Forward Market Media Teams Up with American Airlines - College Football Fans Score
New reservation system lets fans reserve flights to Dallas/Fort Worth, in addition to face-value tickets, to see their favorite team play in the first-ever College Football Championship
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Forward Market Media (FMM), the company behind TeamTix, has launched a first-of-its kind reservation system at http://americanairlines.teamtix.com that allows fans to secure affordable flights to the College Football Championship if their team qualifies.
“We are thrilled to be working with the College Football Playoff to give passionate fans unprecedented access to this once-in-a-lifetime event”
With the 2014 season starting up, and the College Football Playoff (CFP) forward market live and trading at http://collegefootballplayoff.teamtix.com/content/home, fans across the country are setting their sights on attending the first-ever College Football Championship this January. This means they are looking for affordable travel options to get to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas without waiting until the last minute when prices are sure to surge.
Harnessing its unique, proprietary platform, Forward Market Media is now giving fans the ability to lock in affordable flights on American Airlines to Dallas/Fort Worth that they only need to pay for if their team qualifies to play. The first available reservation will be for a New York to Dallas/Fort Worth flight. Additional flights from various locations across the country will be added based on fan demand.
Here’s how it works: starting August 28, 2014, fans in the New York area can go to http://americanairlines.teamtix.com, to select their favorite team and purchase reservations for flights from New York to Dallas/Fort Worth on American Airlines. If their team qualifies to play in the Championship Game, the fan will be obligated to purchase that airfare at the agreed upon value. If the team they specify does not qualify, the reservation expires and the fan forfeits only the cost of the reservation fee. After purchasing reservations, fans have the option to sell them 24/7 in a highly organized, secure and transparent forward marketplace.
"We are thrilled to be working with the College Football Playoff to give passionate fans unprecedented access to this once-in-a-lifetime event,” notes Rick Harmon, CEO of Forward Market Media. "Having a ticket to the game is only the first step. Fans then must figure out how to get themselves to Texas and this system provides them a way to do that while avoiding the steep costs of flights as the Championship approaches."
The Forward Market is a tested and proven model that has helped thousands of people access the events that matter most to them including the BCS National Championship Game and much more.
