Philadelphia Eagles: “Fans are the stars” with pictures on season tickets and new advisory committee
Longtime Philadelphia Eagles season ticket holder Mark Esposito is pictured on the game ticket for the team’s October 17 home game against the Atlanta Falcons (right) with the words “I may have never seen a game, but I’ll never miss one.”
Esposito is blind, but attends each game.
Photos of such 10 die-hard season-ticketholders with inspirational stories are featured on Eagles 2010 home tickets, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.
“The stars that never change year in and year out are the fans,” said Tim McDermott, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of the Eagles. “They’re really the centerpiece of who the Eagles are. The fans are the ones that really own the team.”
The team also announced that it will distribute applications for fans to be selected for a 30-person advisory committee, which will meet once a month with members of the Eagles staff.
“It provides everyone a chance to hear directly from the fans on different items that may come up,” McDermott said.
