Texas Christian University Selects Anthony Travel For Athletic Travel Management
Anthony Travel, the nationally recognized and award-winning leader in collegiate sports travel management, announced a new multi-year partnership with TCU Athletics as its travel service provider. Anthony Travel will be responsible for comprehensive travel services for the TCU Athletics Department, including scheduled air, charter air, hotel accommodations, ground transportation, international team tours, and other services as requested.
“When we started looking for a partner to handle all of our travel needs for the entire athletics department, it quickly became apparent that Anthony Travel is best-in-class in this space,” said TCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Chris Del Conte. “We are excited to welcome Anthony Travel to the Horned Frogs family and to provide this level of quality travel services for our coaches and their teams.”
As part of the partnership, TCU Athletics will benefit from two on-site account managers dedicated exclusively to the TCU Athletics Department travel management needs. Anthony Travel has partnered with the TCU Alumni Association since 2002 and been their Official Bowl Travel Provider since 2009, most notably servicing the 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, 2011 Rose Bowl and 2014 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.
“I’ve been cheering for TCU since attending their games and playing on their courts as a local kid. Having the chance now to work for them and help further their success is a dream come true,” said John Anthony, President and CEO of Anthony Travel. “Our experience in the Big 12 Conference and across the country will lend itself to providing TCU with innovative travel solutions and savings that will aid their efforts to win championships.”
In addition to Texas Christian University, Anthony Travel serves as the official travel partner for six other universities in the Big 12 Conference: Baylor University, Iowa State University, University of Kansas, Texas Tech University, University of Texas at Austin, and West Virginia University. Anthony Travel is also the year-round travel partner for more than 70 athletic departments nationwide.
