DETROIT, MICHIGAN -- Passage Sports, a cutting-edge payments and customer engagement engine, and the Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL), the leading amateur and minor league indoor soccer league in North America, announced today a new partnership which names Passage as the Official Ticketing Provider of the PASL.
As part of this partnership, Passage Sports is kicking off a custom PASL ticketing portal, available to all PASL teams. Each team will be able to personalize the look and feel of their Passage Sports portal, which will handle ticket sales, merchandise, and concessions, both online and at the door on match day.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the PASL,” said Alex Linebrink, CEO of Passage Sports. “The league’s commitment to fostering a thriving soccer community is fueling the sport's growth across the country. Our team is delighted to support their vision by simplifying the ticketing process so PASL teams can focus on delivering a great fan experience on gameday.”
This season marks a significant milestone as the PASL is transitioning to new leadership and has launched a revamped development system designed to send players to international opportunities for its 25th anniversary. The PASL is now being managed by the prominent management company JosVon Holdings led by its managing partner Devon Joslin.
Renewing its commitment to excellence in the 25th season of an Open division, they are excited to expand into a Men's and Women's Premier division for the 2023-2024 season. Men's Premier offers a unique opportunity for players to be scouted by the USAMF team and MASL 1. The Women's Premier division is the highest level of Women's professional arena soccer in North America and provides direct access to the USAMF team.
"My team and I at the PASL are excited to partner with Passage for our milestone 25th season." Said Devon Joslin, who will be serving as PASL Commissioner for the 2023-2024 season. "I believe operational excellence lies in the minutiae. I thoroughly evaluate every potential PASL partner for value, accessibility, and scalability at the team level. Passage is a great tool for teams to expand their audience, increase revenue, and meet the dynamic needs of fans for an entertaining in-game experience."
The decision to partner with Passage came, in part, because of the unique set of features offered by Passage Sports, designed to help sports teams reach more fans and grow their revenue. Teams can take advantage of season passes, assigned seating, group sales, fan subscriptions, and even NFT digital collectibles to meet the needs and preferences of their fans.
“We see so many opportunities for growth and expansion on the horizon, and we're excited to be part of that,” said Linebrink. “We look forward to growing together with the PASL and making the sport of soccer more accessible to fans and players nationwide.”
The PASL ticketing portal will be available soon to all PASL teams, and fans will be able to purchase tickets in the coming weeks. Tickets to PASL matches will be available at tickets.arenaleague.com.
