Launching Special March Madness Programming with Three New Ways-to-Win this Month, Make COVER 3 Your Home Court
COVER 3, Austin and San Antonio’s premier sports bar and restaurant, is excited to announce that the locally-owned-and-operated restaurant group is launching all new programming for March Madness later this month. The multi-faceted initiatives will be taking place at all COVER 3 locations, along with COVER 2, and will feature exciting opportunities for basketball fans to get in on the action and win big.
COVER 3’s March Madness programming features the Perfect Bracket Challenge, which offers a chance to win a $5,000 gift card and wings for a year; Daily Bracket Turn-In Raffles, featuring the chance to win daily prizes while brackets are accepted from March 15 through 18; The Fan Pass featuring the chance to win one of several great prizes upon completion of four in-store objectives: and the Game Day Madness Menu, featuring special game-day munchies from Tuesday, March 17 through the end of the tournament on Monday, April 6.
The Perfect Bracket Challenge
For die-hard fans who think they’ve got what it takes to pen the perfect bracket, COVER 3 invites guests to try their hand at winning the Perfect Bracket Slam Dunk Prize – a $5,000 COVER 3 gift card and free wings for one year if a perfect bracket with each winning team guessed correctly is submitted. Brackets cost $10 to fill out and will be accepted from Selection Sunday on March 15 through Wednesday, March 18 at 11 p.m. $5 from every bracket submitted will benefit Partnerships for Children and their mission to provide resources, support and comfort for foster children and families in the Central Texas community.
Daily Bracket Turn-In Raffles
All patrons can still win big by simply by filling out and submitting a tournament bracket. Once the field of 68 qualifying NCAA teams is announced on Selection Sunday (March 15) guests are invited to purchase/submit a bracket for $10 ($5 from every bracket submitted will benefit Partnerships for Children) for the chance to win daily prizes while brackets are accepted through Wednesday, March 18.
At the close of business daily (Sunday, March 15th through Wednesday, March 18th), each bracket submission will go into a daily drawing to receive a $50 COVER 3 gift card. Each winner of the four Daily Bracket Turn-In Raffles will be selected at random and announced via social media the following day.
The Basketball Madness Fan Pass
In addition to COVER 3’s bracket promotions, Selection Sunday also kicks off another chance to win some great prizes with the Basketball Madness Fan Pass promotion. The promotion, which will be taking place throughout the entire three-week tournament, encourages guests to complete four different objectives in-store throughout March Madness including completing a bracket, donating to Partnerships for Children, dining with COVER 3, and joining COVER 3’s new rewards and loyalty program. Participants who complete all four objectives are eligible to turn in a fan pass by the NCAA Championship on Monday, April 6th for the chance to win one of several great prizes, including free wings for one year and a $300 COVER 3 gift card. For promotion eligibility, participants must complete the following:
Complete your bracket:
Once the field of 68 qualifying NCAA teams is announced on Selection Sunday (March 15), eligible participants are required to purchase/submit a bracket while brackets are accepted through Wednesday, March 18. Brackets cost $10 to fill out and $5 from every bracket submitted will directly benefit Partnerships for Children
Donate to Partnerships for Children:
In support of Partnerships for Children’s mission to support the Central Texas foster community and its need for sporting equipment, COVER 3 will be hosting an equipment drive for new sporting equipment throughout the duration of the tournament (please note that PFC cannot accept used items). In lieu of sporting equipment, Academy gift cards and monetary donations, which allow PFC to purchase child-specific equipment needs, will also be accepted. Each Fan Pass participant are required to donate one new piece of equipment to the drive.
Dine with COVER 3:
While basketball fans may not need an incentive to visit Austin’s premier sports restaurant and bar for game-day action, eligible Fan Pass participants are required to dine at a COVER 3 or COVER 2 location on three separate occasions throughout the tournament. With each visit from March 15th through April 6th, participants will check off one of the DINE boxes on the Madness Fan Pass. In addition to the regularly available menu, the Game Day Madness Menu will offer special game-day menu items – see more below.
Join our new rewards and loyalty program:
Launching in early March, eligible participants are required to join COVER 3’s exciting, new mobile app-based rewards and loyalty program. Every visit to COVER 3 or COVER 2 will earn points towards discounts, free menu items, merchandise and more.
