No brainer interactive element from the Charlotte Checkers this month …concourse holiday photos with their mascot “Santa” Chubby for both Dec 21 and 22 games.
This is such an easy interactive element for your mascot, giving them something fun and memorable to do and giving fans access for a photo they can share.
Don’t forget some good lighting, props and a backdrop so the photos look sharp and interesting. Some teams use a professional photographer or instant prints to make this even more turn-key and valuable for fans.
You can hear more about the Charlotte Checkers marketing and promotions on the Gameops.com Podcast with Paul Branecky.
Speaking of Santa and Mascots…have your read our interview with SANTA?!?!! We know him! And he was here talking about how being a good Santa provides some great lessons for being a great mascot.
The whole arena is having a blast, but it looks like Chubby is having the most fun with the @CheckersHockey Teddy Bear Toss! pic.twitter.com/6O5NT7jF1N
