in the House promotion, MLB fans need to send an email to [email protected], and explain in 150 words or fewer why the person they’re nominating deserves the best seat in the house, as well as a photo of the nominee.
And you’ll have to be at least 21, Molson Coors will be double-checking those IDs.
“We want to hear about the fan who has never missed a game before this season, or the health care worker who deserves some joy, or the fan whose team has made a meaningful mark on his or her life in some way,” added Krienik.
“The Best Seat in the House promotion is a good representation of how our new normal can still be just as special and just as meaningful, even without going to baseball games.”
