PSUFootballTransport Gets You to The Game

There is no doubt that this year’s football schedule away from Beaver Stadium may be one of the best in recent times. The Nittany Lions will invade Alabama, Iowa and Ohio State, all teams ranked in the top-10 in preseason polls. Going to these games would be a blast, but it’s a huge burden to plan one trip of these proportions, let alone three of them.

That is where Penn State student Brett Fisher comes in.

Fisher, an MBA student in the Smeal College of Business, has started the organization PSUFootballTransport, which will provide transportation and lodging to arguably Penn State’s three biggest games of the year. As president of the Penn State Ski Club last year, he set up similar trips to Canada, Vermont and Colorado. He now wants to help students see how “other schools do game-day.”

Jon Tornetta and David Adewumi of Innoblue are informally helping Brett get his venture started. They have assisted  by consulting, and have directed him towards those who will help him with his business plan and strategy. Once things get rolling, they may also play a role in the marketing process.

PSUFootballTransport is now taking $100 deposits to reserve spots on the bus, with full payment being due on different dates for the three games. Fares for the Alabama and Iowa games are both $249, (the trip to Columbus will cost you $189) and include two nights lodging, roundtrip motorcoach transportation, breakfast and driver gratuities. Plans for tailgating are also in the process. If you need more information, head over to www.psufootballtransport.com.
