TAMPA, FL—(Marketwired – March 06, 2018) – UNATION announces it has partnered with the National Scholastic Athletics Foundation (NSAF) as their new promotion and ticketing company. Utilizing UNATION's desktop and mobile platforms, the NSAF and their members will be able to easily and effectively create, share, and promote events happening in and around their local communities.
“We are excited about what the UNATION platform brings to our organization and to the thousands of high school coaches and event coordinators who need assistance in managing and promoting their events. Discovering events is a big problem within our organization, so we are thrilled to introduce the UNATION platform to our members,” said Jim Spier, Executive Director of the NSAF.
The NSAF was founded in 1990 as a nonprofit, tax–exempt 501 c (3) organization with the mission of supporting high school and junior aged track and field athletes in the US. In addition to creating and conducting numerous events and grant programs, including the New Balance Nationals Indoor and Outdoor High School Track & Field Championships, the organization has created the first ever National High School Track & Field Hall of Fame and will host its inaugural Induction Ceremony on Thursday, March 8th at the prestigious New York Athletic Club in New York City.
Included in the inaugural class of 30 athletes, coaches, and contributors will be such immortals as Jim Ryun, Allyson Felix, Alan Webb, Michael Carter, Mary Decker, Jesse Owens, Bob Mathias, and Renaldo Nehemiah.
“The organization has a deep history that needs to be showcased. It is the foundation of Track and Field at the junior and high school level,” said John Bartoletta, Chief Executive Officer of UNATION.
The UNATION app is free to use, with no limit to the number of public events an event coordinator can create and promote. UNATION's platform allows event coordinators real–time access to their funds, as well as a private administrative section to monitor reports, simplify data collection and manage attendees. At any time, event coordinators can also utilize UNATION's on–demand promotional team for assistance in driving more traffic to their events. As part of the strategic partnership agreement, all NSAF affiliates and partner events will be eligible for discounted premium services around promotion, as well as sponsorship opportunities for all ticketed events.
