August 18, 2011
MONTVALE, N.J. — Tennis and tweeting to get to Flushing begins next week for those seeking US Open tickets courtesy of Mercedes-Benz USA, Official Vehicle and the Presenting Sponsor of the US Open Men’s Singles Championship. The Company and its Tri-State Mercedes-Benz dealers are kicking off the Tweet Rally to the 2011 US Open and plan to giveaway 90 pairs of tickets during a two week period through the Twitter feed @MBUSA. One special giveaway location is going to include an opportunity to meet Roger Federer, who is personally handing over tickets.
From August 22 – September 1, 2011, via the @MBUSA Twitter handle, messages are being broadcast with clues to surprise locations and times where those following the Tennis Tweet Rally can go to land a pair of premium loge US Open tickets. Each location is marked by a special tennis themed 2012 ML 350 SUV, which serves as the ticket giveaway spot on a first come, first served basis.
Thirty Mercedes-Benz dealers in the Tri-State region are participating and approximately three or four locations per day are being revealed via the Twitter feed @MBUSA. One special giveaway location is going to include an opportunity to meet Roger Federer, who is personally handing over tickets.
