GROUP SALES

Looking for a great way to plan your next company outing, friends & family gathering, or school fundraiser? Come together for big savings on upcoming Cross Insurance Arena events! The Group Sales Manager takes pride in providing professional and courteous service to ensure that everyone in your group has an enjoyable experience. You will receive personalized one-on-one service, discounted tickets, and preferred seating.

We look forward to hosting you!

Why Group Sales?

Cross Insurance Arena family shows, sporting events, and concerts are always more enjoyable with friends! The Group Sales Department has coordinated many outings with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Churches, Sports Teams, Corporate Companies, Schools, Recreation Centers, and local families. A group can truly be made up of anyone. In most cases, it only takes 10 people to receive great discounts! Not only will you receive a discount per ticket, you will also avoid the service charges attributed online. The Group Sales Department is happy to connect one-on-one to reserve seats in the same section so everyone has an enjoyable experience together.

How do I pay for my group order?

Once you have gathered the number of people in your group, call the Group Sales Department (207-791-2235). We will accept one credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, AMEX) right over the phone. Addionally, payment may be made by one check (payable to "Cross Insurance Arena"). There will be a small $5.00 handling fee applied once to the order.

If you group grows after you book your tickets, no worries! We are flexible and are happy to locate seats as close to the original group as possible while still offering the group discounted rate.

How do I receive my tickets?

Tickets will be mailed to you shortly after payment is received. If you would like to pay and pick up your tickets at our office, please call 207-791-2235 to make arrangements in advance. Once tickets are paid, there are no refunds or exchanges. 

Can you accomodate accessible seating requests?

The Group Sales Department can accomodate all members of your group! If you have a group member who will need accessible/wheelchair seating, please inform us with as much advance notice as possible.

Do you have a discount program in place to offer my staff/employees?

The no-cost Corporate Employee Benefit Program is available to companies interested in providing employees with discounts to upcoming events. To do so, the Group Sales Department will activate an exlusive promotional code that can be used by your employees online (ticketmaster.com), over the phone (207-775-3458), or in person at the Trusted Choice Box Office. We will create a PDF flyer to make it easy to share with your employees. This will show the promotional code, intructions on how to use it, and other event information. Communicate this with your employees for the upcoming events and they can purchase when it is convenient for them. No group organization required. It's as simple as that!

Online Example:

 

 

Do you have a fundraising program?

Yes! Fundraising with Cross Insurance Arena events offers the opportunity for friends and families to create memorable experiences all while benefiting your organization. Sports Teams, School PTOs, and local organizations have all seen success when fundraising with these events. It is simple:

  1. You'll receive the tickets at a special discounted price
  2. Sell them up to face value to the group, family, friends, and community
  3. Collect the orders, and submit only the amount for the tickets sold to the Group Sales Department
  4. Keep the difference for your program!
Food & Beverage Options

Groups are eligible to receive discounts on food & beverage by pre-purchasing vouchers (in any quantity) through the Group Sales Department:

$10 Food Voucher - Your choice of Hot Dog, Hamburger, or Chicken; with Fries and Bottled Beverage. (Vouchers are only redeemable at Cross Insurance Arena operated concession stands for the event date/time corresponding with the event tickets purchased. No cash value. Vouchers are not available during the week of the event.)

Complete your event by planning a pre-event party. The CN Brown Landing, Saco Biddeford Savings Hall Of Fame Lounge, and suites can be reserved for any type of celebration from birthday parties to elegant receptions. Contact Group Sales for more information at 207-791-2235

Testimonials

"Lauren, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity for the girls to perform the opening ceremony for the game last night. The girls as well as their family members were over the moon with the experience. You helped make a memory that will last a lifetime for them!"

- Danielle Hileman, Troop 1776

"Lauren - I just want to let you know that our group was very pleased with the seating arrangements you provided for yesterday's performance of STARS ON ICE.  Section F was a great location for viewing the show.  And our handicapped patrons in Group F were equally happy with their seating. I appreciate the professional manner in which you managed our group booking from start to finish.  Thanks for your attention to detail and for your cooperation throughout the pre-event process."

- Jim Keogh, Olde New England Tours

"Lisbon Recreation and Lisbon D.A.R.E. have co-sponsored numerous trips for our community, partnering with Cross Insurance Arena.  Our goal was to provide opportunities to attend some dynamic entertainment events but a low, reasonable cost.  Most recently, we sponsored trips to see Disney on Ice and Harlem Globetrotters. I have worked with Shawn R., from the group sales department, on the last 3 events we have booked at Cross Insurance Arena.  Shawn has always worked hard to provide us with great seats at a great group rate!  Customer Service has been awesome and Shawn R. is not only available by phone or email; but makes himself available in person.  He took the time to introduce himself when I attended one of the events.  This type of personal contact makes it easy for us to partner with Cross Insurance Arena."

- Renee Bernard, Lisbon Police Department/ Lisbon D.A.R.E.

  • In light of COVID-19’s continued impact across the North East region, the @ECHLHockey announced Wednesday that each of the six teams in the North Division - including the @MarinersOfMaine– will be suspending the 2020-2021 ECHL season under the league’s policy for COVID-19. All teams are set to return in the 2021-2022 ECHL season. We take this time to thank the fans for their continued support and look to host the team on home ice next season.
