Royals add Autograph Fast Pass opportunity to FanFest
The Royals have added an exciting opportunity for fans attending the 2011 Royals FanFest presented by Sprint and Teva Neuroscience – the Autograph Fast Pass. This new online auction item allows fans to skip to the start of their choice of autograph lines and guarantee autographs from select Royals players.
Each Autograph Fast Pass allows the holder to move to the front of any two autograph lines during one day (Friday or Saturday) of FanFest, set for January 21-22 at the Overland Park Convention Center in Overland Park, Kan. The Royals will sell 45 passes for each day (Friday and Saturday) with the starting bid at $75 per pass.
The Autograph Fast Pass auction is currently live at www.royals.com/fanfest. The auction will run through noon on Friday, January 14. All proceeds will benefit Royals Charities.
Please note that the pass will be limited to only the holder – no friends of family members can accompany the holder in the autograph line. Passes are not valid for admission to the event. No photographs with participants will be allowed during the autograph sessions, and fans will be limited to one item per participant. Complete package details and guidelines are available on the website.
In addition to appearances and autograph session featuring current, former and future Royals, fans can also celebrate the New Year in a big league way at Royals FanFest with new interactive games for all ages, main stage programs and more.
