Everyone's Talking About the Timberwolves; Join the Discussion
Everyone is talking about the Minnesota Timberwolves - from Kevin Love's game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer in Los Angeles to the improbable 18-point comeback win over Utah, the much-improved Rick Adelman-led Wolves have been tweeted about, "liked" and viewed more than ever this season. With the Wolves a trending topic on everyone's mind this year, it's no surprise that over 8,000 fans have committed to joining the pack as season ticket members and with today's launch of this year's "Everyone's Talking About the Timberwolves" season ticket membership campaign, why many more will join the discussion in the coming months.
On the heels of last year's highly successful "More" campaign, this year's "Everyone's Talking About the Wolves" campaign provides several options to see the team that has grabbed local and national attention for its exciting style and improved play this season - all designed to fit your budget and schedule. With the new campaign, fans will have the option of choosing from 17 different season membership options at various price points, all with the goal of providing more for season ticket members. The exclusive pre-sale window, which begins today and lasts through March 9, rewards both past and present Wolves season membership and partial package holders for leading the conversation with the select opportunity to purchase the best and most affordable seats at unmatched value. Additionally, current season ticket members who have already renewed were guaranteed the lowest priced seating.
"Our team's play on the court this season has created an insatiable desire for Timberwolves basketball in this market," said Timberwolves President Chris Wright. "Everyone is talking about Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love, Rick Adelman and the electricity inside of Target Center. On the heels of adding more than 2,000 season ticket members this summer, we've received an incredible response from them as nearly 90 percent of our more than 8,000 pack members have already guaranteed their seats for next year. As more and more fans join the discussion each day, we're excited to offer additional options, all at an exceptional value. The time is now for people to get on board and join the pack - before someone else does."
Following the exclusive pre-sale opportunity, the "early bird" phase kicks off this Friday, March 9 with the public's first opportunity to buy 2012-13 Wolves season memberships. In celebration, fans are encouraged to participate in a "Wolves White Out" that night when the Wolves take on Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers. The first 20,000 fans though the doors will receive a white Wolves T-shirt.
The Timberwolves will once again have monthly payment options for season ticket buyers, allowing fans to divide the cost of their tickets into 12 monthly installments. The Wolves payment plans were introduced three seasons ago and have become extremely popular with fans. A leader in the sports industry with regards to customer service, the Timberwolves continue to offer more for their season ticket members. Timberwolves season ticket members receive their own personal account representative and personal fan experience specialist who provide several opportunities throughout the season to interact with team management and personnel and fulfill the MVP Loyalty Benefits program.
The "Everyone's Talking about the Wolves" ticket membership campaign will focus on new season ticket sales, with the creative of the campaign highlighting the tweets, posts and mentions the Wolves have generated from users in the Twin Cities market. The campaign's ad buys include: television, traditional and over the air radio, digital outdoor, skyway signage, bus sides, transit stop posters and newspaper.
