2020/21 CHAMPIONS – MELBOURNE ACES
North Wollongong, Australia – Monday, February 15th 2021, the Australian Baseball League (ABL) 2020/21 season has come to an unprecedented, yet successful end during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tickets.com congratulates the 2020/21 Claxton Shield Championship winners, the Melbourne Aces.
The ABL began doing business with Tickets.com during the World Baseball Classic Qualifier in 2016, and the pair signed a league deal shortly thereafter. In 2020, the ABL renewed a 5-year deal with Tickets.com. The ABL utilises Tickets.com’s ProVenue® suite of products and services offerings, including the administrative support in creating events on behalf of the participating teams, provided by Tickets.com staff.
“Unlike other ticketing platforms, Tickets.com is willing to step up to the plate and offer more kinds of customer service experiences to meet the unique needs of each client.” Shane Tonkin, GM Commercial & Marketing, Australian Baseball League.
With modified conditions throughout the 2020/21 season, Tickets.com worked with the teams to ensure that there was a solution for all of the curveballs this unpredictable season threw. With sudden changes in border closures due to COVID restrictions, cancelled games, and changes in opponents, Tickets.com and ABL were covering all bases throughout the season.
“At each turn, we adapted to the event changes by creating, removing, adjusting, and cancelling as needed. We automated refunds so that cancelled games were processed seamlessly. This allowed the ABL to offer patrons the option to have refunds added as a credit for redemption in-house or online for their next purchase. ” Hayley Dobbs, General Manager Tickets.com Asia Pacific.
Despite the fluid situation, another successful season has come to an end. Rollovers for Season Memberships and Auto Memberships Renewals are underway for the 2021/22 season, and patrons can lock in their preferred seats in advance.
“We look forward to working with ABL over the coming seasons” Hayley Dobbs, General Manager Tickets.com Asia Pacific
