Alternative Marketing Promotions For Boston College Hockey, Hoops

via <a href=""></a>

If you follow Boston College winter sports, you know how sparse attendance is during the winter break. This is the time BC usually schedules such basketball powerhouses as Bryant, Sacred Heart, Rhode Island and cross town rival Harvard. If the game happens to be on television, the student section is usually no more than a dozen, and Conte usually has large sections completely empty. It's kind of embarrassing.

In order to try and combat this, BC Athletics and Marketing has gone with a proactive approach. As you can see above, there are a bunch of "special" deals to try and get Eagles' fans in the door. But here at BC Interruption we are always looking outside the box, and just because we love BC we have come up with some other promos they should consider during the winter break
