Tixr Named Official Ticketing Partner of the Military Bowl
The Military Bowl, which matches teams from the ACC and the American Athletic Conference, has selected Tixr, the world’s fastest-growing privately held primary ticketing and event commerce marketplace, as the official ticketing partner for its annual college football postseason game.
Ticket pre-sales are happening now, with the general on sale slated for later this month. The 2023 Military Bowl will be played on Wednesday, Dec. 27 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. ET and the game will be televised on ESPN. Proceeds from the Bowl benefit the USO and Patriot Point, the Military Bowl Foundation’s 294-acre retreat for recovering service members.
With this partnership, Military Bowl fans will have access to a number of Tixr’s innovative features including Waitlist, which allows fans to reserve tickets for sold-out events and Tixr Rewards, a way for fans to earn rewards by becoming ambassadors for their favorite events using their social media networks.
“Tixr is thrilled to partner with the Military Bowl for such a meaningful collegiate football game that benefits our service members,” Tixr Vice President of Sports Nate Liberman said. “It is our goal to continue to improve college ticketing and to introduce a modern more efficient ticketing system to athletics as a whole. We are excited to offer the Military Bowl and fans of two storied programs a new innovative way of ticketing.”
The partnership will expand Tixr’s presence in the sports ticketing community. This year alone Tixr has announced ticketing partnerships for the Portland Trail Blazers’ New G League Affiliate Rip City Remix, the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and Mercer University’s NCAA Division I Athletics.
“Tixr has a reputation for offering modern and innovative ticketing solutions. We are looking forward to partnering with Tixr and providing our fans with a more seamless and user-friendly fan-first experience,” Military Bowl Foundation President & Executive Director Steve Beck said. “We are thrilled to utilize Tixr’s advanced technology and fully integrate the new platform into all aspects of the Military Bowl’s ticketing.”
