Professional rugby, one of the world’s most popular sports, is gaining traction in the United States, with Major League Rugby (MLR) leading the charge. Founded in 2017, this young league has already made a significant impact nationwide, solidifying rugby’s status as the newest major league sport in America.
NOLA Gold, representing the vibrant city of New Orleans, is more than just a sports team; it’s a pillar of the local community and a sporting juggernaut. Competing at the highest level in the United States, NOLA Gold has captured the hearts of fans in the Deep South.
Of the 13 MLR teams, The New Orleans Gold (NOLA Gold) will be the first to uplevel its ticketing operations with our modern unified commerce technology. As the high adrenaline game continues to win hearts and minds here in the United States, NOLA Gold aims to captivate fans from the very first interaction.
“We are thrilled to partner with a company that shares our passion for innovation,” said Tim Falcon, NOLA Gold Owner and Co-Founder. “Tixr is built by experts committed to working with us to create fan experiences that are truly the best in the world. NOLA fans deserve the best experience, and that’s what we are building with Tixr.”
Leveraging its 10,000-seat stadium, The Shrine on Airline, and world-class talent, NOLA Gold isn’t just about sports. It provides jobs, revenue, and serves as a hub for young rugby athletes and fans alike in the greater New Orleans metro area.
The club is also committed to growing the sport and making it accessible to the local community, offering affordable ticket options, fostering youth rugby in the region, and actively engaging with at-risk youth through philanthropic initiatives. Their white and gold team colors pay homage to the rich French-American culture integral to the city’s identity.
At Tixr, we seek out partners who are intentional about delivering excellence, both on and off the pitch, field, and court, and we’re inspired by NOLA Gold’s dedication to growing the game of rugby and driving MLR forward. NOLA Gold’s unwavering commitment to developing local, national, and international talent to a world-class level of play and professionalism aligns seamlessly with our mission to redefine the fan experience.
