Minnesota Wild® fans invited to celebrate team's success through Associated Bank's Ultimate Wild Fan Program


ST. PAUL, Minn., April 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate the Minnesota Wild's on-ice success and our continued partnership, Associated Bank is extending its unique online, branch and arena programming into the post-season.

While the Wild are in the playoffs, fans on Associated Bank's social media channels are invited to enter the Win Big With the Wild Sweepstakes for the chance to receive two tickets to a Wild playoff game.

To further celebrate the team's playoffs position, fans are invited to join in the storied tradition of hockey players growing good-luck facial hair during the post-season. Fans can visit to upload a photo, give themselves one of several styles of beards — some fashioned after current Wild players — and share their playoff good-luck in the form of a digital photo on social media.

"As the Wild continues to skate toward victory, Associated Bank is proud to tap into the excitement of the playoffs and provide unique opportunities for die-hard fans through ticket giveaways and interactive online programs," said Christopher Piotrowski, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Associated Bank. "Associated is proud to extend our unique partnership with the Minnesota Wild and further cheer the team to victory."

Fans can show their Wild pride with Associated Bank exclusive Wild Checks® and Wild Debit Mastercard®. This will include a $150 offer and a 15-percent discount at all The Hockey Lodge™ locations, the Wild's official team store. Visit
