Express looking to break single-game attendance record Tuesday

Eau Claire, Wis. – The Eau Claire Express are celebrating their 10th Anniversary season with a variety of new promotions for the season. An unexpected addition to that lineup is the potential to break a franchise record that was set back in 2007. With high presale of tickets and sponsorship support from the Chippewa Valley Chiropractic Alliance, the Express are set up to have a chance to break the single-game attendance record of 5,659 on Tuesday, June 17.

“We’re fortunate to have the support of CVCA to give us the opportunity to break this record,” stated Express General Manager Andy Neborak. “This is something we really hope fans are excited to be a part of and that they come out to Carson Park to be a part of Express history.”

The current record was set on July 4, 2007 in a game versus the La Crosse Loggers. In fact, the top four single-game attendances in franchise history have taken place on July 4 games. The promotion for tomorrow’s potentially record-breaking game is a FREE ticket, compliments of the Chippewa Valley Chiropractic Alliance, to the first 200 people that bring a non-perishable food donation or wish-list donation for the Bolton Refuge House. All fans making a minimum $10 donation to the Bolton Refuge house will receive a free t-shirt from CVCA. In addition, a kids bike raffle will take place at the game and be awarded late in the game. Gates open at 5:30 and the first pitch is scheduled for 6:35 PM!

This is certainly a night that will go down in Express history. To be a part of it, you can purchase tickets in advance by calling 715-839-7788 or by ordering online at www.eauclaireexpress.com. Fans should be aware that General Admission seating is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. All tickets can be upgraded to reserved seats or fan deck and standing room only areas will be available. Upgrades can be done at either the Express main office from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM tomorrow or the Carson Park box office beginning at 5:30 PM. Come out and be a part of Express history!
