\u2018FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT\u2019 CLOSES OUT SABRES\u2019 SEASON
The Buffalo Sabres will host its annual \u201CFan Appreciation Night\u201D on Sunday, April 13, during the team\u2019s final game of the 2013-14 regular season. \u201CFan Appreciation Night,\u201D which is presented by ADPRO Sports, kicks off with a pregame party outside of the arena and continues with an array of giveaways, contests and discounts throughout the team\u2019s regular-season finale against the Islanders, which begins at 5 p.m.

The Buffalo Sabres will host its annual “Fan Appreciation Night” on Sunday, April 13, during the team’s final game of the 2013-14 regular season. “Fan Appreciation Night,” which is presented by ADPRO Sports, kicks off with a pregame party outside of the arena and continues with an array of giveaways, contests and discounts throughout the team’s regular-season finale against the Islanders, which begins at 5 p.m.

The Sabres will host a Party on Alumni Plaza, presented by Tops Friendly Markets, from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in the plaza outside of First Niagara Center. The party will feature live music from Hotel Bravo, appearances by Sabretooth and select Sabres alumni, Sabres merchandise giveaways, a pom-pom handout, as well as face painting and activities for kids. Tops Friendly Markets and partners will also be on hand with food sampling kiosks.

Prior to the game, the team will pay tribute to longtime Sabres broadcaster Mike Robitaille, who, after more than three decades on the air, will retire from his duties on the Sabres broadcast team. Also in the pre-game ceremony, the Sabres, along with their Gold Ring Partners, will be presenting the annual team awards for MVP, Rookie of the Year, Unsung Hero and the 7th Man Award.

Two fan-favorite giveaways will also make their return to Fan Appreciation Night in 2014. Sabres players will again give away their game-worn jerseys to select season-ticket holders after the game in the “Jersey Off My Back” promotion. Another returning favorite is the post-game balloon drop, in which 2,000 balloons will be dropped from the arena’s rafters after the game’s final buzzer. Hundreds of the balloons will contain prize slips that can be redeemed that night.

Fans attending the game will also be treated to a team poster handout upon entrance, a 40%-off discount at the Sabres Store, as well as discounted concession prices including hot dogs ($2), pizza slices ($4) and souvenir sodas ($3).

Fan Appreciation Night Goes Digital
Another component returning to this year’s Fan Appreciation Night is a chance for fans watching the Sabres broadcast on MSG to win prizes throughout the game. To participate in this contest, fans can scan a QR code that will be displayed on their TV screen during both intermissions and after the game. In addition to scanning the QR code, fans can enter to win by accessing a website URL that will be displayed with the QR code. Prizes for the broadcast portion of Fan Appreciation Night include an autographed Sabres jersey, use of a suite for a 2014-15 Sabres game and a pair of season tickets for the 2014-15 Buffalo Sabres season. Winners will be announced by Brian Duff during the game broadcast and prior to the post-game show on MSG.
