The Chicago Fire aimed to increase both single game and season ticket sales for the upcoming season, with a special interest in reaching previously untapped groups.


Using insights from their customer data, we were able to find new individuals with a high likelihood of becoming a fan. We then executed people-based campaigns designed to increase conversions and drive revenue.
