BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Manatees and Viera Comics have come together to host an action-packed Friday night at Space Coast Stadium on Friday, July 29 to celebrate Pokémon Go night with the Manatees.
Pokémon Go with the Manatees will include the opportunity for fans to win prizes from Viera Comics, battle for their team to take over Space Coast Stadium and join Manatees players on the field following the game to “Catch ‘Em All.”
Upon arrival at Space Coast Stadium, Pokémon Go trainers are encouraged to check-in at the Pokémon Go table to receive raffle tickets for Pokémon themed prizes and to register to join the Manatees on the field post game.
A lure will be dropped at PokéStops around the stadium at 5:30 p.m. and for every 30 check-ins at the concourse table we will continue to drop lures throughout the night.

“This is a great phenomenon and to be able to go on the field and hunt for Pokémon is a great opportunity and I’m happy to be a part of it,” Viera Comics owner Peter Pappas said,
“It’s the job of small business owners to reach out to the community and do fun things.”
Fans can earn extra chances at prizes by posting photos of Pokémon at and around the stadium, using #TeesLevelUp. Following the game, those trainers that have registered will join Manatees players on the field.
