The A’s have spirit, yes they do. The A’s have spirit, how about you?

In an effort to celebrate and thank their fans, the Oakland A’s are replacing its annual Fan Fest event with its inaugural Spirit Week. Beginning Monday, Jan. 23, the week-long celebration gives fans access to daily ticket deals and special giveaways and concludes with an event open to all fans on Friday, Jan. 27, at Plank in Oakland.

Ticket deals include: buy one, get one free offer for Opening Day; discounted tickets for select promotional days; fee-free tickets and more. Oakland A’s regular season tickets then go on sale Saturday, Jan. 28.

“Throughout the week, the A’s will continue to support the local community through events and donations to nonprofit partners,” the team said in its press release. The A’s will surprise local middle school, high school, and college baseball and softball teams with lunch, A’s swag, equipment, and a donation to their athletic program. The A’s will also make a donation and host breakfast at a local elementary school.”
