It’s Opening Day! That means T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) and the Seattle
Mariners are cutting ribbon on the newly minted T-Mobile Park this
afternoon at 1:00 pm PT. The Un-carrier is going all-in for the best
fans in MLB by offering an unmatched ballpark experience right in its
own backyard, starting with an unforgettable pre-game performance by
homegrown icon, Macklemore! Other fan perks include a brand new
cocktail, high-speed charging stations, awesome surprises and more –
plus, extras just for T-Mobile customers, like a dedicated fast track
entrance, an enhanced network experience and surprise giveaways.

“For us, this is about so much more than a new name – it’s about showing
our hometown love and giving all fans an unbeatable experience, every
time they come to T-Mobile Park,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile.
“And we can’t wait to kick off a new era of Mariners baseball with an
iconic lineup of Seattle favorites for fans today – Macklemore, Mike
McCready and Edgar Martinez! All the ‘M’s’ for the M’s!”

Yep, T-Mobile Park is hosting a bevy of local favorites to kick off the
season, starting with a pre-game performance by Macklemore in the
T-Mobile ‘Pen today at 3:30 pm PT! Get there early, as space is limited
to the first 2,000 fans. Then, stay tuned for Pearl Jam guitarist Mike
McCready who’ll perform the National Anthem, and Hall of Famer Edgar
Martinez throwing the first pitch to usher in an epic new season for
Mariners fans.

Of course, the Un-carrier perks will keep percolating well beyond
Opening Day! For one, the T-Mobile ‘Pen serves up some of the best views
in the park – so naturally, it opens up 2.5 hours before game time so
fans can scope out batting practice and pitcher warm-ups. And on select
game days, surprise giveaways and a DJ will crank energy in the T-Mobile
‘Pen to an all-time high. The T-Mobile ‘Pen is also home to the new
Magenta Mojo cocktail – a disruptively light and refreshing beverage
crafted by 2019 James Beard Award Semifinalist Anu Apte to celebrate a
new era of Mariners baseball. Available for $12.50 in the T-Mobile ‘Pen,
as well as Terrace Club Lounges and Lookout Landing, fans ready to turn
it up to 11 can even get the bubbly beverage with a souvenir take-home
light up magenta ice cube for $15.50!

Plus, to keep fans connected and fully charged, T-Mobile has installed
19 high-speed charging areas throughout the park, including lockers, so
there’s no need to stay tethered to the phone — just drop it off and
come back when ready.

T-Mobile thanks
customers every Tuesday
with freebies and deals…and now in
partnership with the Mariners, the Un-carrier is bringing it to the park
and extending it to ALL fans! During Tuesday home games this season:

  • Fans could get thanked with VIP seat upgrades, along with free food,
    beverages and M’s gear!
  • Together, T-Mobile and the Mariners are thanking non-profit
    organizations for their contributions to the Seattle community by
    bringing members to attend and highlighting their work during the game.
  • And, to double down on hometown love, T-Mobile will donate $10,000 to
    support their cause.

Un-carrier customers are especially in luck, because they’re scoring
their very own fast track entrance right into the T-Mobile ‘Pen – they
just need to show their T-Mobile phone and they’re in! And to ensure
they can keep those pics posting and those tweets tweeting, T-Mobile
permanently increased capacity in the park by THREE TIMES and boosted
its deployment of LTE-Advanced technologies. And you never know when the
Un-carrier might surprise its customers with a game-day giveaway, just
because…

Over the next 25 years, T-Mobile will bring innovative tech experiences
to the park, starting with the T-Mobile Tech Experience and Future of
Wireless Truck on Opening Day. Right inside the center field gates, fans
will have a chance to hit a ‘5G home run’ at a batting simulator and
learn how the next generation of wireless tech will improve gaming,
sports and more. Or they can head down the road to The Hot Corner (next
to Henry’s Tavern) to snag special augmented reality cards from T-Mobile
team members, free grub, prizes and more! It’s almost too good to be
true.
