GRITTY COMES TO THE CROSS INSURANCE ARENA MONDAY

PORTLAND, ME – November 6, 2019 – Gritty, the mascot of the Philadelphia Flyers and world famous viral sensation, is coming to the Mariners vs. Reading Royals game next Monday, November 11th at the Cross Insurance Arena. Gritty has ties to both teams, with the Royals being the Flyers’ ECHL affiliate and the Mariners and Flyers sharing ownership under Comcast Spectacor. Gritty will participate in a variety of in-game events and fan engagement throughout the night.

From 5-6 PM, Gritty will conduct a meet and greet in the C.N. Brown Landing with fans who purchased a “Gritty package,” only 100 of which are available. Fans who purchased a Gritty package will also get a professional photo with the mascot. Beginning around 6:30 PM, Gritty will mingle with fans in the concourse, mainly at the photo booth in the promotions port.

Gritty will take the ice along with Beacon during pregame and drop the ceremonial puck. During the first period, he’ll help with the lucky row” and “seat upgrade” promotions. At the first intermission, Gritty will help “officiate” the Body Zorbs game, then return to the concourse for more photo opportunities. During the second period, Gritty will assist with T-shirt toss and roam the stands greeting fans. He will then, of course, assist with Toss-a-Tomato, Win Some Dough during the second intermission, before returning to the concourse one last time. In the third period, Gritty will help award the “awkward autograph item of the game.”

Gritty was introduced as the mascot of the Flyers prior to the 2018-19 season, quickly becoming a viral sensation in hockey world and beyond. With a unique look and personality, Gritty has appealed to fans of all ages, becoming by far the most widely-adored mascot in hockey. The NHL Players Association voted Gritty as the league’s best mascot in March of 2019.

Gritty has a massive following on social media, with more than 220,000 followers on Instagram and over 270,000 on Twitter. He’s appeared in many viral photos and videos since bursting onto the scene.
