Ace Ticket proudly announced today its designation as the Official Fan Travel Partner of the New England Patriots as well as an “Official Partner” of the New England Revolution. This relationship will allow fans the opportunity to see the Patriots play on the road with Official Fan Travel Packages provided by Ace Ticket.
“Ace is excited to serve the needs of our fellow New England Patriots fans” said Ace Ticket Sale Manager Tricia Dewolfe. “Traveling to see your favorite team play is a unique experience for any sports fan and this relationship will give us the perfect opportunity to provide that service.”
“We are constantly approached by Patriots fans looking for help finding tickets to road games,” said Patriots Vice President of Sales Murray Kohl. “Ace Ticket provides us the resource of a reputable company to which we can refer Patriots fans who want to travel to see games in our opponents’ venues. Ace Ticket is respected as a company that stands behind all of their tickets transactions. It’s a benefit to our fans and a comfort for us to have a partner like Ace Ticket for fan travel packages.”
Jim Holzman, President of Ace Ticket added, “We look forward to a long and successful partnership with the Patriots, Revolution and the Kraft Sports group who are one of the finest organizations in all of professional sports.” This move for Ace Ticket complements its already strong partnership list. Ace has in various forms, partnerships with the Boston Red Sox, Pawtucket Red Sox, Comcast Sports Group (Celtics Television Partner), NESN (Bruins Television Partner), WEEI and WBZ.
Ace Ticket has teamed up with another Boston media outlet to create a unique live studio environment. 98.5 the Sports Hub will now broadcast live from the Ace Ticket Fenway Store (121 Brookline Ave) during select Red Sox home games. The ribbon cutting for the new Sports Hub Ace Ticket Studio took place on Wednesday April 7 at 5:00pm, 2 hours before the Red Sox and Yankees matched up for the rubber game of their three game opening series. The studio made its broadcast debut on Red Sox Opening Day (April 4, 2010) with a live broadcast by Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti.
The Sports Hub/Ace Studio is Ace Ticket’s second partnership on a media studio. In 2009 Ace Ticket and Comcast Sports Net opened the Comcast Ace Ticket studio at Ace’s Causeway street location, directly across from the TD Garden. Comcast broadcasts live from the Ace Ticket studio before and after every Boston Celtics home game. “The studio project went so well with Comcast that we couldn’t wait to do a similar project at our Fenway location. Customers in our Garden and Fenway locations will catch a glimpse of the live broadcasts before Celtics and Red Sox games while they are picking up their tickets” said Ace Ticket CEO James Holzman.
“As 98.5 The Sports Hub enters our first full baseball season, this new partnership with Ace Ticket is a perfect fit for us. Having a fishbowl studio on Brookline Ave just steps from Fenway will benefit both brands.” said Mike Thomas, Program Director of 98.5 The Sports Hub.
