Thousands of New York Rangers fans will have a chance to prove they were present on Thursday, Oct. 27, when the first ever Rangers FanCam comes to Madison Square Garden as the Rangers take on the Toronto Maple Leafs for the 2011-12 season home opener.
What is the FanCam? This high definition image will capture Madison Square Garden in its entirety, and fans will be able to “step inside” the 360 degree gigapixel image and look around during this frozen moment of time. The resolution of 20 billion pixels is so high that fans will be able to zoom in to find themselves or their friends, “tag” themselves in the photo, and share via email, Facebook, and Twitter. Fans can even cruise around Madison Square Garden to see who else was present at the game.
By tagging yourself, you will be entered to win two tickets to a Rangers 2011-2012 home game of your choice. You weren’t able to make it to the game? No problem. Find the Blueshirts United logo in the FanCam for your chance to win.
Fans can follow updates on www.newyorkrangers.com and the Rangers Facebook Page, and will be notified on those sites as soon as the FanCam is available for tagging on Friday, Oct. 28.
The Rangers are the first NHL team to utilize this cutting edge technology.
