Atlanta, GA– The Aspire Sport Marketing Group announced today a multi-year partnership with South Georgia Tormenta Football Club for outsourced ticket sales and service.

Aspire will have an on-site Fan Relationship Management Center at The Clubhouse and Erk Russell Park in Statesboro, Georgia, that will be responsible for sales, service, operations, strategic consulting and year-round training. Mike Boswell of The Aspire Group, will host as the liaison for the partnership.

“Our goal is to win championships. And that starts with aligning ourselves with the champions already in place at Aspire,” stated Darin Van Tassell, President of South Georgia Tormenta FC, “Sporting events have always been more about creating experiences and memories than it has been about simply selling tickets, and that is a tradition that the management team at Aspire helps create.”

“We are impressed with the trajectory Tormenta FC is on. With a new purpose-built soccer stadium on the horizon, we look forward to servicing fans as they get further acquainted with the club while providing them the personal attention they deserve”, stated Bill Fagan, Aspire’s Chief Operating Officer.

The partnership will initially employ one manager, with the capacity to add sales and service consultants in future. Staff will be located on-site in Statesboro, Georgia. In addition to support of the USL, Aspire has extensive experience consulting and selling soccer, including Major League Soccer (North America), Canadian Soccer League, English Premier League (U.K.), Ligue 1 (France), Serie A (Italy) and Liga MX (Mexico).
