MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- It's been an extremely tough 2013 season for the Milwaukee Brewers. No one knows that better than the owners -- and because the fans have remained steadfast during the poor performances and the Ryan Braun scandal, the Brewers want to say, "thanks!"
Milwaukee Brewers Owner Mark Attanasio announced on Monday, July 29th that all fans attending any of the 12 Brewers home games in August will receive a $10 voucher for free concessions, merchandise and game tickets at Miller Park.
"It's an initiative we want to do to recognize, reward the fans for their loyalty in what has been, admittedly, a very trying and difficult 2013 season," says Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger.
Here are the details: Every ticketed fan coming through the turnstiles in August will receive a voucher good for $10 that can be used for food, beverage, merchandise and tickets sold at nearly every outlet (only excluding Friday’s Front Row, portable merchandise stands, Miller Park Suites, the Johnson Controls Stadium Club and All-Inclusive entertaining areas).
Vouchers may be combined (meaning that fans attending with friends and family members, or those attending multiple games, can combine the vouchers for larger purchases) and used at any remaining 2013 home game. The vouchers can also be used toward the purchase of game tickets this season.
With attendance expected to average over 30,000 per game in August, the Brewers expect to distribute more than $3.6 million worth of vouchers -- close to what Ryan Braun must give up during his suspension from Major League Baseball.
This is the first in a series of special fan appreciation initiatives that the Brewers will unveil during the final two months of the season under an umbrella program known as “Fans First.”
