Sun Season Ticket Holders First In WNBA To Get Personal ID Cards
May 26, 2009 - UNCASVILLE, Conn. (May 26, 2009) - Connecticut Sun season-ticket holders will be the first in the WNBA to enjoy the convenience of a Personal Identification Card (PID) that serves as their season ticket and their loyalty card.
"This is a project that has been in process since the end of last season," Sun General Manager Chris Sienko said. "We have created a unique new approach to accessing the game, as well as all of our subscription benefits. This program completely eliminates the need for a paper ticket, which makes it as environmentally friendly as it is fan friendly"
All 17 home games, plus both preseason games, have already been placed on the magnetic strip on the back of the card. Loyalty card discounts are also recorded on the magnetic strip, which will allow fans to swipe and enter through a Mohegan Sun Arena gate. Additionally, the card will provide fans with a variety of discounts at Mohegan Sun shops and restaurants and arena concessions.
Season ticket holders will even be able to send a ticket directly to the Sun membership card of a friend or family member as late as 10 minutes prior to tip-off of the game.
The Connecticut Sun tip off their seventh season at Mohegan Sun Arena on June 6th with a 4 p.m. game against the Washington Mystics. Season tickets, group and mini plans are on sale now and can be reserved by calling a Sun Ticket Representative at 1.877.SUN.TIXX (786-8499) or by visiting www.connecticutsun.com.
