Offering team experience auction items is a great way to leverage the assets of your club… assets that may otherwise go unused. And better yet, they don’t cost the club much money to provide.
Here are a few ideas for auction items:
- 10 ticket party package w/ additional experiences such as a locker room tour, player meet/greet, time with the mascot.
- Potential for: Additional ticket purchases, food/beverage, merchandise, parking revenue.
- The post-game press conference
- This is a once in a lifetime experience for almost everyone. This item also brings ‘instant gratification’ to fans as they can enjoy this experience directly after the game.
- VIP experience
- This one is easy. Premium parking, premium seating with additional club access (throw in a food/bev card if desired).
- Pre-game coin toss
- Talk about a once in a life time memory that your fans will talk about forever!
Additional ideas: Opportunity to participate in the halftime entertainment, coach for a day, lunch with your favorite player, GM for a day, fly away with the team.
The list of items can go on and on and on. Please share yours so that others too can gather ideas for their own auctions.
