It's Promotional Day from Boar's Head at Yankee Stadium

– Sarasota, Fl

As the AL East pennant race enters the post-Labor Day homestretch next week, the New York Yankees are red hot.  But they're not the only hot stuff these days at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

Hot soup from Boar's Head, the most respected name in deli meats and cheeses, is available at the Stadium, adding a perfect complement to the mouth-watering Boar's Head sandwiches available during each game. Hot soups from Boar's Head are made with the finest ingredients, including famous Boar's Head deli meats and cheeses. To celebrate our new soup line-up, Boar's Head is sponsoring a promotional day at Yankee Stadium, featuring a commemorative giveaway.

"In the early days of Major League Baseball, when the Yankees built their fame with Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and other legendary stars, Boar's Head was well on its way to becoming a New York star in its own right," said Boar's Head President Michael Martella. "Boar's Head was established in Brooklyn in 1905 and has grown to become a fan favorite in countless locations far beyond the Big Apple. We are excited to participate in this special promotional giveaway and hope everyone will enjoy our quality foods offered all around Yankee Stadium."

The first 22,000 fans attending the game scheduled to be played on September 8th at 7:05 p.m. against the Tampa Bay Rays will receive a one-of-a-kind soup mug.  This 12-ounce, collectible mug will feature the official navy blue interlocking Yankees logo with the well-known red and black Boar's Head logo.

"The New York Yankees are proud to partner with Boar's Head on the first ever "Soup Mug" promotion, certain to be a fan favorite," says Senior Vice President of Marketing for the New York Yankees, Debbie Tymon.

As the official deli meat and cheese of the New York Yankees, you will find Boar's Head quality salads, soup, and sandwiches – including a warm grilled cheese kids love – located at the Boar's Head concession stand located on the field level inside the Food Court.  In addition, Boar's Head has portable locations in at select areas around the Stadium, and is available the carving station within the Delta Sky 360° Suite.

Fans are encouraged to arrive early to next week's game to be sure you get a Boar's Head-Yankee soup mug.  It comes with a detachable, spill-free and sip-friendly lid – perfect for game day – plus a removable, reusable spoon.  When you're not warming yourself with a hearty Boar's Head soup, you can even use the mug to keep your coffee hot, too.
