The Delaware 87ers have gone out of this world for their latest promotion on Star Wars Night for this Friday's game against the Erie BayHawks at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark.
Not only will the first 1,500 fans get a Darth Vader poster but the team will wear these dope uniforms with an R2D2 motif.
From the release:
Sevens players will wear special R2-D2 jerseys that will be auctioned off to fans to benefit Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Twenty percent of tickets purchased using promo code NEMOURS here will also be donated to Nemours.
Fans can count on an out-of-this-world night! Upon entry, the first 1,500 people will receive a commemorative Darth Vader poster. Star Wars characters from local performance groups Garrison Carida (501st Legion) and Ghost Base (Rebel Legion) will fill the arena, and Jedi Master Yoda will serve as the public address announcer. All fans are encouraged to dress up as Star Wars characters and participate in a costume parade for the chance to win prizes.
Yoda serving as the PA announcer? In the words of the great Tom McGinnis, "Kidding me! Are you?!"
