February 12, 2018 - United Soccer League (USL) - Penn FC News Release

Harrisburg, PA - Harrisburg, PA - Penn FC announced on Monday that Anthony Rios will serve as the club's Director of Ticket Sales in 2018. Rios will oversee and manage all aspects of Penn FC ticket sales and provide support to the Director of Marketing and the Director of Corporate Partnerships.

Rios joins the club after holding several roles with Major League Soccer club D.C. United and assisting in various club successes over the years. With D.C. United, Rios developed the renewal campaigns for the team's stadium, Audi Field, and launched the premium and non-premium seating options along with their club benefits.

Rios brings a strong member focus to Penn FC in its inaugural season. He was a proud member of D.C. United's supporter council, helping to create an amazing experience for the supporter groups and the general fan base at Audi Field. Rios was instrumental on United's sales and service team, leading them to successfully retain 85 percent or more of their membership base from 2015-17. His efforts earned MLS Club Executive Awards during those three years.

Rios started his career as a sales trainee at the MLS National Sales Center after graduating from Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania in 2009. The St. Cloud, Florida native played soccer for the Bald Eagles from 2007-09 at LHU.

Rios's relationship-first mentality helped build D.C. United's fan base and he brings that same enthusiasm to Penn FC.

"The future is bright here at Penn FC and I'm excited to help build this organization and make it a global brand," Rios said. "With the leadership of George Altirs, Eric Pettis, Tim Schulz and many others, we can accomplish something amazing here in the capital of Pennsylvania."

Rios is building a sales team dedicated to the fan experience and introducing new seating opportunities. To learn more about some of these exciting options visit www.pennfc.com/premium-seating. For all 2018 Penn FC ticket inquiries, contact Anthony Rios at arios@pennfc.com or 717.441.4625.
