PRESS RELEASE: “UTAH JAZZ TO OFFER FANS NEW SEASON TICKET TRANSFER PROGRAM”
SALT LAKE CITY, UT (Utah Jazz) January 21, 2010 – The Utah Jazz are proud to be the first team in the NBA to provide an online service which allows season ticket holders the ability to sell and transfer the “renewal rights” to their seat locations to interested buyers. This new service provides fans the opportunity to become a season ticket holder in sold-out seating areas that are not available directly from the Utah Jazz.
“We are excited to offer this new online service where Utah Jazz fans can buy and sell the renewal rights to seat locations in a safe and easy manner,” said Jim Olson, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “We are very proud to be the first team in the NBA to offer this online service to our fans.”
“We are proud to expand upon our successful partnerships in the NFL, MLB, and motorsports by announcing the Utah Jazz as our first partner in the NBA,” said Kyle Burks, President of STR Marketplace. “By allowing transfers of Non-PSL seat locations, the Utah Jazz have created an entirely new revenue stream that will provide a service to their fans and increase season ticket renewals.”
Once a seat location is transferred, the purchaser becomes the new account holder of record and will receive all future invoices and correspondence for the season tickets, playoff tickets and other available tickets for that specific seat location directly from the Utah Jazz. The previous account holder will no longer have any “renewal rights” to that seat location.
Benefits of the Utah Jazz Transfer Marketplace:
-Post and sell the “renewal rights” to your seat location at no upfront cost.
-View and purchase the “renewal rights” to a seat location from a current season ticket holder.
-Upgrade by selling your current seat location and purchasing a new seat location.
