On Wednesday, February 29, the San Antonio Talons professional football team will host a FanFest Open House and four quarter scrimmage against the San Jose SaberCats, leading up to the inaugural season and officially introducing San Antonio to fast-paced, high scoring arena football. The game will be played at the Alamodome and will begin at 7:00 p.m.; doors will open to the public at 5:30 p.m. Admission to the event is free to fans who redeem a ticket voucher on, or before, February 27. Vouchers can be acquired online at www.SanAntonioTalons.com/FanFest, through Ticketmaster.com, or in print at various sites throughout San Antonio.
The FanFest Scrimmage will be a city celebration where San Antonio football fans will learn about, and experience the action of AFL pro-football. During the evening, fans will watch a fast-paced, four quarter scrimmage, a performance by the Sky Dancers, and will be entertained by music, special prizes and giveaways. Fans will also have the opportunity to meet and mingle with their new pro-football home team. Throughout the evening, attendees will learn the rules of the AFL and during the scrimmage fans will get a run-down of AFL game-play. They will also have the chance to meet the 2012 Sky Dancers and other surprise celebrity guests, including Bill Bates of the Dallas Cowboys, a close friend of the Talons franchise.
"We are hosting this FanFest Scrimmage in appreciation of the welcoming reception we have received from San Antonio and all of our fans," says Talons' Owner and CEO Jason Lohe. "We look forward to bringing the experience of arena football as the city's new professional football home team, and we are also looking forward to having 30,000 San Antonians to share in the excitement and experience hard-hitting fast AFL Football before our season begins on March 10."
