ATLANTA, GA – Union Omaha and The Aspire Group (Aspire) have partnered together for the club’s 2023 USL League One (USL) season. The Aspire National Sales Center (NSC) is conducting a remote sales and service campaign focused on driving single game and group tickets.
Aspire’s National Sales Center, led by Jay Miller and Malcolm Anderson, will manage the campaign, including all personnel hiring and training. Aspire’s National Sales Center has generated over $15 million dollars in revenue for over 60 partners to date.
“Excited to be working with the 2021 USL League One Champions, Union Omaha,” said Director of the NSC, Jay Miller. “We are glad to be able to expand on the already great work their staff has done to drive results. Looking forward to bringing more fans out from the greater Omaha area to experience the action!”
