Citi is offering ThankYou cardmembers a variety of experiences for the
entire family, including clinics where young sports fans can learn
skills and sportsmanship from professional baseball, football and
“Experiencing the energy and pure love for the game that young players
bring to the field is always fun, and I’m looking forward to being out
there, at Citi Field, and teaching the kids some of the fundamentals of
the game,” said award-winning baseball slugger David Wright.
Added two-time championship MVP quarterback Eli Manning, “Growing up,
football was a big part of our lives and brought not just fun and
friendships, but an appreciation of sportsmanship on and off the field.
It’s always great to expose kids to the game at an early age, and I am
happy to be working with Citi at their clinic for young football fans.”
Experiences also include unique opportunities for cardmembers to enjoy
popular music live. "I love introducing new music to my fans in an
intimate setting,” said country music star Luke Bryan. “I'm really proud
to work with Citi to create unique experiences for my fans."
