Imagine heading into Heinz Field for a Steelers game this fall, handing your ticket to the ticket taker, and him quickly taking a second look, because emblazoned on that ticket is your photo. Yes you, the dedicated, loyal, diehard fan on a Steelers game ticket that will be used by 65,000 plus fans for one of the 10 Steelers home games during the 2012 season.
It can happen. As a matter of fact it’s just three words and a 15 second video away from happening for you.
Earlier this month the Steelers launched a fun and exciting contest, “My Pittsburgh Steelers,” as a part of the team’s 80th season celebration and the Year of the Fan.
The contest, which is sponsored by PNC, is as simple as…well one, two, three words and hitting the record button on your video recorder or mobile device.
Here’s what you do. Get decked out in your favorite Steelers attire, or find a comfy spot in your Steelers room, or even take your Terrible Towel to a special place and turn on your video camera or mobile device to record. Then, in three words, share what “My Pittsburgh Steelers” is to you. Keep the video to just 15 seconds or less, and use just those three words to share what the Steelers mean to you.
Ten lucky Steelers fans will be selected as winners and each week one winner’s photo will be featured on a Steelers game ticket. But that’s not all. Of course you have to have the opportunity to use the game ticket you are featured on, so each winner will receive four (4) tickets to the game that they are on the ticket for, pre-game hospitality and field passes, participating in the Terrible Towel Twirl on the sidelines before kickoff, and a $100 Steelers Merchandise gift card.
To submit your video and enter the contest, you have four options.
