The Aspire Group Exceeds $1 Million in Revenue for Loyola Marymount University
November 4, 2021
ATLANTA, GA – The Aspire Group (Aspire) recently surpassed $1 million in lifetime ticket revenue with Loyola Marymount University Athletics (LMU). Aspire and LMU first partnered in 2017, establishing an on-site Fan Relationship Management Center (FRMC) to sell and service tickets across all ticketed sports. Since then, Aspire staff have generated an average of $17 for LMU Athletics each time an outbound sales activity took place.
Aspire’s staff, in collaboration with LMU leadership, successfully increased revenue production during each of their first three years on campus. They have sold nearly 80,000 tickets to Lions fans and had a +27% increase in average annual athletic revenue since the inception of the partnership. Aspire also worked to ensure LMU’s fiscal health during the COVID pandemic, converting over $25K in unusable season tickets into athletic fund donations and rolling over an additional $31K in ticket revenue to the 2021-22 season.
“We are thrilled to get up every day and work with such a passionate staff at LMU Athletics that cares about their fans and student-athletes both inside and outside of the arena,” said Kyle Knickerbocker, Director of Sales and Service, “Our staff on-site are equally as passionate, and are ready to drive the next $1M for our true partners at LMU”
