SAINT PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Swarm today announced that it has added Lindsay Guentzel as one of the team’s in-arena hosts for the 2013 season at Treasure Island Field at Xcel Energy Center.
Guentzel will work alongside the Toyota Professor and public address announcer Bruce Cusick on gamedays, and will be emceeing in-game elements with fans and partners.
“I’m really looking forward to being able to interact with Swarm fans,” Guentzel said. “The energy at Xcel Energy Center during Swarm games is unlike anything that I’ve ever experienced, and the fans are so dedicated and in love with their team. I’m really excited to get in front of them and help feed that energy.”
Guentzel’s background includes time spent working for the Minnesota Daily, WCCO-TV, KFAN 100.3, and FOX Sports North. Earlier this year, the New Prague, Minn. native was selected to represent the Minnesota Twins as a MLB Fan Cave participant in New York City.
“We’re excited to have Lindsay join the Swarm,” said Matt McCormack, Director of Brand Marketing for the Swarm. “She brings a great energy to our gameday atmosphere and will be a terrific addition to our team of Howard Green and Bruce Cusick.
“Lindsay’s eagerness to get involved will also translate over to the Swarm’s online presence on Swarm Vision and Twitter, where she already has a strong fan base. We're looking to add members of The Hive to her growing list of followers!”
