Lavalle Stadium, Pritchard Gymnasium, the new Stony Brook Arena (coming Fall 2014), and other select athletic facilities. Flash Seats, the patented Veritix digital ticketing system, will be available as a digital entry method for fans and as a secondary marketplace for tickets. Stony Brook University, a member of the America East and CAA Football conferences, selected the Veritix system because it was looking for a ticketing and business platform to more effectively manage its ticketing operations. Set to move into the $21.1 million renovated Stony Brook Arena in 2014, the Athletics Department sought a dynamic ticketing and business platform that would cater to Seawolves students, fans and alumni. Veritix’s fan relationship solutions were the key factor in Stony Brook’s decision to partner with Veritix. “We believe the Veritix ticketing and business platform will provide our fans with a flexible and convenient ticketing experience,” said Stony Brook Director of Athletics Jim Fiore. “Their innovative revenue generating initiatives and fan relationship tools will assist our athletics department in tracking and managing information about our alumni and community members, two critically important components of our growing fan base.” For Veritix, Stony Brook University is another important collegiate partner in a growing list of colleges and universities using the Veritix system.
