Purdue is running a creative promotion to possibly win free season tickets
Purdue is offering a promotion that could kill two birds with one stone.
The team announced that it will have a field-goal contest at halftime of the spring game on April 16. Fans have to have purchased season tickets by April 10 to be eligible.
If a fan can make a kick from 50 yards, it will earn free season tickets for the 2016 season.
Here are the guidelines for the contest:
This Purdue ticket promo begs the question: how many 2000 B1G champ replica trophies did they order at the time? pic.twitter.com/7tJPdz6SLX

As you can see, it is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Only the first 30 to RSVP are eligible to attempt a kick, and only the ticket account holder will get to attempt a kick.
Not only could this promotion boost spring game attendance, but it could also allow Purdue to hold an unofficial walk-on tryout.
As you’ll recall, the Boilermakers only made five field goals in 2015, none of which were longer than 40 yards. That kicker, Paul Griggs, was also a senior.
If a fan can knock down a 50-yarder, it might have a more valuable prize than free season tickets in store.
