Students at St. Francis College can now be alerted by text message to get last minute tickets to events at the Barclays Center.
The college now has a partnership with the venue to give students access to the The Barclays Center College Pass, Dean Jose Rodriguez and VP for Development Thomas Flood announced today.
“Through a partnership with the Barclay’s Center, we are proud to share news of the Barclays Center College Pass, a unique ticketing platform for college students,” Rodriguez and Flood said in a joint statement.
When students sign up, they will receive text updates for different low-price events happening at the venue.
College students are one click away from the conviencence and pricepoint of a dream Barclays Center visit.
“It is our pleasure to work side-by-side with the Barclay’s Center on community-building and philanthropic-driven platforms, and to share news of this special offer with each and every student,” Rodriguez and Flood added.
The program was started in an effort to get rid of unsold tickets.
The Barclays Center’s exclusive offers are now available for St. Francis students. Check your SFC email for the link to sign up, and stay tuned for subsequent offers from the website.
Upcoming events include Florence & the Machine, Maxwell, Nas, and Def Leppard.
The first 100 St. Francis sudents who sign up will be entered into a drawing to win tickets to a February Brooklyn Nets or New York Islanders game.
