SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 16, 2018) – Los Chimuelos de San Antonio will host their first-ever Día de los Muertos game in celebration of San Antonio’s rich Hispanic culture on Friday, Oct. 26. Puck drop against the San Jose Barracuda is set for 7:30 p.m. at the AT&T Center.
The San Antonio Rampage announced the one-game identity change last month during an identity reveal at La Gloria at The Pearl. The Rampage will become Los Chimuelos (pronounced chee-MWAY-lohs) – a man who is missing teeth –a playful nod to the nature of dental issues in hockey, while T-Bone will become El Bistec (Spanish for steak).
Chimuelos players will hit the ice in specialty jerseys as the AT&T Center transforms into a Día de los Muertos celebration. Festivities will start prior to puck drop and feature a mariachi band, folklorico dancers, face painters, and a photo opportunity with a Chimuelos step-and-repeat. The team will also have a Chimuelos-themed Día de los Muertos altar located by sections 115-116 where fans can bring photos in memory of their loved ones.
The first 2,500 fans in attendance at the game will go home with a Chimuelos poster. Día de los Muertos Night will also be a Bud Light Dollar Drink Night, and fans can purchase $1 domestic beers and sodas throughout the game. Tickets for the game are available at SARampage.com/Chimuelos. Fans can add an exclusive, commemorative Chimuelos bobblehead to any ticket for an additional $15, while supplies last.
Los Chimuelos de San Antonio will continue the festivities with a postgame Día de los Muertos Celebrationin the Bud Light Courtyard featuring $1 beer and $5 margaritas, outdoor games, music from DJ Quake, an appearance from El Bistec and specialty food.
Prior to the game on Oct. 26, fans can showcase their best Chimuelos-themed childhood photos with missing teeth on social media using the hashtag #chimuelos for a chance to be featured in-game. Limited-edition Chimuelos gear is available for purchase at SARampage.com/Chimuelos and at the Spurs Fan Shop at the AT&T Center.
Individual and season tickets are available and can be purchased by calling a Rampage representative at 210-444-5554 or online at SARampage.com. All Rampage games can be heard on Ticket 760 and SARampage.com. The 2018-19 season is presented by H-E-B and Wells Fargo.
