League Teams Up With Accesso
accesso® Teams Up with National Gridiron League
to Power Ticketing for the New Arena Football League
ORLANDO, Fla. (Feb. 27, 2019) – accesso Technology Group plc (AIM: ACSO) has signed an exclusive three-year agreement to provide online and mobile ticketing solutions to the National Gridiron League (NGL), a new arena football league consisting of 12 teams set to kick off its first season March 30, 2019. This agreement serves as the most recent example of accesso’s commitment to fueling ticketing operations and the fan experience by delivering the innovative technology for sports teams to truly own every aspect of their ticketing systems.
The spring arena football league will utilize the accesso ShoWareSM solution, a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product, to internally manage every step of the ticketing process on a single, easy-to-use platform. From ensuring a seamless purchasing experience for fans to easing operations and delivering comprehensive reporting, the accesso ShoWare solution will provide NGL operators with the big-picture perspective needed to control their ticketing process while maximizing revenue. The solution offers user-friendly tools that empower operators to make their own decisions regarding pricing and ticket offerings and lays the foundation for flexible control of assigned seating venues in the 12 U.S. metropolitan areas the league will play over the course of its season. Single-game tickets and season passes are now available for purchase on the NGL website.
“When we started looking for a ticketing solutions provider, it was important that we retain control of our ticket sales so we could provide the best experience possible to our fans,” said Joe E. McClendon III, Chairman and President of the NGL. “We knew we needed the capability to offer our fans dynamic options that suit their unique needs, especially as mobile ticketing continues to evolve. We’ve found the perfect partner in Accesso and look forward to leveraging access to a suite of services that enable us to truly own and manage our ticketing operations.”
A fast-paced, high-scoring game, arena football is modeled after traditional American football, with variations adopted to accommodate a smaller, indoor playing field. Established in 2017 with the vision of becoming the premier spring alternative to the National Football League, NGL currently has a total of 12 teams in its Eastern and Western Conferences. In its inaugural season, kicking off in April, the league will host 96 regular games and six playoffs, including a championship to round out the season.
“We are incredibly excited to partner with the National Gridiron League,” said Paul Noland, accesso CEO. “Football is a quintessential team sport, and our people are truly team players. We are immensely proud to deliver a solution that perfectly meets the needs of the league and its fans and are looking forward to a long and productive partnership between our organizations.”
