Last month, some ambitious Wizards fans proposed the franchise adopt a red-white-and-blue t-shirt theme during the playoffs, creating three tiers of colorful sections with three different t-shirt giveaways.
Sure enough, the team announced on Monday that such is the Game 3 plan. Via a press release:
Newly designed game operations elements surrounding the “dcRising” tagline, including a 40×40 team-branded flag, will be introduced for the first round. Fans will also have the chance to participate in a new interactive opening video using updated Washington Wizards mobile app.
Washington will host Chicago for Game 3 on Friday, April 25, at 8 p.m. Every fan will receive a Wizards playoff shirt….Fans in the 100 level will receive red shirts, fans in the 200 and 300 level will receive white shirts and fans in the 400 level will receive blue shirts. In addition, WPGC personality Mr. Peter Parker will host his show live from Verizon Center from 4 p.m. until tip-off. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to take part in all of the pre-game activities.
The Sunday matinee giveaway will be rally towels — like the t-shirts, sponsored by Geico.
Here is one of the original images created the fans who petitioned the Wizards for three colors.
