FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Toronto, ON, March 12, 2013 – The Sports Poster Warehouse North America’s leading online retailer of sports posters and pennants, is inviting sports fans to show off their “fan walls”. Sports fans of all ages are invited to share photos of the rooms and walls where they display their prized sports posters, pennants, jerseys and other memorabilia from their favorite teams and athletes. The top photos will win spending sprees on SportsPosterWarehouse.com.
It might be a Chicago Bears bedroom, a Maple Leafs Man Cave, a games room celebrating LeBron James, or even a neighborhood pub wall devoted to Celtics fever. Whatever sports decor theme these avid fans choose, they can finally gain some recognition for their team pride and win gift cards of up to $200 in sport posters.
Contest entry is easy. Sports fans simply take a picture of their most prized fan wall — either at home, in their office, school classroom, even a bar or restaurant, and send it to SportsPosterWarehouse.com. Entrants can email their pics to firstname.lastname@example.org, tweet their entry to @sportsposters with the contest hashtag #ShareYourFanWall or post it on the company’s Facebook page. Parents are also welcome to submit pictures of kids and teens’ sports themed bedrooms, which are often covered with treasured sports posters and team swag. Any sport or athlete celebrated by fans is welcome, from NASCAR, to golf, to surfing, to rhythmic gymnastics.
Sports fans are already entering the ”Share Your Fan Wall” contest. Craig Van Guilder of St. Paul, MN, was among the first, showcasing the wall in his “mancave” basement room. An avid poster collector since his childhood, Van Guilder said his biggest problem is finding the sheer wall space to keep up with his collection.”Need a bigger house!” Van Guilder said of his poster pride. “I’ve always been a huge fan of baseball, football and hockey. Can’t go wrong with posters of some of the greats!” Van Guider’s wall features American football legend John Elway, baseball all-stars Cal Ripken and Jackie Robinson and hockey superstar Wayne Gretzky, to name a few.
