TicketManager Inks Partnership with University of Colorado Enabling Companies to Get ROI on Buffaloes Tickets

Colorado’s Newest Sponsor Helps Companies Use Sports Tickets While Eliminating the Hassle of Unused Tickets

TicketManager, the cloud-based ticket management choice of more than 4,000 companies around the world, has now joined with the University of Colorado through a sponsorship agreement with Buffalo Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports.

Since it joined the Pac-12 Conference in 2011, the University of Colorado has notably updated their athletic facilities and the demand for tickets to its sporting events has never been higher. Through its new partnership with TicketManager, it is easy for corporate sponsors of CU and Buffs Sports Properties to manage tickets to those sporting events, and track the return on investment they generate.

“The University of Colorado has a terrific history and one of the nation’s most beautiful campuses,” said Tony Knopp, CEO of TicketManager. “With so many local businesses and those nearby in Denver, there is demand to see the Buffaloes play. We are honored to be selected to partner with CU and provide a ticket management solution.”

The choice of major corporations worldwide, including American Express, Google, HP, MasterCard and many others, TicketManager makes tickets easy to get, easy to distribute, easy to track and easy to report on, all the while maintaining compliance.

Since its founding in 1876, the University of Colorado has educated more than 435,000 students, and its Boulder campus (one of four) was ranked by Best College Reviews as number 49 of the 100 Most Beautiful College Campuses in America. This Boulder campus features the 50,000-seat Folsom Field, where the Buffalo football team plays, and not far away is the 11,000-seat Coors Events Center, where the Buffs play basketball. All this creates the perfect setting for corporate sports entertainment.

“More than ever, corporations see the University of Colorado’s sporting events as attractive venues for entertaining their clients, and our exciting new partnership with TicketManager makes it incredibly easy for them to do so,” said Lance Gerlach, general manager of Buffalo Sports Properties.

Sports tickets are a necessary investment for many businesses, with the average corporate guest representing more than $131,000 in business, while suites at sports venues can bring in more than $2.35 million in potential revenue. So, efficiently managing sports tickets and maximizing their enhancement to profits are crucial to businesses. With TicketManager, corporate executives can analyze how their tickets are working to make decisions on where to allocate ticket requests for high-demand games and how to allocate budgets going forward. Companies can measure return on investment (ROI) and return on business objective (ROBO) in order to understand how their tickets are working for them.

“TicketManager can be accessed right from your smartphone,” said Knopp. “In this way you can conveniently purchase, manage and distribute tickets to where they bring the most benefit. And now we are excited to bring this service to Colorado Buffalo sporting events.”
