MCC extends ticketing partnership

Oct 03, 2013

The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) today announced that Ticketek will continue as the ticketing services partner of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) for a further five years, following the completion of a competitive tender process.

The renewed partnership will ensure patrons continue to receive quick and easy access to tickets for events at the MCG through Australia’s most comprehensive sales and distribution network.

These include Ticketek’s market leading mobile site and mobile apps, Australia’s number one entertainment events website ticketek.com.au, a dedicated call centre and extensive national agency network.

The MCG is one of Australia’s largest and most successful stadiums. An extremely busy venue hosting Australian rules football, international cricket, rugby, soccer, concerts and other major functions, it is attended by more than 3.5 million people annually.

MCC CEO Stephen Gough is pleased that Ticketek has been reappointed.

“The MCG is a world-class stadium and we continue to look at ways of enhancing the patron experience at the MCG,” said Mr Gough.

“As the leading ticketing partner to the sports and live entertainment industry in Australia, we’re delighted that Ticketek will continue to provide its ticketing services at the MCG.”

“Ticketek is thrilled to be continuing our partnership with the MCG and share their vision for providing world class services,” said Ticketek CEO Geoff Jones.

“MCG patrons have embraced the convenience of our locally developed mobile technology, including mobile tickets, and through our renewed partnership we will continue to develop further innovations to enhance the patron ticket buying experience.”
