STARKVILLE, Miss. – Mississippi State Athletics announced Learfield Amplify will create an on-campus ticket sales and service team as fall sports begin next month. Seven staff members will encompass the robust team embedded inside the athletics department, providing a heightened level of service and support for Bulldog fans.
“We are thrilled to be able to welcome the Learfield Amplify team to our Bulldog Family as we work to collaboratively grow our ticket base, fill our venues, and create a preeminent game experience for our fans and student-athletes,” said Rhett Hobart, Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Affairs. “Amplify’s best in class resources, training and sales strategies, in partnership with the support of our existing ticket operations team, will help Mississippi State drive record crowds and sell out our venues.”
