Curve To Welcome Six Millionth Fan To PNG Field

CURVE, Pa. – The Altoona Curve will celebrate welcoming their 6,000,000th fan in team history during this week’s homestand, and they will commemorate the occasion with a special prize pack to one lucky fan in attendance at the game during which the milestone is surpassed.

The team is expecting to hit the milestone on Wednesday, July 5 or Thursday, July 6 during the series against the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, Double-A affiliate of the New York Mets.

“It’s surreal that this organization will welcome our six millionth fan to Peoples Natural Gas Field,” Curve general manager Derek Martin said. “The support of our fan base is truly what keeps this stadium fresh and exciting. We appreciate how loyal and dedicated our fans are.”

One lucky fan in attendance will win two round-trip tickets for a flight from Altoona/Blair County Airport (AAO) to Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), tickets to a Pirates game at PNC Park, two round-trip tickets for a flight from Altoona/Blair County Airport (AAO) to Baltimore/Washington Airport (BWI) and a one-night stay at the Marriott Fairfield Inn at Arundel Mills, all thanks to Southern Airways.

The winner will also take home gifts contributed from the Curve’s partners around the area, including Martin’s Foods, Subway, Al’s Tavern, Roaring Spring Water, Dairy Queen, City Beverage, Sheetz, Texas Roadhouse, Power House Subs and Furrer Beverage.

“The giveaway package for the lucky fan is unbelievable,” Martin said. “They will have a chance to experience a Pirates game at PNC Park and also get a taste of some of our great local partners. We thank all who contributed to this grand prize.”

The Curve’s all-time home attendance at PNG Field is currently 5,988,944 fans, just 11,056 shy of the six-million mark.

Wednesday’s game will also feature an appearance by BirdZerk, “America’s Ballpark Prankster,” who will bring his entertaining tricks and antics to PNG Field. Thursday’s game will include an appearance by the hilariously entertaining ZOOperstars.
