New Orleans, LA and Santa Monica, CA – October 2, 2023 -Tixr, the world’s fastest-growing privately held primary ticketing and event commerce marketplace, today announced a new long-term partnership with the premier rugby team, The New Orleans Gold (NOLA Gold). The deal names Tixr as the exclusive primary ticketing and e-commerce partner for NOLA Gold.
NOLA Gold, established in 2017, is one of thirteen Major League Rugby teams and the first to upgrade its operations with Tixr’s modern ticketing and unified commerce technology. Over the years, the high-adrenaline game has become one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States. Through the partnership with Tixr, NOLA Gold fans will enjoy a highly visual, user-friendly interface for seamless browsing, a superior mobile experience, and intuitive reserved seat selection for season packages and individual games. Tickets will be available for purchase via Tixr for the 2024 season beginning January 1, 2024.
“We are thrilled to partner with a company that shares our passion for innovation,” said Tim Falcon, NOLA Gold Owner and Co-Founder. “Tixr is built by experts committed to working with us to create fan experiences that are truly the best in the world. NOLA fans deserve the best experience, and that’s what we are building with Tixr.”
NOLA Gold has become a staple in the local community. The team, whose roster includes Rugby World Cup veterans, moved into a new facility, the Shrine on Airline, in March of 2020. The 10,000-seat stadium allowed the team to further increase their community efforts by providing jobs and revenue to the greater New Orleans metro area. Under the leadership of head coach Kane Thompson, NOLA Gold have become a rugby team to watch.
“In just a few short years, NOLA Gold has made such a positive impact on the city and the sport, and Tixr is proud to welcome this inspiring team into our growing professional sports family,” said Patrick Bradley, Chief Revenue Officer for Tixr. “Together, our goal is to provide the best possible fan experience with our fresh take on ticketing and continue building for the future together.”
