Saints fans filled the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the team's Week 6 battle against the Detroit Lions.
The New Orleans Saints announced today its decision to extend their partnership with the market leading instant mobile sales platform provider ReplyBuy. The two brands worked in collaboration last season, enabling Saints fans to instantly purchase event tickets on their mobile devices by simply responding to a text message.
Fans who participate in the program will receive concierge-style notifications when seats become available enabling them to purchase tickets on-demand in a matter of seconds with no links to click or extra steps required. It's that simple with no extra work for the fan. This solution delivers the kind of instant gratification and solution that Saints fans want along with hundreds of thousands of users across the country. The faster fans respond to buy, the better their seat locations will be. Upon purchase, electronic tickets will be delivered to a fan's phone instantly and then can be scanned at the event.
"The convenience and flexibility ReplyBuy offers our fans is outstanding. We are very grateful and privileged to be able to have this great working relationship," said Michael Stanfield, New Orleans Saints Senior Vice President of Sales. "We are extremely proud to extend this partnership and we are looking forward to continued success."
"We're excited that the New Orleans Saints have chosen us to power their instant mobile sales," said Josh Manley, CEO of ReplyBuy. "We have a core belief that making it easier to engage with fans on-demand while at the same time (and more importantly) completely reducing the buying friction creates a scenario where everyone wins. The decision to expand this partnership further demonstrates the Saints progressive thinking and a mentality of putting the fans first."
The Saints' partnership extension with ReplyBuy will enable fans to receive notice when tickets become available last minute from allotments previously reserved for the visiting team even when games had been previously announced as sold out.
