Ticket Office enhancements
A concern that I have had in recent years is doing everything we can to make sure seats are filled for Auburn sporting events. We've made some significant steps in the Ticket Office to make it easier for season ticket holders who may not be able to attend a game to get their tickets in the hands of other Auburn fans eager to support our teams.
Through Tiger Ticket Share, basketball and baseball season ticket holders can quickly and easily pass their tickets to other Auburn fans electronically. Season ticket holders simply log into their ticket account and transfer their tickets by entering a name and email address for the recipient. The recipient instantly receives the tickets and can print them at home.
We also have a Ticket Donate program that allows fans to electronically donate their men's basketball and baseball tickets back to the Auburn Athletics Department. We do not resell those tickets. They are distributed to non-profit, youth and military groups at no cost.
Auburn fans also have the option of buying or selling tickets through a new arrangement we have with StubHub! You can access the StubHub! Fan to Fan Ticket Marketplace of Auburn Athletics by visiting aubtix.com.
Another recent improvement is the ability to select your seat when purchasing basketball tickets. If you are interested in purchasing single game basketball tickets, just log on to aubtix.com, select the game you'd like to attend and you will be shown what seats are available. That system has been in place for a few weeks now and the response has been positive.
You may have also seen news this week that we have just this week launched a program enabling fans to upgrade seat locations at men's home basketball games using their Smartphones. The new service will be available beginning at the Alabama game on Feb. 6. You can download the Experience app HERE.
As you can see, there are now several ways to purchase tickets and share or sell tickets you may not be using. As we continue to work to improve the gameday atmosphere at Auburn Arena, I would encourage you to share your tickets with fellow Auburn fans.
'New Day' for Auburn football
As the football recruiting period enters the stretch run, I am excited and encouraged by what I have seen from Coach Malzahn. He is a tireless worker who knows what a championship program looks like. He has a very clear idea of how he wants to run the program, and he has hired a stellar staff of assistants who understand and believe in his vision for Auburn football.
Recruiting is all about building relationships, and that takes time for any new staff. National Signing Day will be an exciting time for Auburn, but the best is yet to come as the new staff build relationships for 2014 and beyond.
To follow the news on Signing Day, get it first by following @footballau and @CoachGusMalzahn on Twitter. You can also find great information on our official Facebook page at facebook.com/auathletics.
As Coach Malzahn said at his introductory press conference, it’s a new day at Auburn. I have no doubt that the future of Auburn football is bright.
God Bless and War Eagle!
