Service provides baseball fans opportunity to maximize viewing experience
Las Vegas – The Las Vegas Aviators, Triple-A baseball Affiliate of the Oakland A’s, and LuvSeats have established a partnership designating Las Vegas-based LuvSeats LLC as the team’s official and exclusive In-Game Seat Exchange platform to perform during-the-game “Third Market” transactions.
The LuvSeats In-Game Seat Exchange is a community collective of members who subscribe to a user-friendly social marketplace to buy and sell unsold seats, unwanted seats, no-show seats, and abandoned seats. This innovative format allows for transactions to be processed easily, securely and at the best rates. Utilizing Facebook integration, the LuvSeats model enables fans to leave early and post their seat for sale to other members already in attendance who want to move closer to their friends, or closer to the action to move legitimately.
“The Aviators and Howard Hughes Corporation are a world-class organization with a fantastic ballpark and operations team. We are truly blessed to join them in launching the LuvSeats In-Game Seat Exchange in the entertainment capital of the World,” said LuvSeats Co-Founder & CEO Darcy Silver. “We look forward to working with the Las Vegas community, season ticket holders and super fans joining us in this journey that will revolutionize the sports and live entertainment industry.”
The partnership announcement between the Las Vegas Aviators and LuvSeats comes at a fantastic time as the team recently announced their 2021 schedule. The team reached record attendance for the league during its inaugural season at the Las Vegas Ballpark, averaging nearly 10,000 attendees per game. The Las Vegas Ballpark has proved to be a great attraction in Downtown Summerlin featuring a wide range of seating options including 22 suites, club seats, berm seating, party zones and decks, picnic tables, kids’ zone, bars and a pool beyond the outfield wall. The Las Vegas Ballpark is also home to a one-of-a-kind LED video display which is top 25 in size for baseball in North America.
“The Aviators are excited to provide our fans with the newest and most innovative ticket options in the league and LuvSeats adds the needed frictionless seating flexibility said Aviators President/COO Don Logan, we look forward to welcoming fans back to Las Vegas Ballpark in May.”
The Las Vegas Aviators, who are the Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, are members of the Pacific Coast League. The Aviators play at Las Vegas Ballpark, a 10,000 seat stadium that opened in 2019.
