TicketCity Introduces College Football Happy Hour Every Friday in Fall

September 4, 2018

Austin, Texas, Sept. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beginning this week, TicketCity announced plans to host a digital happy hour every Friday in the fall, offering college football fans and event-goers with a five percent, sitewide sale from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. CT. until Dec. 14. The new TicketCity Happy Hour helps fans find the best value for an experience - whether a local college football game, championship or bowl game - without dealing with hiked costs and limited selection.

The majority of event tickets are purchased two weeks prior to the event, with 63 percent of TicketCity’s traffic coming from mobile devices, indicating quick and last minute decisions. The TicketCity Happy Hour makes purchasing easier for consumers looking for a last-minute bargain to attend a college football game.

“Fridays in the fall are typically filled with people travelling home for the weekend or college towns near and far to show their school spirit. By rolling out this offer, we’ll have a community of fans who know that during the happiest hour of the week, they can buy tickets for their school team for a fair value, no matter how many times their plans change leading up to the weekend,” said Jim Howard, Vice President of Operations at TicketCity.

The launch of Friday happy hours is part of TicketCity’s ongoing strategy to strengthen digitally-enabled customer relationships, with a website and mobile app refresh earlier this summer that provided an optimized user experience. New features offer fans a faster way to easily discover, review and purchase tickets to live events around the globe providing today’s data-loving consumers increased confidence with a range of helpful ticketing and seating insights such as seat views, price comparison and best value data.

TicketCity Happy Hour is available for all college football games starting Friday, Sept. 7. No online promo code is required, making it simple and convenient to save.

Guests also can sign up here to receive happy hour email reminders and other TicketCity exclusives and promotions.
