Milwaukee Brewers Offer Amtrak Promotion

The Milwaukee Brewers, in an attempt to fight back against the Chicago Cubs fans and their Wrigley Field North signs and shirts, are offering a promotion to send Brewer fans to Wrigley Field in September via Amtrak in hopes of turning it into Miller Park South.

The first 100 fans to arrive at Miller Park on February 20th with a ticket in hand to the September 17th Brewers vs Cubs game at Wrigley Field will receive a free round-trip ticket to and from Chicago on the day of the game and a Wrigley Field South t-shirt.  The next 1,500 will receive just the shirt.

Now the exciting part of the promotion isn’t the Wrigley Field South aspect, there are simply too many Cubs fans that invade Miller Park every year (like the coauthor of this site) to make it seem like Brewer fans are legitimately fighting back.

The exciting part is that positive brand association Amtrak receives.  They currently advertise at Miller Park, but it’s not the kind of ad that makes you want to take any action at all.  This offer seems to be the exact opposite, promoting the passenger railroad as a great way to get to Chicago.  No one can doubt the strength of the Brewers’ brand at this point, and the association with Amtrak should help improve the image of the Hiawatha line between Chicago and Milwaukee.

Hopefully this is just the first of a yearly promotion.  Every little bit of positive recognition Amtrak can get, especially in areas that are potential future destinations (Madison, Green Bay), will help the railroad.

    Do they sell drinks on the Hiawatha, or is the ride to short?

    Not only do they sell beer on the train, but I’m pretty sure you can buy multiple kinds of beer.

    Luckily it’s an afternoon game – the last Amtrak to leave Chicago to Milwaukee is 8:00pm…which makes it difficult to take the train to Chicago for anything other than a day trip (i.e. nightlife, theater, concerts, etc).

    Matthew and Jeramey: I can confirm there are multiple varieties of beer 🙂

    One of the promising things about this promotion is that it’ll give a few more people a taste of the type of transit we’re lacking here. When you arrive at Union Station you can walk a few blocks to the Red line and take it right up to Wrigley Field, enjoy the game and then repeat the journey back. At no point do you need a car… until you get to Milwaukee.
