Tixr, the world’s fastest-growing privately held primary ticketing and event commerce marketplace, and the Gary SouthShore RailCats baseball team, announced a deal which makes Tixr the team’s official ticketing partner. Tixr’s agreement with the RailCats is the first team deal to be inked since the ticketing company announced its partnership with the American Association of Professional Baseball earlier this year.
“Tixr is the most user friendly, intuitive platform available anywhere and I cannot wait for our fans to embrace this new digital experience,” said RailCats General Manager Anthony Giammanco.
With this partnership, RailCats fans will have access to a number of Tixr’s innovative features which will allow for a more personalized fan-experience and continue to expand Tixr’s presence in the sports ticketing community.
