Selling Tickets in MLS

chivasEvery so often we like to take a look at what teams around Major League Soccer are doing to market their teams and sell tickets.  It has been a while since we have looked at these efforts.  Let’s start with the struggling second citizens of Los Angeles, Chivas USA.  The tottering franchise hosts it’s local rivals on June 23.  The team is partnering with video provider Red Box to offer discounted tickets to the SuperClassico.  Tickets under the deal  start at just $12 and are available at more than 1,800 Red Box locations around the City of Angels.  The highest price ticket in the package is only $19 per seat, a $5 discount from standard pricing.  The Classico match-up is an important for the league and the June 23 date represents the best chance for Chivas to managed a decent crowd this season.

The Revs have been a revelation on and off the field so far in 2013 and the team is promoting its brand through 4 and six game plans in 2013.  The discounted packages start at just $88 in the Fort and allow fans to choose which games the select.  The tickets can be printed from home and used in any combination to attend matches at Gillette.  The Revs have been down for so long, that the seemingly revitalized unit has drawn some interest over the last few weeks.  Success on the field never translated to great ticket sales, even during the glory years of Twellman, Dempsey, etc…, but is New England ready to now embrace their soccer team?

RSL is offering discounted seats as part of its Maverick Mayhem Corner. The tickets are only $16 and can be purchased at more than 60 Maverick locations in the Salt Lake City area.  The promotion also encourages fans to to scan their Maverick rewards cards in order to earn additional free and discounted gear and tickets.

  1. The crowd at the Revolution/Galaxy game looked good on tv. Hopefully the Rev’s can get their own stadium in the near future,someplace closer to Boston.
