TROY, AL. (February 5, 2019) – Troy Athletics and IMG Learfield Ticket Solutions (IMGLTS) have entered into a ticketing relationship that will bolster and serve the already surging Troy fan base, Troy Director of Athletics Jeremy McClain announced Monday.
“This new relationship with IMG Learfield Ticket Solutions will provide ticketing expertise through season ticket sales, single game sales, business to business sales, group outings and assist in customer service and retention efforts,” McClain said. “IMG Learfield Ticket Solutions has a successful history of working with numerous Group of 5 schools across the country including several in the Sun Belt and Conference USA to increase ticket sales, generate revenue and increase fan bases across all ticketed sports.”
IMG Learfield Ticket Solutions now represents 43 collegiate properties, including 11 on-site relationships in the Group of 5 Conferences. Troy University is the second member of the Sun Belt Conference to join IMGLTS in the past year after Appalachian State launched its relationship last April.
“We are grateful to be selected by Troy University to enhance customer service initiatives and maximize revenue opportunities within athletics,” IMGLTS Senior Vice President Brad Sexton said. “We continue to be impressed by the vision Jeremy McClain and Brent Jones have and we look forward to helping them achieve these high expectations. Troy University has experienced tremendous success on and off the field throughout the past decade, and we know there is even more room for growth together.”
The new relationship has resulted in the addition of two IMGLTS staff members working on-site at Troy. Chris Weil was added as the manager of ticket sales and Ryan Kay as an account executive; both are Troy graduates and Kay was a four-year starter for the Troy football team.
Troy has set attendance records across the majority of its athletic programs over the recent years including three-straight seasons at Veterans Memorial Stadium for the football program.
