The Minnesota Timberwolves and ReplyBuy, Inc. today announced a new partnership that enables Wolves fans to instantly purchase and receive game tickets via text message. The new program called WolvesTix Now, provides fans with access to exclusive VIP seating opportunities, limited-time ticket offers and promotions for Wolves games.
WolvesTix Now subscribers are the first to receive notifications of special offers and last-minute seat releases within a few days or even a few hours of the game. To take advantage of an offer, the user just needs to respond with a quick text message and the tickets are automatically purchased and delivered to their mobile phone. The faster a fan responds to the ticket offer text message, the better their seat location is.
WolvesTix Now also offers no fee tickets that are only available through the Timberwolves.
Fans can join WolvesTix through ReplyBuy by visiting www.replybuy.com/timberwolves to set up a secure account and sign up for notifications.
“Over the past few years, we’ve seen a significant increase in the number of fans accessing our team assets with mobile devices. We’re excited to roll out this new program and give these fans greater accessibility and convenience to purchase tickets while on the go,” said Ryan Tanke, Timberwolves senior vice president and chief revenue officer.
“We’re proud to support the new Timberwolves initiative making it faster and more convenient for their fans to instantly purchase great tickets,” said ReplyBuy CEO and Founder Josh Manley. “We live in a world where fans want access, speed and simplicity. WolvesTix Now delivers on all three key ingredients.”
The program is another step the Wolves have taken to accommodate the continued growth of mobile use among fans. Recently the team launched a new mobile app and re-designed its website to be optimized for mobile viewing.
ReplyBuy is a platform that enables teams, clubs and venues to connect in real-time with their fans via mobile and execute a ticket purchase (to a game or event) with a simple reply text message. It’s a universal solution which creates an intuitive, friction-free purchasing experience for the fan.
