2021-2022 Men’s and Women’s Basketball Timelines

Given the unusual year our industry has experienced, Learfield IMG College Ticket Solutions remains committed to supporting our partners in the best way possible in order to help them to maintain their relationships with fan bases, boosters and student-athletes. Many of our sales teams across the country have had great success by strategically advancing their sales timelines for the upcoming 2021 football season. Fans are extremely willing and ready to come back out to live sporting events as soon as it is permitted. Motivated by the success of 2021 Football sales, a handful of our teams have begun going on-sale for the 2021-22 Men’s and Women’s Basketball seasons. The advanced timelines help create optimism to our various fan bases while enhancing our partner relationships moving forward. Below, you can read about which of our partners are finding success in advancing their basketball timelines.
