ESTERO, FL  -  TicketReturn announced today its new ticketing partnership with A-League Sports, which operates a new arena football league based in Florida. Through the partnership, TicketReturn will become the exclusive provider of box office, online and mobile ticketing solutions for the Sarasota BigCats and the Manatee Neptunes ahead of the A-League’s inaugural season May-July 2019. Both teams will play their home games at Robarts Arena in Sarasota, Fla.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based company offers a full suite of ticketing innovations, including event marketing, access control, attendance reporting, accounting and fundraising features for sports and entertainment venues.

A-League officials said they chose to partner with TicketReturn based on its long history of supporting minor league baseball teams across North America.

Andrew Haines, A-League President of Business, said the teams will also look forward to offering non-ticketed inventory during the online transaction, such as team apparel, concessions and parking. TicketReturn has demonstrated a proven ability to deliver incremental revenue for its ticketing partners by using an assortment of revenue-driving features.
