Selling Tickets in MLS

Time for a quick check around Major League soccer to see what types of promotions and ticket offers teams are pushing for the upcoming slate of games.  If we miss any, please drop us a line and let us know.

We’ll start in Colorado, where the Rapids are looking to capitalize on a visit from David Beckham and Father’s Day weekend to ensure a big crowd on Saturday night.  Here is a list of promotions for the night.  The Rapids have typically put on a big show for July 4th, and the team is already promoting the 2011 version of 4th Fest. The event includes concerts, kids’ activities and fireworks.

In Houston, the June 18 match is sponsored by H-E-B and includes a giveaway for the first 5000 fans.  Unfortunately, clicking through the website doesn’t provide great information about the nature of the giveaway. It may be an apron in Dynamo orange, but the image is tough to decipher.

The Revs play host to Chicago on Saturday night.  The Revs are coming off a Wednesday night home game that drew less than 6,700.  However, there do not appear to be an promotions running in Foxboro on Saturday.

The always aggressive Chivas USA marketing department will give away 10,000 foam fingers as part of their Saturday night match.  The promotion is courtesy of Bush’s Baked Beans.  The team is also offering a buy one get one promotion for the game.  The Father’s Day deal starts at $10.

As always, let us know of any other deals and promotions around the league.
