The University of Mississippi Renews Partnership With Paciolan

Extends Digital Ticketing for Football and Baseball

IRVINE, CA and UNIVERSITY, MS--(Marketwire - October 27, 2010) -  Paciolan, the leading provider of ticketing, marketing and fundraising solutions in college athletics, announced today that The University Mississippi (Ole Miss) has renewed its partnership with the company. Already enabled for students and club-level seating for football, and fully implemented for basketball, Ole Miss will now extend Paciolan's Access Management and digital ticketing system stadium-wide for both football and baseball starting with the 2010-11 season. Ole Miss fans will be able to go online to purchase tickets and print their tickets at home, which helps decrease will call and wait times.

"No one can compete with the partnership Paciolan provides us," said Sans Russell, senior associate athletics director for The University of Mississippi. "With Paciolan, we get the ultimate in ticketing solutions paired with the best services and support. We couldn't be happier to be renewing our commitment with them."

This year, Ole Miss sold 100 percent of their student football tickets online and delivered them to student ID cards -- 5,500 seats. Additionally, Ole Miss delivered 2,000 all sports passes for football, basketball and baseball to student ID cards for a total of 7,500 football season tickets. The online ticketing process eliminates wait times for students who no longer will miss classes because they're waiting in long lines to purchase or pick up tickets.

Paciolan's integrated ticketing and fundraising solutions enable Ole Miss Athletics to organize the ticket office and UMAA Foundation so that the two entities work closely together. "Having our ticketing and fundraising under one umbrella has really helped us to streamline processes, run things more efficiently, and time things better," continued Russell.

"We're excited to be extending our Digital Ticketing system to The University of Mississippi's football and baseball fans," said Dave Butler, chief executive officer of Paciolan. "Ole Miss has been a great partner, and we look forward to continuing to provide them with the best ticketing, marketing and fundraising solutions to meet their growing needs."
