OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 30, 2015 – As a part of its commitment to the community in Oklahoma, U.S. Cellular will host a scavenger hunt for a chance to win exclusive tickets to the Oklahoma City Thunder's Blue & White Scrimmage on Oct. 4. The scavenger hunt will take place on Saturday, Oct. 3 at locations throughout Oklahoma City and Newcastle, where the scrimmage will be played as a part of the U.S. Cellular Training Camp.

U.S. Cellular associates will be stationed at three separate locations during the scavenger hunt to present tickets to the winning participants. As the day progresses, U.S. Cellular will post clues for the scavenger hunt on the company's Facebook page to direct fans to the designated locations. The first five fans to arrive at each stop will be awarded a pair of tickets for the Blue & White Scrimmage as well as access to a pre-game "Chalk Talk" meet and greet with Sam Presti, OKC Thunder general manager.

"This is an exciting opportunity for us to provide OKC Thunder fans with a fun activity to build up team pride as well as excitement around the scrimmage and upcoming season," said Joe Cabrera, U.S. Cellular's director of sales, corporate-owned channel for Oklahoma. "We care about Oklahomans and are committed to investing in and serving the communities where we work, live and play."

The Blue & White Scrimmage ticket scavenger hunt is open to all OKC Thunder fans. Also, U.S. Cellular has provided the Newcastle varsity basketball teams with the opportunity to appoint two lucky teachers from Newcastle High School as the honorary team captains for the scrimmage on Oct. 4. More details on the honorary team captains will come at a later date.
