Grand Forks, North Dakota – Ralph Engelstad Arena, a support organization for the University of North Dakota’s (UND) Department of Athletics, and Taymar Sales U. today announced a new multi-year agreement for Taymar to manage outbound ticket sales for UND Athletics.

“We are excited to add the experience and expertise that Taymar brings to our external team at UND Athletics,” said UND Deputy Athletics Director Erik Martinson. “Working alongside our ticket operations teammates at the Ralph, I am really excited to announce this investment and commitment to improving our outbound ticket sales efforts. I look forward to working with Taymar to maximize the opportunity for the benefit of our great fans.”

“We are thrilled to work for Erik and Jody Hodgson alongside their team at UND Athletics and Ralph Engelstad Arena,” said Taymar President Joe Rickert. “From our early conversations, we could feel the energy and passion that surrounds this incredible athletics program, and we are excited to arrive in Grand Forks to start serving Fighting Hawks fans.”

The University of North Dakota is the first institution from the Summit League to sign with Taymar and represents one of 18 current clients for the company, which started in June 2019. North Dakota’s football program competes in the Missouri Valley Football Conference while North Dakota’s 8-time Division 1 National Championship hockey program competes in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference. The long history of team success has resulted in national recognition for the well over 1,500 UND student-athletes who have garnered All-America honors.

“The University of North Dakota is a special place with a great school spirit and support of athletics,” said Taymar Founder/CEO Mark Dyer. “Going to Grand Forks represents another move westward for our company and we are very excited to get started.”
