The Red Sox issued the following press release announcing the 2011 Red Sox Road Trip across New England:
As the Boston Red Sox prepare to launch the 2011 regular season general ticket on-sale on Saturday, January 29, the team will host the 2011 Red Sox Road Trip presented by Coca-Cola with stops in all six New England states from January 18 through January 24. The team will distribute vouchers redeemable for each respective 2011 regular season State Day game at Fenway Park, with a total of 6000 vouchers to be given out – 1000 in each state.
The 2011 Red Sox Road Trip presented by Coca-Cola will also feature the first-ever “Sing Your Way to Fenway” contest where fans of all ages will have the opportunity to audition to perform the National Anthem at Fenway Park. The first 100 fans at each stop will be guaranteed the opportunity to audition, with additional attendees to be viewed based on time constraints. The top two winners from each state will be invited to compete in the “Sing Your Way to Fenway” finals at Fenway Park, which is scheduled to be held at Fenway Park on February 9. The grand prize winner will be selected to perform the National Anthem at a 2011 regular season Red Sox game. For more information on the “Sing Your Way to Fenway” contest, please visit www.redsox.com/roadtrip.
Vouchers will be distributed on a first come, first served basis to fans that visit to the Road Trip stops. Coupon holders will have a chance to purchase tickets in advance of the general on-sale, which begins on Saturday, January 29, 2011.
All distributed vouchers, which will be valid for two 2011 regular season tickets for that state’s respective State Day game at Fenway Park, must be redeemed online at www.redsox.com during the presale window as specified on the voucher. Fans holding vouchers who do not have internet access or who require ADA accessible seating may also call 877-REDSOX9 during the presale window. Hearing impaired fans may call the Red Sox TTY line at (617) 226-6644.
In addition, one lucky fan from each state who visits a Red Sox Road Trip tour stop will be selected as a Grand Prize Winner for the Red Sox Road Trip Opening Weekend VIP Experience (includes pre-game VIP tour, the chance to watch batting practice on the field, and two tickets to an Opening Weekend game versus the New York Yankees). Fans can register at each tour stop and the winner will be randomly selected from all names. The winner will be notified via email.
The group making stops on the Red Sox Road Trip will include Wally the Green Monster, the 2004 and 2007 Red Sox World Series Trophies, a display of Red Sox memorabilia, and Fenway Ambassadors, along with a balloon artist and face painter. The Ambassadors will give away pocket schedules and other collectibles and souvenirs at each stop. Fans will also have the opportunity to sign up for Red Sox Nation, the official fan club of the Boston Red Sox.
