November 3, 2010 Golden State Warriors To Participate In Initial Launch Of Facebook Deals Fans Will Receive Exclusive Deals By Checking In At Warriors Home Games Beginning November 19
The Golden State Warriors will participate in the initial launch of Facebook Deals, the team announced following an event at Facebook’s corporate headquarters earlier this morning. Facebook Deals is a beta program that allows businesses large and small to offer Deals to people who check in using Facebook Places.
“We are thrilled to be the only NBA team and one of the first organizations to use Facebook Deals,” said Warriors' President Robert Rowell. “Our fan base and our team are actively engaged in social media, and with the launch of Deals we can now easily reward Warriors fans who share their experiences at our games with their friends.”
While Facebook Deals launches today and the ability to claim these deals will be rolled out to people across the country over the next few days, the Warriors first Deal is slated for Friday, November 19, when the team plays host to the New York Knicks at Oracle Arena. Fans checking in to Golden State Warriors Home Game that evening will receive an exclusive opportunity with one of the Warriors players after the game that night. There will be different Deals offered at each Warriors home game for the remainder of the 2010-11 season, including merchandise, tickets and exclusive opportunities.
