Fans Can 'See Their Names in Lights'
Minneapolis/St. Paul – The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the next phase in the team's innovative fan development program. Beginning this afternoon, all fans who take advantage of the team's unique 10-game Flex Pack ticket offer will be able to "see their name in lights" on a new electronic billboard in downtown Minneapolis.
"Our fans are the centerpiece of everything we do, and this is our way of welcoming new fans to the pack and giving them an experience they won't find anywhere else," said Timberwolves President Chris Wright. "Just as our team continues to develop on the court, we're working to make our Fan Development Program one of the most aggressive in sports, and we'll continue pushing the envelope to find new and innovative ways to meet our fans' needs."
Every fan who purchases a new 10-game Flex Pack between now and Oct. 30 will have their name posted on a large, electronic billboard recently installed on Block E in downtown Minneapolis (corner of Hennepin Ave. and 7th St.). Each fan will also receive a photo of their name in lights, and a gallery of all new ticket buyers' photos will be available on the Timberwolves' Facebook page.
The Flex Pack, which first hit the market in time for last month's Minnesota State Fair, gives fans the unique opportunity to customize their own ticket package, with the flexibility to change seat location, number of tickets per game and price point based on the matchup. The 10-game Flex Pack, which starts at just $83, features an average savings of 20% off single-game pricing and is the only way to secure seats for the Miami game on April 1.

During the team's "Run With the Pack" campaign in March, the Wolves unveiled a new Fan Development Program designed to reward loyal fans with tremendous value and increased flexibility. To that end, the Wolves unveiled a new variable pricing plan for this season's home schedule, ensuring that fans will get the most value for their investment and empowering them to customize their fan experience based on their schedule and their pocketbook. The team has also given fans the opportunity to personalize their Wolves experience through an interactive broadcast last February, unique flexible ticket packages over the summer and an interactive media day. Since the Fan Development Program launched last spring, over 2,300 new fans have chosen to Run with the Pack as Timberwolves season ticket holders.
