Get inspired by Cory Dolich and Stefan Van Hoof during ESSMA Spotlight!

One of the reasons to join our online ESSMA Spotlight is our vast variety of industry speakers and interesting stories to keep inspiring you. Below we highlight two inspiring cases which will be presented during ESSMA Spotlight.

How the local culture contributed to a rapidly growing fanbase at Portland Timbers

Cory Dolich - Senior Vice President of Business Operations & Marketing at Portland Timbers - will share insights on fan experience highlights at Providence Park and how they have been building their fanbase. Whereas most European clubs have a lot of history and club traditions, most MLS clubs have to start from scratch which can be challenging at times. However, Portland Timbers are a success story and are experiencing a steep growth in popularity. The club is supporting this growth by engaging with the local community and creating their own traditions such as their mascot Timber Joey sawing a log of wood after each goal.

Blockchain technology: a solution for scalping? 

Stefan Van Hoof - Head of Ticketing and Fan Relations at KNVB - will elaborate on the first results of their ticketing blockchain pilot project to better know who is in the stadium and to combat counterfeits. KNVB used a small sample size during The Netherlands - Estonia to test the effectiveness of a blockchain ticketing system.
