98FM in partnership with Leinster Rugby are giving fans the chance to win a money-can’t-buy seat by the sideline. The luxury four-seater structure is the first in Ireland and aims to bring a unique experience to rugby fans and along with the chance to be a pitch side reporter.
Featuring heated racing-style leather seats, The 98FM Pitchsider is well equipped with speakers so fans can hear the running commentary throughout the game. Tablets are provided to fans to follow the game on Twitter and insert their own commentary and to add to the VIP experience, The 98FM Thunder Team will act as personal butlers and be on hand to fetch refreshments, hot-dogs, burgers etc.
Speaking at the launch, Kathryn Ryan, Marketing Manager for 98FM, says “Pitchsider is unlike anything you’ve seen before in a stadium to watch live sport. This is as close as any Leinster supporter can get to the pitch during a match. It’s definitely the very best seat in the house!”
Winners will be greeted by The 98FM Thunder team and handed their pitch side access passes for the match. They are then escorted to their V.I.P heated leather seats where they will find their match programmes, blankets, 98FM along with Leinster t-shirts and merchandise. Once seated The Thunders will ensure their comfort and experience is their top priority.
In order for 98FM listeners to win four V.I.P seats they must text ‘Pitchsider’ along with their details to 0877989898. The station will be running week long promos where a qualifier will be chosen each day live on air leading up to four winners being chosen to go to a game.
The 98FM Pitchsider will be present at the remaining Leinster home games at the RDS (season 2014/15)starting with Leinster Vs Newport Gwent Dragons this Sunday (15th February).
