Whitecaps Host Playoff Watch Parties

PRESS RELEASE – It’s been an exciting season for Whitecaps fans, who have watched no less than 14 former Whitecaps contribute to the Detroit Tigers’ playoff run. Now it’s “go” time for the American League Central Division Champions, and the Whitecaps are opening the Pepsi Stadium Club doors for all fans to come together and cheer on the Tigers and their favorite former Whitecaps.

The Whitecaps will host an American League Division Series Watch Party next Friday, September 30, when the Tigers take on an American League opponent (TBD) in Game 1 of the 2011 postseason.

Parking and admission to the Pepsi Stadium Club are free. Doors open one hour before game time (which is still to be determined). Traditional baseball food including hot dogs, hamburgers and beer will be available for purchase; fans will also have the option of purchasing a $10 wristband that will give them unlimited food (hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and cookies) and Pepsi products from game start time through the fifth inning.

The Whitecaps plan to host watch parties for the entire Tigers postseason run, with the exception of dates when the PSC is booked for private functions.

The indoor banquet and party facility that overlooks Fifth Third Ballpark’s field from the right-center outfield wall has played host to numerous “watch parties” for high-profile sporting events since it opened five years ago. The facility has six high-definition televisions, including two 50-inch large screens, for viewing by a crowd of up to 250 fans. Tigers season openers and playoff games, the Daytona 500 and University of Michigan vs. Ohio State football are some of the events that have been viewed at the PSC.
