The Indiana Fever plans to open their 2015 WNBA schedule with a bang – or at least thousands of glowing bright lights – during their home opener on Saturday, June 6, when the club hosts the Minnesota Lynx (7:00 p.m.) during a Guinness World Records® Attempt presented by Papa John’s. The Fever plan to establish the record for the most people lighting a glowstick simultaneously at a single venue.
For the Fever’s home opener on June 6 (7:00 p.m.), we will be hosting a Guinness World Record Attempt® presented by Papa John’s.
All fans entering Bankers Life Fieldhouse will receive a red glowstick courtesy of Papa John’s Pizza, and when the lights dim before the Fever’s team introduction, fans will be instructed to light their glowsticks simultaneously. Guinness World Records representatives will be on site to verify the record.
We’re really excited about this…we’d love to get around 10,000 fans and more to fill the stands.”
The Fever, hoping to extend a WNBA record with an 11th consecutive playoff berth in 2015, begin their 16th season when the glowsticks shine before a rematch of the 2012 WNBA Finals that produced the team’s first WNBA title.
Other highlights of the evening will include glow-in-the-dark face painting for kids and a halftime appearance from Guinness World Record Holder Ken Kovach who will perform with the Skyriders Trampoline Show. Kovach holds a hula-hoop record with 131 revolutions in one minute while doing somersaults.
Guinness World Records Limited is the ultimate authority on record-breaking achievement. A Guinness World Records achievement is an incredible thing. It means being second to none – and an accomplishment that is both officially recognized and amazing to behold. The Indiana Fever look forward to being tagged as OFFICIALLY AMAZING®!
