COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
Mizzou Athletics launched a one-of-a-kind ticket program where both students and athletes can earn a profit on Friday afternoon.
The new initiative will allow students to make money selling single-game tickets to any sporting event on campus. Students who sign up will earn 20 percent commission on any ticket sold. The program includes all sports on Mizzou's campus including football, men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball, and more.
"Our students are great ambassadors for Mizzou," Athletic Director Desiree Reed-Francois said in a press release. "We look forward to piloting this entrepreneurial opportunity and extending the reach of our sales team. The energy created when our venues are packed is contagious and we are always looking for ways tot help our student-athletes and provide that great gameday experience at all of our home contests."
Students and athletes can sign up for the program online. Once signed up, the university will provide students with a unique link which they can then share via social media, text message, or email to begin selling tickets. The only qualification is current enrollment at Mizzou.
The Tigers will kick off the 2022 football season with the team's first night game since 2019 on Sept. 1 at Faurot Field against Louisiana Tech.
