Eagles make deal with Wendy’s, bring frosty fever to the Linc and beyond

Posted on September 30, 2022

For those wishing a fan-favorite tradition of the 76ers made its way over to the Eagles… it’s your lucky day.

According to The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Josh Tolentino, the Eagles have made a new, multi-year partnership with Wendy’s, and will be awarding fans with a free small frosty if the team prevents the opponent from scoring in the first quarter.

However, it won’t just apply to home games – even when Philadelphia’s away, fans get still win if they hold defensively.

The promotion mirrors the Sixers’ “Frosty Freeze Out” deal with Wendy’s, where if a player misses consecutive free throws, fans get a free frosty.

If you’re keeping score at home, the Eagles have held an opponent scoreless in the first two out of three games this season. You have to like the odds of that becoming a weekly occurrence with the way the defense has been playing.

The Promo Should Be An Immediate Hit With Fans

It’s not hard to see how this won’t be a huge hit. If you’ve ever been to a game at Wells Fargo, you know just how much people love frosty’s.

The promotion gets the fans into the game, and while that’s not necessarily a problem the Eagles have ever had to worry about, getting that extra energy won’t hurt either. It’s just another way to continue building up an already fantastic fanbase.

Also noteworthy: back in 2017-18, when the Sixers first partnered with Wendy’s, the result led to a league-low 77.3% free throw shooting at Wells Fargo. Perhaps the Birds will see a similar boost on the field.
