Eagles Take Care of Fan Who Didn't Win ‘Tickets for 100 Years' Contest

If you watched the beginning of the 2019 NFL draft, you probably saw a Giants fan win the NFL's "Tickets for 100 Years" contest, beating out Eagles fan Matt MacMillan. He was the guy in the full Eagles suit. 

MacMillan isn't leaving the contest empty-handed though. 

On Saturday, the Eagles brought the 32-year-old South Jersey resident and his family to the NovaCare Complex for Day 3 of the draft and surprised them with four Eagles season tickets for the next 10 years. And the moment he found out was pretty cool. 

It's not 100 years, but that's still a pretty good consolation prize. 

"We are very excited and thankful for Matt and his entire family," Eagles president Don Smolenski said in a statement. "His dedication and support of the Philadelphia Eagles are always on display and his passion is infectious. While he did not win the NFL's grand prize, we wanted to take this opportunity to reward Matt and his family for their generational fandom and thank them for being such incredible stewards of Eagle pride. We look forward to celebrating with Matt, his wife Alyssa, and their two children at Lincoln Financial Field for the next decade."

Pretty cool move by the Eagles. If you haven't seen it yet, here's a video about MacMillan's history of a fan.
