West Virginia University Selects Anthony Travel For Athletic Travel Services
Anthony Travel, the nationally recognized and award-winning leader in collegiate sports travel management, announced a new multi-year partnership with West Virginia Athletics as its preferred travel provider. Anthony Travel will provide comprehensive travel services for the WVU Athletic Department.
“Anthony Travel is one of the leaders in collegiate athletic travel, and we are looking forward to working with them,” Director of Athletics Shane Lyons said. “Our athletic teams and department staff spend a great amount of time on the road, and I believe this new partnership will not only enhance our travel efforts, but be more effective and provide additional options for our teams.”
As part of the partnership, West Virginia Athletics will benefit from an Anthony Travel account manager dedicated exclusively to WVU Athletic Department travel management needs, including scheduled air, charter air, hotel accommodations, ground transportation, international team tours, and other services as requested. The Anthony Travel account manager will be based onsite in the West Virginia Athletic Department.
“We are thrilled to begin our relationship as West Virginia’s travel partner,” said John Anthony, President and CEO of Anthony Travel. “With our experience in the Big 12 Conference we are able to provide travel solutions and savings that will benefit WVU and the storied tradition of the Mountaineers. For travel on ‘Country Roads’ or in the air, we look forward to working with the coaches, student-athletes and staff and sharing our best practices and consolidated services.”
In addition to West Virginia University, Anthony Travel serves as the official travel partner for five other universities in the Big 12 Conference: Baylor University, Iowa State University, University of Kansas, Texas Tech University and University of Texas at Austin.
