Cleveland, Ohio – March 1, 2015 – The nation’s leading ticketing and gate management solution for school-based sports and other ticket-based events, Ticket Roar™, announces its three year partnership agreement with the Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrator’s Association (OIAAA).
The OIAAA was formed in 1956 to advocate for member schools by promoting the educational values of interscholastic athletics and to provide professional development and training for school-based athletic directors. Through this partnership, Home Team Marketing (HTM) will further lend its expertise to the OIAAA, helping member schools optimize their ticketing practices overall, enabling full financial accountability and helping to drive incremental revenues.
According to Patrick Spear, HTM Co-founder and Senior Vice President, School Solutions Sales, “The OIAAA is a national leader in supporting interscholastic athletics. We’ve enjoyed a strong and lasting collaboration with them. This new joint venture is just another example of how together, we will successfully aid member schools, by providing a custom-built solution to handle all of their interscholastic ticketing needs.”
“Home Team Marketing’s new and proprietary ticketing solution, Ticket Roar™, will continue to enable the mission and purpose of interscholastic athletics and help ensure positive outcomes from education-based athletic programs. HTM’s overall support of schools, student-athletes and school sports has been evident for the last 14 years, working with a wide network of schools and state athletic associations across the country. We’re confident that, the addition of an online ticketing system for schools, will be a product many more schools will embrace over the next few years!” said Bruce Brown, OIAAA Executive Director.
