Owls Basketball Groupon Offer

The Owls have a Groupon offer for 2 tickets to either the 2/9 or 2/23 games.  Pretty good deal.  2 seats for $13 total.  Here's the link:

I totally disagree, I think it is the out of the box (hate the saying but it fits) that we need around FAU marketing.

I was watching the end of the Miami game last night against Maryland and they desperately need to sell some groupon tickets to get people to the game.  Until any venue is consistently full you need to use differnet and effective marketing .

GO OWLS!

Embarrassing?!?  Not in any way.

You haven't been paying attention.  Pro teams are using Groupon to sell tickets.  The Pirates, D-Backs, and White Sox all used Groupon to sell tickets last year and you are only going to see more teams use Groupon and other sites like them to move tickets.  Major concert tours are using it too.  Britney Spears just recently used Groupon on her last tour to sell tickets.

I think it's a great idea! It's a great marketing idea and if it gets butts in the seats that's all that matters. I use groupon for things all the time. In fact there's a deal on there now for Brewzzi's in boca. $12 for $24 for food and drinks. You can go to Brewzzi's get a drink, have some dinner and then go to the game all for under $30

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

+1. The Groupon idea is inspired marketing, IMO, and I would say that for any team that did it… even FIU.

I know many people who use Groupon deals for things they wouldn't ordinarily do, you know, "Normally I wouldn't even consider parasailing but hey, this is a good deal."
