American Express once again held its annual “Hawks Island” in Seattle on October 1st, hosting several hundred American Express Card Members and American Express-accepting merchants on a 200-foot+ barge (the length of more than two basketball courts) at Pier 66. For the second consecutive year we had the chance to attend this fun pre-game experience. Hawks Island is definitely a must go if you are a casual or diehard Seahawks fan like myself.
As part of its partnership with the Seattle Seahawks, American Express is bringing one-of-a-kind experiences, such as Hawks Island, to the 12s! Returning for the second year, Hawks Island is the ultimate gameday experience that includes special appearances from Seahawks legends, pre-game party activities, and premium food and beverages from some of Seattle’s favorite eateries. It all takes place on a 200-foot+ barge (the length of over two basketball courts) off of Pier 66 in the Puget Sound.
Special perks for 12s during Seahawks season.
As you may know, American Express partnered with the Seahawks earlier this season (it’s the first existing NFL sponsorship of this scale) to provide a number of different benefits for Card Members and the 12s, including Gridiron Radios (like the ones at the US Open), free Section 12 pre-game experience at Occidental Park, Blue Friday offers with surprise player appearances and others.
