Mascot Media and StateChamps have agreed on a partnership to combine their industry leading online ticketing platform and custom printed ticket service to form a comprehensive service for client schools.
“Mascot Media is excited about teaming up with StateChamps’ online ticketing to offer a complete electronic and custom printed ticketing service,” said Katie McEntire, VP Client Operations of Mascot Media. “The technology StateChamps brings to the table will make athletic events so much easier for our client schools and enable us to meet all our partner schools’ event management needs.”
“Online ticketing is important for schools for three main reasons,” StateChamps CMO Eric Housh said. “The fans want it, it’s more secure than cash, and the data is important to help athletic programs connect with fans. Until now, though, online ticketing required school staff to do a lot of extra work and make costly investments in scanners, printers, and internet infrastructure.”
StateChamps’ patent-pending Share and Tear™ Technology delivers electronic tickets to an app on the ticket purchaser’s smartphone. The ticket buyer then presents their phone at the gate, and the digital ticket is “torn” on screen by gate staff. “We designed the digital tearing process to be almost identical to the paper ticket redemption process;” Housh explained, “it requires neither ticket scanners nor internet, and gate staff can be trained in seconds.”
In addition to Share and Tear™, StateChamps has also developed a unique and simple point-of-sale app, StateChamps POP, designed specifically for use in schools. High schools can now accept credit card payments at their events, making it easier for communities to make purchases and support their schools.
StateChamps’ team of over 80 ticketing professionals power an “Omni-Service” approach. After the school sends the schedule and ticket price information, StateChamps does the work to set everything up. “The school gets secure, powerful, and hassle-free online ticketing at no cost, with no work required,” Housh said.
