Giants will put fans on their 2011 tickets

FootballTicketsAP AP

Game tickets often feature photos of players.  The Giants are taking a different approach this year, possibly due in part to the fact that the league and the players aren’t really getting along right now.

The team has announced that fans will appear on the game tickets.  They’ll be selected via a contest that determines the faces to be on the tickets based on a story and a photo that demonstrates their “Giants pride.”

The team will pick 20 finalists, and fans will have a chance to vote for their favorite story via Facebook.  The top 10 will appear on each of the 2011 home tickets.

“We want to recognize the greatness of Giants fans in a timeless and meaningful manner, and this program aims to achieve that mission,” Giants Senior VP and Chief Marketing Officer Mike Stevens said in a release.  “Ultimately, through our Facebook Page fans will democratically select other fans to be pictured on our 2011 tickets; a true first in our 86-year history.  The foundation of the Giants’ rich tradition is an incredibly loyal and strong fan base, and through the power of social media this program will enable us to celebrate Giants fans and their great stories.  This is going to be a lot of fun.”

The specific game for each winning fan will be determined by the Giants.  Which, given the lockout, could be the difference between appearing on tickets that are actually used — and on tickets that eventually are submitted for a refund.

You can enter the contest at Facebook.com/NewYorkGiants, starting today.

    Sounds like a great idea until you see what the average Giants fan looks like.

    Much as I hate to say it… this is kind of innovative. Pure cheese, but c’mon… it’s fun.

    stupid
    article

    Eagles already did this last year, so innovative I think not.

    A Philadelphia Owned team did this last year. At least come up with something a little more original. They could put like some NJ landmarks, NJ Buildings, or NJ swamps on there. At least put something that has to do with where they actually play at. You know, NEW JERSEY. No one wants to see snooki and the situation pump fisting on no tickets. I hope they don’t show up on the printed version of the ticket. WEAK!

    Like I always say, no article on PFT is complete till some Eagles dirtbag brays like a donkey.

    3 Superbowl trophies… your team, ZERO.

    Sounds like a way to sell more tickets. Only a New Yorker would want to see if he is on the ticvket!

    Patton Oswold seems like a shoe in for at least one ticket.

    Hey mad55555
    Don’t you mean the “Green Bay Owned Eagles”? I mean, how long has it been since the Eagles beat the Packers? Get used to it buddy, you are the one always trotting that tired and stupid line out about the “Philadelphia Owned Giants”. Kind of sucks, don’t it?

  11. loytomaki says: May 2, 2011 6:50 PM

    I like the idea, its fun for the fans.

    @GSUK-D
    What is more of an ownage? getting beat twice by a team that you barely see or hear or getting whipped 6 times in a row for 3 years straight by a division rival. Having a 21 point lead with 7 mins to go in the game, only to get shawshanked by the philadelphia eagles. Well at least the Philadelphia OWNED NJ giants will go down in history. remember D-Jack skipping along the goal line for 5 seconds with ZEROS on the clock. WOW, just wow. For your sake, I hope to god you are a 16 yr old kid, because if you are any older than that, posting comments on every other article on this NFL website, I can only imagine how pathetic the rest of your life must be. And that goes for the rest of you peanut gallery clodhoppers.

    Neither…

    Ownage is winning 7 out of 8 NFC Championship games and SB games combined. Win ONE SB and we might listen to you.

    Krow101,

Its funny I was at giants stadium for a game two years ago and some drunk piece of white trash exposed themself to me and my girlfriend if I hadn’t paid so much for the tickets id have whooped his a** dow the turnpike. Funny my team has beaten.your.team everytime we’ve played since 2008. Your mad our pr dept had this idea last year.

    why have a contest…..they should be personalized….the owner of each seat (season ticket holders) should put their own picture of their choice on their tickets. It cant be that hard to do

  16. rcali says: May 2, 2011 8:56 PM

    That’s right Giants, fans first! Now be sure to sell out your PSL’s.

  17. whatevnfl says: May 2, 2011 9:02 PM

    The Texans are doing the same thing. They announced it last month.

    You nailed it Mad55555, I love when they “pump fist.”

    NJ landmarks – like the top ten refineries? Best guesses for Jimmie Hoffa’s resting place?
