Sellers must be team players and able to work in a fast-paced environment, interacting with thousands of fans each game. Excellent communication skills, experience in sales and money management is strongly preferred. This is a great part-time job for someone eager to break into the industry and gain experience in sales and working with a non-profit agency, or for motivated individuals looking for a second job in sports.
