The Florida Panthers Would Like You to Come Cheer on the Flyers… in Florida

PanthersAnd they spelled Philadelphia wrong


From the department of Desperate Marketing, comes this notice from the Florida Panthers.  They would like you to go down to Florida and cheer on the Flyers for a reduced price.

The Panthers, a franchise that has Roger Neilson in its "Den of Honor," sell advertising space on a tarp that is placed over the last six rows of their arena and average just over 14,000 fans a game. They would like to change that.

They have what appears to be a geo-targeted ad on their homepage, which offers Flyers fans a discount on tickets for games in February and March.  Just enter the code "bullies" (I see what they did there) and you receive discounted tickets.  


But it doesn't stop there.  The Flyers also sent out an email which details the same offer (tickets ranging from $20-$50, plus plane, hotel, rental car, food, and 600 other travel expenses).  This seems like a great time to remind you that Crossing Broad Tickets typically has seats available for around $25 to most Flyers home games (sun not included).

Of course, maybe the joke is on us, the Panthers just got some free advertising.  Well played, terrible franchise.

  1. Notice how the Panthers left off the last “a” in Philadelphia on the bottom of the first poster? If you are going to invite us down Florida at least be able to spell our city’s name correctly every time.

  2. How dare they try to sell tickets? I’m offended. By the way when’s the next “Buy crossingbroad tickets!” posts going up?

  3. Deezy- it’s not about them trying to sell tickets, it’s about a sports franchise being so miserable that they are forced to market 1,000 miles away to an opposing team’s fans. Imagine how pissed you would be if the Flyers sent an email to Bruins fans, offering them tickets for cheaper than what you paid?

    You can also combine different forms of cardiovascular exercises to

    if you had to park and walking into the restaurant, order in person.

    and making short stick moves and swift passes the artificial turf does not lose its quality
