October 23, 2018 – Detroit, MI | Passage is excited to announce our partnership with the National League of Professional Futsal (NLPF), which showcases North America’s highest level of professional futsal.
For those who are new to the sport, futsal is a fast-paced and highly entertaining variation on association football a.k.a. soccer. Two teams of five players each compete on a hard indoor court; the size of the court and the ball itself encourage intricate movements and skillful techniques that result in a higher scoring match than traditional soccer.
As part of this new partnership, Passage is providing the NLPF with a custom online portal, available to all of the futsal teams in the league. Each team will be able to personalize the look and feel of their portal, which can handle ticket sales, merchandise and concessions, both online and at the door on match day. The underlying technology gives them all the same level of world-class reporting and top-of-the-line support that Passage is known for.
“Our partnership with Passage will create a more efficient and simple mobile ticketing system across NLPF events for all fans and local communities. As the NLPF continues to grow, its important for the league to create an infrastructure to create a top tier experience for all attendees,” said Danny Villagran, NLPF League Director.
The NLPF currently has 12 teams and is known for bringing credibility, clarity, and consistency to the sport as futsal continues to grow in popularity across the country.
“The NLPF is at the forefront of futsal programs in the U.S.,” said Alex Linebrink, CEO of Passage. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with them to help ensure a consistently great ticketing experience for fans and teams as the league continues to expand.”
The Passage platform will be live across all NLPF league and teams’ events for the upcoming 2018-19 season, which will begin in November.
Passage, Inc. powers ticketing and payments for events and attractions with all-in-one technology that allows organizers to take control of all their ticket, merchandise, and concession sales both online and at-the-door, all while reaching more fans and making more money.
Since 2014, Passage has completed $10’s of millions in ticket and product sales for thousands of events around the world. For more information visit gopassage.com.
