Hornets Team with ReplyBuy to Enable Instant Mobile Purchasing For Fans

December 15, 2015 – The Charlotte Hornets and ReplyBuy, Inc., today announced a new partnership that enables Hornets fans to instantly purchase and receive game tickets via text message. The new program, called Hornets Fast Pass, provides fans access to exclusive VIP seating opportunities, limited-time ticket offers and promotions for Hornets games.

Patrons who register for the program will receive personalized notifications when tickets become available, enabling them to purchase tickets on-demand in a matter of seconds via text message. The faster fans respond, the better their seat locations will be. Electronic tickets will be delivered to a buyer’s phone instantly upon purchase and can be scanned at the arena.

Fans can join Hornets Fast Pass by visiting replybuy.com/hornets/welcome to set up a secure account and sign up for notifications.

“We are always looking for ways to enhance the ticket-buying experience and make it easier for our fans,” said Hornets Executive Vice President and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer Pete Guelli.  “We are excited to partner with ReplyBuy to offer a new, convenient way to purchase tickets.”

"We're extremely excited to partner with the Hornets; the driving force behind this was to simplify the entire experience to make buying tickets faster, easier and fun for fans,” said ReplyBuy CEO Josh Manley. “The Hornets realize the value of expediting the buying process to deliver instant fan gratification in the ticket purchasing process."

The Hornets are the 11th NBA team to partner with ReplyBuy, which currently has agreements with over 70 professional sports teams, venues and colleges.
