MASCOT AND PLAYER APPEARANCES
Community appearances are an essential part of the Chicago Bandits outreach efforts and provide the team the opportunity to generate a positive impact throughout Chicagoland. Giving back to the community through player and mascot appearances allows the Bandits to support a variety of schools, teams, families and organizations, which in turn can help those in need. If you are interested in having a member of the Bandits participate in your event, please review the following guidelines and submit the above request form.
Making a Request
The following policy has been developed as a way to create consistency and fairness to the organizations which request the participation of the Bandits in area events. Due to the demands of travel, work, games and practices, the schedules of Bandits players and coaches are extremely limited. The team will do all it can to accommodate each individual request throughout the 2018 season.
A minimum fee may be required for the appearance ($75 for first hour, $50 for each additional hour at event). Each appearance must be a minimum of one hour can be no longer than three hours total. Appearances lasting longer than three hours can be negotiated upon request.
- Request must be received at least 21 days before to the event date.
- Include typed directions from 27 Jennie Finch Way to the event (please, no Internet maps).
-Please note appearances more than 60 miles from Parkway Bank Sports Complex may result in an additional fee.
