On Thursday, August 27th, Ticket Solutions leadership and their partners joined together for a webinar to discuss best practices regarding the upcoming college football season. The call was moderated by Chris Bain, our North Regional Director and featured commentary from Doug Fowler of FEVO, one of our partners. Given the current climate of collegiate sports, many University athletic departments have shifted their focus to diverse revenue opportunities. Our partners have been compelled to explore creative ways in which they can generate revenue given the circumstances surrounding this upcoming football season. Throughout the call we explored innovative strategies and initiatives, both virtual and in person, that we have been seeing around the sports world. We hope that we provided our partners with ideas to implement with your team, or at the very least, inspired innovative thinking that can be applicable to your given situation.

Thank you for joining us and for your continued commitment and partnership.
