Gamecock Athletic Department’s Travel Needs to be Managed by Premiere Global Sports

Premiere Global Sports’ College Division (PGS - College), has been selected by the University of South Carolina’s Department of Athletics as its provider and manager of day-to-day travel services for their athletics department staff, teams and coaches.

“Premiere, one of the leading providers of sports travel services in the college market, provides us the lowest costs and the best service options available” said Jeff Tallant, CFO of University of South Carolina Athletics. “We look forward to this partnership and the opportunity to improve the efficiency of our travel as a department.”

At South Carolina, PGS – College will manage travel logistics for individuals and teams within the athletic department. This will include team travel to away games, individual travel for coaches on business and recruiting trips and individual travel for athletics administration. By providing these travel solutions for South Carolina teams and administrators, PGS - College will create a new level of synergy leading to increased financial savings and improved reporting for all of the department’s travel needs.

“We are looking forward to working closely with the Gamecocks Department of Athletics to fulfill their athletic department’s daily travel needs,” said Joe Bennett, President and CEO of Premiere Global Sports. “We strive to provide university partners with value added, cost-effective travel options while maintaining the highest quality in service”, said Bennett.

With more than 50 years of experience in providing group travel solutions for universities around their college football and basketball away games, last year PGS expanded its product and service offerings for its university partners by acquiring TMP Sports. This acquisition allows the college division to provide day-to-day travel management services for individuals and teams, including flight, hotel accommodations and rental car bookings as well as charter flights and motor coach transportation for teams.
