Written by Ashley Kubiszyn, Marketing and Communications Director, TicketCity
AUSTIN, TX–(Marketwired – March 11, 2015) – After 25 years and millions of tickets sold, TicketCity has decided to just give everything away. Well, not everything, but they are giving away a year of tickets to one lucky fan. This prize, or “the best gift you’ll ever receive” as they like to call it, consists of 2 tickets to each of the following: an MLB game, an NBA game, an NHL game, an NFL game, a college basketball game, a college football game, and a concert. The winner, also known as “the chosen one”, will be able to pick which games and concerts they want to attend.
“This contest is our way of high-fiving every one of our customers who helped get us to where we are today,” says Randy Cohen, Chief Energizing Officer. “When I started this business 25 years ago, we only had one computer and the internet was just a twinkle in Al Gore’s eye. Now we are the best website, the best service and the best dressed in the industry. Twenty-five has never looked so good!”
