October is the busiest month in sports – “Sportober” – with every major sports league in session
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 7, 2019 — Today StubHub, in partnership with legendary sports superstar quintet Dude Perfect, launches a “Sportober Challenge,” to reward fans for being fans in what is the busiest month in sports.
October – the busiest month in sports, with every major sports league in session – has been deemed “Sportober” by StubHub. That’s 31 magical days that fans can watch MLB, Football, MLS, NBA, and NHL. StubHub is celebrating this radically epic time of the year in partnership with Dude Perfect. In honor of this month, Dude Perfect has taken on the challenge of merging all major sports into one set of mash up trick shots including hole-in-one badmitten, football boomstick 3-pointers and more to kick off StubHub’s Sportober Challenge.
“There is so much to do in sports in October that it even has its own unique name – Sportober!,” said Coby Cotton from Dude Perfect. “With so much going on, we could not pinpoint just one thing to do this month so the all-sport trick shots is the best way to represent the month and bring out our incredible fandom for all sports. We can’t wait to see how fans step up to the challenge and hope to have an absolute baller grand prize winner join us for the pro football game in Dallas in November!”
Throughout October, StubHub will release weekly sports mashup challenges, inspiring fans to make the most of all the live sports events this month. Go to a soccer game and baseball game in one week? Wear your hockey gear while taking a pic on a baseball mound? The challenge can be anything and will be announced on StubHub’s Twitter handle, @StubHub.
“October may truly be the most intense time of year at StubHub when it comes to being a sports fan,” said Meg Ciarallo, Global Head of Brand for StubHub. “We could fill Yankee Stadium over 40 times with the number of tickets that fans use to go to sporting events this month alone, so we are particularly excited to have such devoted fans as Dude Perfect to celebrate this time and reward fans for simply being fans.”
In addition to daily prizes, one lucky grand-prize winner and Dude Perfect fan will get a chance to attend a pro football game in Dallas with the superstars and a runner up sports fan will have a chance to win $31 dollars a day for the next year (that’s over $10k!), in honor of the 31 gloriously perfect days of October sports events. Full contest terms and conditions can be found at https://sportoberchallenge.com/Rules.
