My family has an indoor sports facility and we use software and run a franchise program from one of the bigger indoor sports companies that have like 6 locations. There was a meeting about what to do during the beginning of the pandemic, and they suggested raising more money from the investors to cover rent. Like that’s even an option for us. We haven’t been able to run leagues (which is where most of our income comes from) since March. Just praying the vaccine rolls out quickly.
This is why for years, even before LiveNation and Ticket Master took over, I would buy merch right from the band’s website or if I went to their live shows I would get it right from their merch table. I still try to, but I don’t get to live shows anywhere near as much as I used to, but if a band or artist releases an album or whatever, I make sure it comes from them.
