CHICAGO – Vivid Seats has been named an Official Partner of Marquette Athletics and Learfield’s Marquette Sports Properties, effective immediately. As a result of the partnership, Golden Eagles fans will have the benefit of shopping in the Vivid Seats marketplace for any ticketing needs throughout the college athletics season. The partnership is the fifth between Vivid Seats and a BIG EAST property, including Georgetown, Providence, St. John’s, and Villanova.
“This partnership between Marquette Athletics and Vivid Seats will benefit both our fans as well as our student-athletes,” said Brian Hardin, Marquette Deputy Athletics Director. “The dependable customer service and innovative technology that Vivid Seats offers will create an excellent purchasing experience for our supporters. The sponsorship of our athletics department and information shared with Marquette from Vivid Seats will allow us to grow as a department and continue to offer our student-athletes a first-class experience.”
On the heels of a 20-win campaign last season, the Marquette men’s basketball team has started the 2016-17 season with a 6-2 record and is averaging 87.0 points per game. An intrastate showdown with Wisconsin is this Saturday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center and the Big East Conference slate includes home games against three schools currently ranked in the top 13: defending national champion Villanova, Xavier and Creighton.
