Expanding Copa and Missing Teeth in San Antonio

72 Baseball Team and now the Chimuelos in Hockey…

Great news in MILB, the Copa de la Diversión is expanding next year to 72 teams.  This program was a raging success for minor league baseball expanding the audience and generating millions in new merchandise revenue.  And now a hockey team in San Antonio is following the lead with a great new promotional night.

Ben Hill and Jon Cudo talk more about it in the April 2018 Gameops.com Podcast.

This is crossing over into Hockey now as well with teams like the San Antonio Rampage adding a Spanish Heritage night to their calendar, complete with a name change and custom logo.  (see more)

What does “Chimuelos” mean? – A person who is missing teeth

Why Chimuelos for the name? – Hockey players customarily loose teeth because of the game so we’re quite literally the “Chimuelos de San Antonio”

The San Antonio Rampage tonight announced that the team will temporarily change its identity to Los Chimuelos de San Antonio in honor of the club’s first-ever Día de los Muertos game. Chimuelos players will hit the ice on Oct. 26 in specialty jerseys as the AT&T Center transforms into a Día de los Muertos celebration.

Doors Open: 6:30pm Puck Drops: 7:30pm.  Add a commemorative bobblehead to any ticket for only $10, while supplies last. Bobblehead packages will increase to $15 with the purchase of any ticket starting on Oct. 8 at noon CT.
