NIU Links New Ticket Sales Partner
NIU has contracted with Taymar Sales U.- a college sports marketing company focused on driving new revenue through managing its outbound ticket sales. NIU is the 7th college program-the first in the Midwest and the MAC to give TSU full responsibility for outbound ticket sales. Full story on the NIU website.... hopefully it helps.

What are outbound ticket sales (as opposed to inbound)? Aren’t all ticket sales outbound? I wonder how much NIU will pay them?

Maybe if you are one of the 7,000 that go to a football game, they are making you pay to get out as well........Huskie Stadium is such a gem maybe they are giving us the option of staying instead of leaving after a game. I have NO idea what outbound sales are.....

RE: NIU Links New Ticket Sales Partner
FWIW, I bought tickets at SIU about 10 years ago when NIU played down there and I get an email from them every single year like I live in Carbondale. (same with the Chicago Wolves and probably Peoria Chiefs).

I've purchased a large number of tickets at NIU (not a season ticket holder) and I don't think I've gotten one call or email about it the following year asking if I was interested in buying more.

Granted, I find this tactic annoying and tacky but I'm sure it works with enough people as to make it worthwhile. Just like any telemarketing firm. Someone has to give a credit card number or else they couldn't keep the electricity turned on.

I will say this, SIU kicks our ass in attendance. But it's a different culture down there. I grew up in that region and basketball is pretty high on the list of people's priorities (mostly high school basketball but the colleges..I'm including the JUCOs...do really well too). It's basically Hoosiers down there without the iconic movie. And a lot of people down there are big SIU fans. You see their gear all over. The southern part of the state is pretty isolated so there isn't a ton of competition. You get a decent amount of UofI fans and then a smattering of Kentucky and Murray State fans (and maybe a little EIU, SEMO, and Evansville thrown in depending on the area of SoIll you live in). Other than that, they all like SIU to some degree or another.

Big Red my parents are from southern Illinois ( Herrin and Johnson City). Are they close to your roots?

Little Egypt has always adopted the Salukis as their region’s claim to fame when it comes to sports. Murray St has a solid following down there too.

RE: NIU Links New Ticket Sales Partner
This could be a first step in trying to build a connection with those 160,000 Chicago-area alumni that STF likes to talk about. It is also one of the things that can be done while we're under the cloud of the Covid-19 crisis.

When STF announced the BYU game at SeatGeek (which may/may not be played) I was wondering how he planned to reach those alumni. Northern doesn't seem to have much of a marketing program/plan to speak of.

Regardless -- and pardon my repeat of an idea I like to push -- if Northern moves the two weekday night games to SG starting in fall 2021, and does it every year for consistency, this could be the mechanism for marketing that.

If not, or not, then perhaps this will be the means NIU uses to fill in those contact gaps mentioned r.e. SIU ... if you're not or cannot do it yourself, give somebody a cut to do it for you.

Kind of. Herrin and Johnson City are both further south, nearer to Marion and Carbondale. I was further north in Centralia (about an hour north). When I was in high school, Herring was in our conference but they dropped a class (to 2A) a couple years after I graduated along with Benton, West Frankfort, and Harrisburg.

Talk about a strange coincidence; my mother is from Herrin and my father is from Johnson City.

Right on my mom from Herrin and dad from Johnson city as well-they would be turning 93 this year but both have passed. I actually went to kindergarten and 1st grade down there before moving up north. Most of my dads family moved north as well but most of mom’s side stayed down south. I have a couple of aunts still alive and a ton of cousins down there.They are Illinois residents but probably relate to the south more so-good hard working people. Certainly a small world sometimes.
