The Trib Total Media 'big screen' is back for the playoffs this year. Yes. We'll be down there!
Here's what you need to know:
- The big screen will set up in the arena parking lot at the corner of Centre Avenue and Mario Lemieux Place, across the street from Consol, where the Civic Arena used to be.
- EVERY first round game will be shown on the big screen.
- The gates to the big screen area will open 4 hours before home games and 2 hours for away games. This is different than previous years so please don't expect to show up and hang out all day before the game, you won't be allowed in the area. The area will be fenced in and security will be checking people on the way in as an extra security precaution.
- The big screen will be part of the FedEx Ground Fan Zone, featuring live entertainment (bands), special promotions, giveaways and playoff rally towels.
- DICK’S will have an interactive game in the area, plus their ‘VIP’ front row seats.
- Highmark is giving away tickets to the game, it will be a texting contest for the first few games of the first round so make sure you have a cell phone!
- For safety reasons, grills, glass and alcoholic beverages will not be permitted.
