The Power of the One-Fan-Profile Provides the Ultimate Fan-Friendly Ticketing Solution

PLAINVIEW, NY and FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwire - Mar 9, 2012) - NeuLion, Inc. (TSX: NLN), the primary provider of ticketing and donor management applications for college athletics, today announced a new multi-year partnership with Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) to provide a campus-wide ticketing platform.
