The 2009 Bronco Football Commemorative DVD, Return To Glendale: The Road To Perfection, is slated for release this Friday night (March 12) beginning at 6pm through the exclusive Bronco merchandise locations at the Bronco Shop and the Blue and Orange Store.
Bronco players will be on hand at two locations on Friday night from 6-8pm for the official release. Fans are encouraged to come to the Bronco Shop at the Boise State Student Union Building or upstairs in the Boise Towne Square Mall near the Blue and Orange Store on Friday night. A follow-up release is set for Noon-2pm on Saturday for Canyon County fans at the Bronco Shop at Nampa's Treasure Valley Marketplace.
A complete list of players scheduled to attend Friday and Saturday's meet and greet events will be released on Wednesday. At the release events, a special edition of The Blue Magazine: Fiesta Bowl Champions will also be available for the first time. The 100 page full color, glossy commemorative book includes award winning photography and design, in depth analysis from the season and Fiesta Bowl week, and insight from players, coaches and fans, including an exclusive reflection on the 2009 season penned by head coach Chris Petersen.
For the three release events, fans will be allowed to bring one outside autograph item (ie - football, t-shirt, hat) to be signed by players. Additionally, those in attendance can also get their Return To Glendale DVD or special edition of The Blue Magazine: Fiesta Bowl Champions autographed by players.
The Return To Glendale DVD is a first ever dual disk set, with nearly three hours of game highlights, player interviews, behind the scene footage and all-access features that chronicle the Fiesta Bowl championship and 14-0 perfect season of 2009. Each day this week, BroncoSports.com will release a 30-45 second sneak peak at one of the 22 features that highlight the DVD, as well as profiling the contents of the DVD, which is broken up into four unique sections: Bleed Blue (2009 accomplishments), Carrying The Flag (the players who made it all possible), Two Percent Better (season review and game by game highlights) and Return To Glendale (all the build up and pageantry of the 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl). The previews begin Monday with a look at the Bleed Blue section, and a preview from the "End Zone Assault" feature. Tuesday continues with Carrying The Flag, followed by Two Percent Better on Wednesday and Return To Glendale on Thursday, all leading to Friday's much anticipated release.
This year's DVD retails for $19.99 with proceeds from sales going to help the Bronco football program by generating funds for the Boise State athletic summer school scholarship program. Friday night's initial release at the Bronco Shop and Blue and Orange Store will be followed between March 13th and March 16th by a valley wide release at more than 50 retail outlets, including Costco locations in Boise, Nampa, Twin Falls and Pocatello, and local Albertsons, Walgreens, Zamzows and Best Buy stores.
