The Washington Stealth announced today the launch of a new marketing campaign geared toward uniting the local lacrosse community and growing the sport throughout Washington State. The campaign, entitled “We Are Washington Lacrosse”, kicks off this month with a contest to feature local teams on the 2013 Stealth season tickets and will continue with initiatives through the 2013 season.
During the month of September, the Washington Stealth will be holding an online contest to select the photos that will appear on its 2013 season tickets. Fans will have the opportunity to vote online for their local lacrosse club with the top ten having their club represented by an action shot of one of its players.
The ticket photo contest will run throughout the month of September with voting closing on October 5 at 5pm. The ten winning clubs will be announced on October 10. Fans will submit an online form by clicking here, including their club affiliation, in order to vote. The contest is limited to one vote per email address.
The contest will also feature an individual prize and a club prize. One individual voter will be selected to win an autographed Stealth jersey. One lacrosse club that received at least one vote in the contest will be selected to have a pair of Stealth players attend a practice or clinic for the entire club.
“One of our missions at the Stealth is continuing the growth of lacrosse in the State of Washington,” said Stealth Vice President of Sales and Marketing Cory Howerton. “With the ‘We Are Washington Lacrosse’ initiatives, we are going to provide local youth, middle and high school lacrosse teams with opportunities to grow programs through exposure, fundraising and on-field clinics from our players. This is the first of a multi-dimensional program that will see us engage lacrosse at all levels throughout the year.”
The ten clubs that receive the most votes will be asked to submit an action shot of a player within their club that will be featured on one of the ten tickets on the 2013 season ticket stock.
In a continuing effort to help grow the sport of lacrosse in Washington, the Stealth also offers a number of fundraising opportunities for the lacrosse community. This includes a season ticket rebate program, in-game fundraisers such as Launch-A-Ball and a discounted ticket sales program.
The 2013 Washington Stealth season begins on January 5, when the Stealth faces the defending National Lacrosse League Champion Rochester Knighthawks at the Comcast Arena at Everett. Season tickets start at just $99 and are available now by calling 877-MY-75-TIX. For more information on the “We Are Washington Lacrosse” campaign, visit www.stealthlax.com.
