IceHogs Facebook and Twitter to offer free playoff tickets
Rockford, Ill. – With the Rockford IceHogs returning to the Forest City for their first home playoff game at the BMO Harris Bank Center in five years, the team wants to get an early jump on the festivities with “IceHogs Spirit Day” on Wednesday, April 29.
The IceHogs, along with BMO Harris Bank, are encouraging all fans to show off their IceHogs pride by wearing their favorite team gear all day on Wednesday. Fans are then asked to post photos of themselves, friends and colleagues showing their support to the IceHogs’ Facebook page, along with tweeting photos to @goIceHogs, for a chance to win free tickets. Two fans who submit photos, chosen at random, will receive a pair of free tickets to Wednesday’s Game 3 Western Conference Quarterfinal matchup with the Texas Stars. Be sure to use #HogsSpiritDay on all social media posts to be entered.
BMO Harris Bank will also be joining in on the fun. The bank’s employees at all Rockford area branches will be dressed in their favorite IceHogs garb and here to help you cheer on the team. Stop by to receive exclusive IceHogs foam fingers and merchandise discounts.
Next Home Game: Wednesday, April 29, Western Conference Quarterfinals - Game 3, vs. Texas Stars. Face-off is at 7 p.m. The IceHogs will play their first Calder Cup Playoff game in the Forest City since 2010 when the opening round series shifts to Rockford for Game 3.
