Future Ticketing is expanding its footprint into English rugby with the signing of multi-year ticketing partnership agreements with Jersey Reds and Coventry Rugby commencing with the new 2019-2020 season.
The move into English rugby follows from Future Ticketing’s successful on-going partnership with Connacht Rugby.
The company also provides ticketing for a range of sporting organisations including Shamrock Rovers, Dundalk FC and others in the SSE Airtricity League, Dundee United and St Johnstone in Scotland, Punchestown, the Curragh and the Galway Races, as well as to many more including the Book of Kells at trinity College Dublin.
“Future Ticketing has partnered very successfully with Connacht Rugby in Ireland, helping the club to achieve a range of goals to build a cutting-edge ticketing system,” said CEO Liam Holton.
“This relationship in particular gives us a great platform to expand further into the UK and so we are delighted that Jersey Reds and Coventry Rugby have agreed to use our market leading software.”
“We have found both clubs to be focused on innovation for the purpose of offering their supporters a best in class service. They want to put their fans at the centre of their plans across the customer journey from booking seats to having a great match-day experience at the stadia.”
Jersey Reds plays at the Stade Santander International arena with a capacity of 4,000. Coventry Rugby plays at the Butts Park Arena, which has capacity for approximately 4,000 people, 3,000 of which are seated.
“It is essential that we offer our supporters mobile ticketing and we are really pleased to team up with Future Ticketing, who not only offer sophisticated software but also bring expertise and understanding of digital ticketing from rugby, football and horseracing.,” said Mark Morgan, Chairman of Jersey Reds.
“Through this partnership, we hope to benefit from the many insights they have developed across multiple sports and visitor attractions.”
“Our priority is to bring Coventry Rugby in line with the best practice in sport,” added Pete Brown, Managing Director of Coventry Rugby.
“In particular, we were seeking the most efficient barcoded ticketing and scanning system, online ticket booking, allocated seating, print-at-home tickets, and mobile ticketing on phones to beat match-day queues which have been commonplace at Butts Park Arena.”
