LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Live sporting events are a lot different in 2021. From shortened regular seasons and broadened playoffs, to empty arenas to allow for social distancing, most hockey fans will be cheering on their teams from the comfort of their living room couches. Mercury Insurance (NYSE: MCY) is set on bringing the in-arena experience home as much as possible this year, especially for fans who love to show-off their fandom at every game, so the company has created the LA Kings Superfan contest and Mercury Insurance Concert Series Intermission Shows.
"The pandemic has put fans in the penalty box, but we're not going to let that keep us from helping our longtime partners create a great fan experience," said Erik Thompson, Mercury's vice president of advertising and public relations. "For more than a decade we've been honored to share in the passion of chanting 'Go Kings Go' at a sold out STAPLES Center. So, we want to bring that same level of excitement in Southland homes.
"Mercury's show off your Kings 'superfan' side is how we break out of the penalty box by showing the world how passionate fans are about this team."
LA Kings Superfans
The LA Kings Superfan contest runs until March 15, 2021. LA Kings fans can enter now by uploading photos and videos at MercuryInsurance.com/Kings, or tagging social posts on Instagram or Twitter with #MercuryKingsSuperfan for a chance to win. Winners will be chosen each week for prizes, including LA Kings merchandise, a Zoom call with an LA Kings player or $670, the average amount customers save when they switch their auto insurance to Mercury.
All entries will be included in the judging for the Grand Prize – a Luxury Box at Home, including:
- A 55" Toshiba 4K Ultra HD FireTV Edition;
- Four silver team-signed jerseys;
- A $500 Blaze Pizza gift card; and
- A McDonald's SuperFan Game Day Meal, which includes favorites like Chicken McNuggets, Big Mac sandwiches, World Famous Fries, McFlurries for dessert, a $500 Arch card and McDonald's swag.
