Iowa State Moves Ticketing Operations to Ticketmaster

Iowa State
University (ISU) has signed a long term agreement naming Ticketmaster the
exclusive ticketing provider for ISU’s University athletics and events. ISU is
moving its event ticketing operations to Ticketmaster this summer and will
utilize Ticketmaster’s patron communication system as well as fundraising technology
to facilitate and manage integrated communication and development programs. ISU
is also installing Ticketmaster’s Access Manager entry control system featuring
barcode ticketing and point-of-entry ticket validation technology.

“The
athletics department at

University
is certainly pleased to be joining the growing Ticketmaster intercollegiate
ticketing solutions family,” said Jamie Pollard, ISU’s Director of
Athletics. “Considering that one of the other main entertainment venues on
campus the

Ticketmaster system, we believe that using this platform will provide
significant efficiencies and synergies in our delivery of tickets to

Iowa

State’s
many ticket-purchasing audiences.”
