Titans investigating ‘irregularities’ in ticket sales

 The Tennessee Titans have hired outside investigators to review “irregularities” in ticket sales discovered during a team audit.

The Titans released a statement Monday night saying some tickets sold during the 2014 season were “falsely designated as military comps on an internal report.” The team did not say how many tickets were sold, or how much money was lost or is unaccounted for. The team owes $3 of each ticket sold to the Metro Nashville Sports Authority for improvements at the stadium.

The statement says the team has informed the NFL and Metro Nashville’s finance officials and sports authority. The Titans also hired independent accounting professionals to further audit the team while restructuring the ticket office, firing at least two people in that department. Another executive also resigned.
