All Aboard the Fan Express!
The FOX Sports Arizona Coyotes Fan Express bus made its first trip for the 2015-2016 Coyotes season and carried 50 fans to watch the Coyotes host the New York Rangers on a very big night for hockey.
Fans entered the contest by filling out a submission slip and dropping it into the registration box at the COX Solutions Store in Chandler, Arizona and 25 lucky fans received the call that they had won a spot on the FOX Sports Fan Express and two tickets to the Coyotes vs. Rangers game on November 7, 2015 for them and one guest.
The bus picked up the winners and their guests from the same COX Solutions Store in Chandler at 5:30 pm where they entered and drove them to Gila River Arena in Glendale just in time to see the puck drop at 7:00 pm.
November 7, 2015 was not only a big night for these fans and FOX Sports Arizona, but also for the National Hockey League, as it was Hockey Fights Cancer Night.
Everyone from Jody Jackson to Shane Doan wore purple to raise money and awareness for hockey’s most important fight.
Although the Coyotes did not come away with a win, the best part of the night was getting to share this amazing experience with fans who may not have made it to the game otherwise. We even had the opportunity to give one small kid the experience of a lifetime as this was his first ever hockey game. Our FOX Sports team documented the trip on our Snapchat story which was posted to Facebook below.
Sounds like a fun experience, right? Well, get ready! The next Fan Express is coming! Fans can register to be the next winner on the FOX Sports Arizona Fan Express for the Dec. 12 game against the Carolina Hurricanes from at the Cox Solutions Store at Gateway Village in Glendale.
