Former National Football League (NFL) quarterback Drew Brees has invested in Sports Illustrated Tickets, a primary and secondary ticketing marketplace.

Brees spent the majority of his career playing for the New Orleans Saints, before eventually retiring after the 2020 season.

Following the 2024-25 schedule reveal last week, fans can now purchase tickets to every NFL game via SI Tickets.

“We are honoured to welcome Drew Brees to the Sports Illustrated Tickets family,” said David Lane, chief executive of Sports Illustrated Tickets.

“His unparalleled leadership, integrity, and passion for innovation make him an invaluable addition to our team. At Sports Illustrated Tickets, we remain committed to delivering a transparent, fan-first ticket-buying experience with zero fees on seats to over 250,000 sports, concerts and theater events.

“This means customers pay only the price they see on tickets to every single NFL game. Drew shares our philosophy of putting fans first, and his expertise and unmatched ability to connect will help us continue to build meaningful relationships with passionate football fans around the world.”

Backed by sports magazine Sports Illustrated, SI Tickets last year announced its entry into the primary ticketing market through the launch of a new self-service event management and platform that incorporates NFT and non-NFT tickets solutions.

Brees added: “When I was presented with the opportunity to join the Sports Illustrated Tickets team, I simply couldn’t pass it up. For 70 years, Sports Illustrated has been the most trusted name in sports and an iconic brand that has meant so much to me and to so many sports fans globally.

“Appearing on the cover of the magazine with my son after winning the Super Bowl was truly special, and now having the chance to become a part of the future of the brand – particularly what Sports Illustrated Tickets is doing to transform the live event ticketing industry – is truly a once-in-a-lifetime partnership I’m proud to personally invest in.”
