Valpo Selects TickPick’s Industry-Leading Ticket Platform Offering Low Fees and Transparent Pricing

Valparaiso University and Van Wagner Sports and Entertainment’s Collegiate Division announced today the selection of TickPick LLC as the official ticket marketplace of Valparaiso University.

The partnership will allow TickPick to serve as the secondary ticketing platform for Valpo Athletics, including the offering of select tickets priced at face value for various Valpo events.

“We are honored to strike this strategic partnership with Valpo, a longstanding university that is dedicated to pursuing excellence both in academics and athletics,” Brett Goldberg, co-CEO and co-founder of TickPick said. “TickPick is dedicated to providing the best ticketing experience for Valpo students, faculty, staff and fans alike through our transparent and low fees and massive ticket inventory.”

TickPick features an industry-leading approach to ticket selling with its all-in pricing and reduced fees. The company offers simplified transactions without hidden fees or commissions that compare favorably to the 25 percent or more in total fees charged by competitors. 

“We are excited to partner with TickPick and make Valpo Athletics more accessible to our fans and neighbors in the Region and beyond,” said Mark LaBarbera, Valparaiso University director of athletics. “Watching quality Missouri Valley competition in person has become simpler and more convenient.” 

The multi-faceted partnership will provide TickPick with high-level exposure and engagement throughout the Valpo campus as well as the Northwest Indiana region via signage, promotions, online presence and social media programs. The partnership will also feature upcoming contests for Valpo fans to win one-of-a-kind experiences and tickets to exciting events. 

Van Wagner Sports and Entertainment (VWSE), the sponsorship and multimedia rights partner for Valpo Athletics, worked with TickPick leadership to develop the partnership.
