Area 55 Season 3 Auditions Announced
August 8, 2012
INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert has purchased 55 season tickets that he will give away to 55 loud and crazy fans for Season 3 of Area 55.
Area 55 made its debut during the 2010-11 Pacers season, and was comprised of loud, crazy, energetic, die-hard Pacers fans, Roy Hibbert fans, fans who dressed the part, fans who lead chants during the game and fans that weren’t afraid to be seen on the video board. Hibbert is bringing back the area for the 2012-13 Pacers season.
As a member of Area 55, fans will receive one season ticket in the section located in the Krieg DeVault Club Level, access to Hibbert’s private workouts, a postgame meet-and-greet with Hibbert, autograph sessions and other special events.
Fans will be selected by Hibbert himself through a special audition process starting today. Fans can audition for their spot in Area 55 by either going to Pacers.com/area55 and uploading a video (not to exceed thirty seconds) on why they "deserve a seat in Area 55" or by auditioning in person Saturday, August 18, from 4:00 – 6:30 p.m. at the Kroger at 3100 Meridian Parke Drive in Greenwood (google map). Online applications must be submitted by August 24.
Hibbert will select the top fans for a special final audition on August 29 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. A panel of judges, including Hibbert, will decide who are the 55 most energetic, loud and dedicated fans that will earn a spot in Area 55 for the 2012-13 season.
During the audition process, fans can connect with Roy by following him on Twitter at @Hoya2aPacer.
