Fans can purchase a 15” x 15” digital wall block to decorate and personalize their fanhood while helping support veteran players’ family housing
ALLEN, TX, September 26, 2021 – The Allen AMERICANS Professional Hockey Club has launched its #SeasonXIII AMERICANS LEGACY WALL campaign, a new opportunity for fans of the club to leave their mark in the locker room of the four4-time league champions throughout the 2021-22 campaign. 100% of the funds raised through this initiative will go towards covering additional costs of housing for veteran players and their families.
Head Coach & General Manager Steve Martinson shares that the AMERICANS LEGACY WALL project is critical to the team putting a solid, experienced team on the ice.
“When we go out and sign vets, we’re not just bringing the player in, but also their families” shares Martinson. “We can’t put the Vets in apartments with other guys, so projects like this help us raise needed funds to treat our players and their families like champions.”
For only $200, fans can share personalized memories from their AMERICANS journey and be featured among others in the Team Suite inside the Credit Union of Texas Event Center. This limited-time opportunity includes a chance for participating fans to visit the AMERICANS locker room and autograph their block with their unique message to the team. Legacy Wall Donors will also receive a special invite to an on-site mixer with the AMERICANS in December and will be included in several other invitation only events throughout the season.
To get started, CLICK HERE and begin the design process of a 15” by 15” block with personal photos, team logos, and messages. All blocks will be digitally replicated on the legacy wall, located directly behind the transition lockers of each AMERICANS’ player, along the hallway between the Team Lounge and the Main Locker Room.
“The AMERICANS Legacy Wall campaign presents a unique opportunity for fans and team alumni to leave their own legacy and share their personal AMERICANS stories for the players to read and appreciate on a daily basis during the 2021-22 season,” said team President and Governor Mike Waddell. “Our fans in Allen have been great in making our guys feel at home, even when they are away from home and this is a way to truly make an impact.”
Available space on the LEGACY WALL is limited, and orders will be taken through November 12.
