TicketCity Offers Tickets to College’s Ultimate Sporting Events in 2011 Bucket List Bracket Contest
College hoops bracket contest awards one fan the opportunity to attend the College World Series, BCS Championship and Final Four.
AUSTIN, Texas (March 13, 2011) - The countdown to the college hoops tournament season continues, and fans now have four days to enter TicketCity’s Bucket List Bracket Contest. Interested fans must register and submit their picks before the bracket closes on Thursday, March 17th at 12:30PM EDT.
“After the success of last year’s bracket contest, we’re excited to once again offer our clients and any sports fan the opportunity of a lifetime to attend the three biggest college sporting events of the year,” said Amy Carpenter, Vice President of Marketing for TicketCity.
The grand prize winner of this year’s Bucket List Bracket Contest will receive a gift card valid toward the purchase of tickets to the 2011 College World Series, the 2012 BCS Championship and the 2012 Final Four, the top three events on any true college sports fan’s bucket list. Five runner ups will also receive a $250 TicketCity gift card.
“The bracket challenge is not just a competition but serves as an extension of our services,” stated Carpenter. “Beyond the brackets, fans have the opportunity to purchase tickets to each of the games, including the championship.”
The bracket contest is based on correct predictions. Contestants fill in their brackets by selecting the winning team of each game and points will be awarded for correct predictions. Once the bracket closes, each contestant can view standings and compare how their bracket matches up against other brackets.
