We are also happy to welcome Etix and their participation in our Internship Program which will further our commitment to serve the youth of our state.”
Founded in 2000, Etix is an international, web-based ticketing service provider, processing more than 55 million tickets per year in 40 countries. As the largest independent ticketing company in North America, Etix provides flexible and secure ticketing solutions, digital marketing services, and robust e-commerce fulfillment.

In addition to becoming a sponsorship partner with the fastest growing collegiate league in the country, Etix has committed to sponsoring ONSL High School Internship Program. The Internship Program began in 2022 at the Sandhills Bogeys field located at Sandhills Community College in Southern Pines. The students were on loan from Pinecrest High School and The O’Neal School both located in Southern Pines. The program offered a hands-on approach to all of the jobs within the Sports Management field including ticketing, customer service, promotions, media, ballpark maintenance, sales, and community relations.
The High School Internship Program was the brainchild of ONSL Director of Community Relations, Julie Borshak who stated, “The partnership with Etix will allow the High School students to gain practical experience with the Etix advanced ticketing platform. The students will have one more marketable skill to put on their resumes at the end of the 2023 season as we introduce another generation to the exciting careers in Sport Management." Etix has committed to providing training to all student interns and job shadowing opportunities to those who are interested as the program expands to all fifteen teams in the league. Aaron Bare, Chief Marketing Officer, Etix & Rockhouse Partners said of the new partnership, “At Etix, we're very proud of our North Carolina roots. It is great that The Old North State Baseball League is working to give valuable learning opportunities to young people interested in baseball and sports entertainment, and we're excited to partner in this experience for youth across our state.”
