Chris Gallagher

Chief Revenue Officer

Orlando City SC

Now in just its fourth season of existence, Orlando City SC has, under Gallagher’s guidance, firmly established itself as one of MLS’s annual leaders in ticket sales and attendance, as the club ranks fifth in the latter category through June 10 after finishing fourth in 2017. But Gallagher’s technological push for the club’s ticketing has arguably been even more impactful, as Orlando City was one of the leading early adopters of Ticketmaster’s Presence system, a move that has yielded vast amounts of data and the identification of new fans while decreasing fraud and providing a boost in the development of identity-based ticketing.
