Last season, Colts fans got to witness something pretty spectacular in the season that many thought would be nothing. A team without it’s head coach for most of the time, losing one of the all-time greats at Quarterback and starting anew, the die hard fans stuck around to watch a two win team pull together for eleven wins and a playoff berth – and a bit of an extra perk.
The Colts announced via Twitter this afternoon that it’s fans would be featured on their Ticket Faces for the season – a pretty cool gesture – and a lifetime memory for certain fans.
It’s unknown whether there will be more than these ten lucky fans, but even if not, it’s a pretty cool way to show love to those that are loyal to their team no matter what.
The Miami Heat could never do something like this.
Update: I followed up this promotion with the club, and I received this in return:
We featured 10 different fans on our tickets this year, one for each of our home games. This effort is a part of our COLTSTRONG campaign (www.colts.com/coltstrong) and is also one of the ways we’re celebrating our 30th season here in Indianapolis. All of the fans you see listed on the COLTSTRONG website are be featured in our campaign in different ways – some on our season tickets, some on in-stadium signage, etc
