“We are building the largest, most extensive, and most exclusive community in sports and live  events to get tickets in the right hands and drive measurable business,” said Tony Knopp, CEO  and Co-Founder of TicketManager. “We have long admired Sports Systems and are excited to  add their accreditation and guest technology and customers to TicketManager.”  

“TicketManager is the ideal company to join forces with, as our two firms have long shared the  same purpose: creating solutions that simplify the challenges faced by rights holders and  corporate partners across sports and entertainment,” added Jim Daigle, President and Founder  of Sports Systems. “We are thrilled to become a part of an expansive and powerful community  of sports and event professionals with shared interests and common goals.”

Following a transition period, Sports Systems’ staff and technology will be merged into  TicketManager’s operations and will adopt the TicketManager name and branding, allowing the  company to offer a comprehensive suite of services across sponsorship, ticketing, guest  management and event accreditation. 

“The Sports Systems acquisition perfectly positions us to meet the broad spectrum of evolving  needs of clients across the industry, as we anticipate the full return of fans, VIP guests and media to sports and entertainment events,” Knopp said.
