Ticket Sales Executive

We want a sales manager looking to jump start their career in the sports world. We need a ticket sales executive to develop group, single game, and season ticket sales strategies and drive ticket revenue for the Fargo Force.

You’ll help us by calling and meeting with top company officials and group leaders and selling them on the benefits of season tickets or group outings with the Fargo Force using a full-menu marketing approach.

To become a superstar with teams, you need to first know that it all starts with tickets.

Tickets are the lifeblood of sports. Once you learn tickets – truly learn how to market tickets-then it’s on to sponsorships. Learn both, and you’ve got the right ticket to run teams.

Selling Tickets. You’ll be considered a sales executive and will be making sales calls to group organizations (schools, youth hockey teams, churches, etc.) and the average sports fan. The position will be selling season tickets, group tickets and/or small ticket packages.

Do you want to be a superstar in sports business? That’s the first qualification. If you answered yes, then answer two more questions: 1) do you have a strong work ethic and 2) do you have a desire to learn and excel?

You should have strong communication skills (you have to like to talk to people) and a willingness to listen and learn. The ideal candidate should also have a passion for working in sales. Experience in the sports industry a plus.

This is a base salary plus commission position with greater reward for greater performance. Full benefits package including health insurance, 401(k), paid time off, and more.
