The National Premier Soccer League's Fort Worth Vaqueros announced that they will host "Luis Suarez Fangs Night" on June 29.
What does "Luis Suarez Fangs Night" include? For starters, the first 50 fans to show up to Vaqueros owner Michael Hitchcock’s barbecue—which includes free “Chiellini” dogs and Jarritos soft drinks—in the LaGrave Field parking lot on Sunday will receive a free pair of fangs. Those fangs will essentially serve as a ticket to the team's game, as those fans will get in for free.
Even if some fans aren't one of the first 50 fans to show up to the barbecue, they will be able to get into the game for relatively cheap. In order to get in for free, all they have to do is find a pair of fangs and bring them to the game.
Vaqueros director of business operations Tobias Xavier Lopez explained why the team is holding the promotion:
The World Cup can be filled with magical moments of skill but the pageantry of the tournament also includes those ridiculous moments of absurdity that add another layer of color. Luis Suarez just joined Maradonna’s ‘Hand of God’ goal or Zidane’s headbutt in the lore of wonderfully outrageous moments.
Fort Worth is looking to get fans to pack the stadium for a crucial game as they look to make the playoffs. Luckily, the Vaqueros are able to offer a bizarre promotion like this to try to encourage fans to come out and show their support.
