SPRINGFIELD, MA – Today, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced a three-year partnership with Ticket Galaxy to become the Official Fan to Fan Marketplace for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. The partnership was facilitated by IMG College, the Basketball Hall of Fame’s sports marketing partner for collegiate events.

Events include the Tip-Off Tournament, Women's Holiday Showcase and Men's Holiday Showcase at Mohegan Sun Arena, as well as Hoophall Miami at AmericanAirlines Arena and the Basketball Hall of Fame Classic at STAPLES Center.  

“As we continue to elevate our portfolio of events, we’re excited to partner with Ticket Galaxy to provide a streamlined ticketing process for our fans,” said John L. Doleva, President and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame. “Through our partnership with IMG, we will continue to explore ways to provide top-notch, memorable experiences for student-athletes and fans from coast to coast.”
