FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (Nov. 26, 2012)
PHILADELPHIA - The Army-Navy Game presented by USAA is only 16 days away and to help the countdown, a scavenger hunt will begin Monday in Philadelphia.
The Army-Navy Game will be held Dec. 8 at Lincoln Financial Field and an expanded Social Media presence around the game will allow fans more opportunities than ever to participate.
A 10-day scavenger hunt begins Monday in Philadelphia. Each day, clues will be tweeted to @Army_Navy_Game and posted on the official Facebook page, ArmyNavyFootballGame, to help fans find a gold 2010 Army-Navy USAA Game coin. Once fans find the clue, they need to submit a photo with the coin in the area it was found and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first person to send an e-mail with a photo of the coin in the area it was hidden will be that day’s winner. At the end of the 10 days, the correct choice from each day will then be placed in a random drawing. The selected winner will receive four tickets to the game, four pregame on-field passes and a parking pass.
A 30-day trivia contest is also underway with an overwhelming response to questions on the official Facebook page. Questions are posted on Facebook and each day, those who answer correctly are placed in a random drawing. At the end of the trivia contest, a victor of the 30 winners will be selected and receive four tickets to the game, four pregame on-field passes and a parking pass.
A weekly fan poll has also be launched armynavygame.com.
Fans can also participate in the popular spirit videos around the football game. Fans can send their spirit videos to email@example.com and they will be posted to youtube.com/ArmyNavyFootballGame. Each academy will pick three finalists. Those six videos will then be showcased on the Army-Navy Game Facebook page (ArmyNavyFootballGame). Fans will then vote on Facebook to choose the winner. The winning videos will receive two tickets to this year’s Army-Navy Game, two pregame on-field passes and a parking pass.
Fans are encouraged to send in their photos as well to be used in Facebook albums and Pinterest boards. Spirit photos, game action, memories of the game and other pertinent photos can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A memories section has been added to Tumblr and armynavygame.com allowing players, fans and coaches to share their memories of the rivalry. Please send your favorite Army-Navy Game memories to email@example.com.
A host of individuals associated with the game, including current and former players, will be available for on-line chats leading up to the game and on the day of the contest as well.
