Following the full 2024-25 schedule release unveiled Wednesday night on NFL Network, fans can now purchase seats to every NFL game at SITickets.com and will enjoy a completely transparent purchasing experience, paying only the price they see listed on the site with zero fees.

A household name both on and off the field, Brees solidified his legacy as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history during a 20-year career primarily playing for New Orleans, where he led the club to its sole Super Bowl victory en route to being named the game's most valuable player following the 2009 regular season. One of the most iconic Sports Illustrated covers of all-time featured Brees lifting his son over his head with confetti flying during the on-field celebration immediately after the championship game.

"We are honored to welcome Drew Brees to the Sports Illustrated Tickets family," said David Lane, CEO, 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."

"When I was presented with the opportunity to join the Sports Illustrated Tickets team, I simply couldn't pass it up," said Brees. "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."

Throughout his illustrious career, Brees consistently demonstrated his dedication to success, teamwork, innovation and growth - values that closely align with Sports Illustrated Tickets' mission and vision. Brees plans to play an active role within the company, including providing strategic business counsel, serving as spokesperson and brand ambassador and participating in various marketing initiatives.
