MetLife is throwing a party in New York tomorrow to celebrate its naming rights on New Meadowlands/Jets Stadium, which is guess is now MetLife Stadium. Details are under the jump. Mark Sanchez, Rex Ryan, and Darrelle Revis will be there. Keep in mind this event is in Bryant Park in Manhattan, not the stadium.
MetLife is not a sponsor of GGN or SB Nation as far as I know. I do know they held some fan friendly events before home games last year so this might be worth a look.
This Friday, August 26, Jets and Giants players will rush Manhattan’s Bryant Park in an unprecedented event bringing both teams together to celebrate MetLife Stadium with fans of all ages. The event will be filled with surprises, game ticket giveaways and lots of fan interaction opportunities. The event begins at 1:00 p.m. EDT and will feature numerous Giants and Jets players, notably Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan with Mark Sanchez and Darrelle Revis, and Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin with Eli Manning and Justin Tuck. The event will be hosted by noted broadcast personality Mike Golic.
MetLife plans to expand upon its fan-focused sponsorship approach. The company provided hundreds of fans with one-of-a-kind opportunities in 2010, and as the stadium sponsor plans to do even more this year with unique experiences including tickets to big games, the opportunity to play on MetLife Stadium turf, face-to-face meetings with star players, field passes, trips to away games, signed memorabilia and much more. These events and prizes are only a small part of the big plans MetLife has for fans at the new MetLife Stadium.
