The Aspire Group Nominated for 2012 Football Business Awards
February 11, 2013
The Aspire Group was recognized for its excellence in product innovation and service delivery, and was nominated for a 2012 Football Business Award for Best Business Serving Football – up to £2m turnover. Since the company’s inception in 2008, customer satisfaction has led to tremendous growth for The Aspire Group. With 26 Fan Relationship Management Centers (FRMCs) currently operating worldwide, Aspire’s ticketing approach and exceptional customer service continues to set the standard in the sports industry.
The Aspire Group’s international presence is a large contributor to the organization. Since partnering with Coventry City Football Club, the local FRMC has generated over £550,000 in ticket revenue at a cost of sale less than 40% for a club whose on-field performance led to relegation after the 2011-12 season. Also in 2012, The Aspire Group partnered with London Irish Rugby Club to launch an outbound ticket sales operation in Aviva Premiership Rugby. Since April 2012, the London Irish FRMC has generated over £160,000 in new ticket revenue.
The other nominees in the category include Stadium Experience, Quest for Future Solutions / Manchester United’s Environmental Management Action Group (EMAG), Freestyle Football Federation, Piglets Pantry – Brighton & Hove Albion FC, defibshop.co.uk, and Statsports Technologies.
“This is a privilege to be nominated for a Football Business Award. The other finalists in the category are all very successful businesses, and we are honored to be included among these organizations. Our remarkable team works tirelessly to drive innovation and offer the best customer service in the industry,” said Bernie Mullin, Chairman & CEO.
This nomination adds to the long list of accolades, achievements, and awards for The Aspire Group. In 2012, The Aspire Group was also recognized for a StadiumBusiness Award and a Sports Business Award.
