The Bakersfield Condors are averaging 4,996 fans per game this season, good by ECHL standards, but still minor league teams are always looking for ways to boost ticket sales.
Bakersfield has decided that capitalising on Charlie Sheen’s downfall is one surefire way to give itself an attendance boost. So, the Condors are hosting “Charlie Sheen Night” on Saturday, March 12th.
Some of the components of the promotion: fans who bring clean drug tests get free admission; if a fan can produce $2 million, he/she can buy the team; anyone that dresses up like Sheen gets a ticket for $2.50; buy one get one free “Tiger Blood” icees and snowcones; in honour of Sheen, the Condors won’t practice before the game; and finally, if the Condors can surpass one million Twitter followers faster than Sheen (obviously impossible), Charlie gets to rename the team.
The Condors are no strangers to promotional gimmicks — last season they held a Michael Jackson night.
