Ticketmaster dropped by Canada’s CN Centre

Canadian ice hockey team the Prince George Cougars has dropped Ticketmaster as its ticketing partner.

The major junior team’s contract with the company has expired, with the contract for its 6,000-seat home arena CN Centre ending on July 31.

TicketNorth Enterprises, a new company owned by EDEPRo Sports and Entertainment, the group that owns the Prince George Cougars will be the new provider. TicketNorth will use Spectra as its ticketing platform.

City community service general manager, Rob Whitwham said, according to My Prince George Now website: “The city wasn’t really interested in having a separate box office scenario so we started working with the Cougars and came up with the arrangement.

“You still have the option of going to buy tickets for the Foreigner show at CN Centre either at the box office or, of course, you can do it online as well.”
