SeatGeek Continues to Bet Big, Signing Sponsorship Deal With Multi-Media Sports Company Jomboy Media

The partnership includes sponsorship of podcast favorites, like Talkin’ Baseball, The Chris Rose Rotation, and the new media company’s infamous video breakdowns

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SeatGeek, the high-growth technology platform transforming the live event experience for fans, teams, and venues, today announced an extended partnership with leading sports and pop culture multi-media company, Jomboy Media. This engagement highlights SeatGeek’s ability to connect with Gen Z fans and build authentic relationships with industry trailblazers.

“The way we reach consumers today is different to how we did it 10, even five years ago,” said Ian Borthwick, Vice President of Influencer Marketing at SeatGeek. “We took a leap of faith, standing behind new media brands and creators from the start – now, we’re well positioned to continue growing and evolving with today’s consumers. Partnering with creators, like Jomboy, is a significant part of our larger marketing strategy, and a natural fit for SeatGeek as a live entertainment company. We’re authentically reaching and scaling new audiences and future generations to continue growing with a community that craves the excitement of live events.”

In 2019, SeatGeek sought feedback from its community of fans, asking them who they thought should be SeatGeek’s next partner. Fans overwhelmingly responded with their desire to see a collaboration with Jomboy Media – kicking off one of the most influential partnerships within SeatGeek’s influencer program. Today, that relationship has grown into one of SeatGeek’s largest and most successful standalone sports media partnerships, a proof point in SeatGeek’s ability to strategically identify the next major up-and-coming creators. As a part of SeatGeek’s latest deal with Jomboy Media, the company will sponsor fan-favorite shows from JM, including Breakdowns, Talkin’ Baseball, Talkin’ Yanks, and The Chris Rose Rotation.

“SeatGeek has supported me from the very beginning, even before Jomboy Media was who we are today,” said Jimmy O’Brien a.k.a Jomboy, founder of Jomboy Media. “The company has a long track record of working with new media entities, and has a knack for understanding not only what it takes to succeed within the industry, but how to tap into the minds of today’s consumers. The [media] landscape is evolving and SeatGeek knows how to grow with the fans by using smart and forward-looking approaches to collaboration.”

Fan-favorite shows from Jomboy Media, like Talkin’ Baseball and Talkin’ Yanks, can be found on YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Podcasts.
