PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Adios, Chalupa. Hello, Sausage Egg McMuffin.

The Portland Trail Blazers announced Monday they partnered with McDonald's for its "100-Point Play" promotion for the next five seasons.

Every time the Trail Blazers eclipse the 100-point mark at The Moda Center, fans in attendance will be offered a voucher for a free McDonald's Sausage McMuffin with Egg.

The McMuffin replaces the Taco Bell Chalupa - and its "CHA-LU-PA" chants - as the 100-point prize.

Starting this fall, fans will be encouraged to chant "MICK-E-DEES, MICK-E-DEES" until 100 points is reached.

The Blazers say there will be scoreboard signage and videos, and rhythm through the sound system to keep the crowd in sync.

The promotion will officially tip-off with the Trail Blazers' 2013-14 regular season home opener, Saturday, Nov. 2 against the San Antonio Spurs.

For that game only, every fan in attendance will be offered a Sausage McMuffin with Egg voucher. A second Sausage McMuffin with Egg voucher will be offered if the team reaches 100 points.

McDonald's and the Trail Blazers are also launching a digital "100 Point Player of the Game" contest. Fans will be encouraged to vote online for which Trail Blazers player they think will score the 100th point. One fan that selected the correct player will be chosen to receive a Trail Blazers merchandise item, courtesy of McDonald's.
