Event technology company Event Genius has partnered with non-league football club Boreham Wood to utilise online ticketing, kiosk and access control services for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.

As part of the agreement, fans will be given the chance to pay for cheaper standing or seating tickets in advance, using Apple Pay, Google Pay or their bank card from the club’s online box office, which is provided by Event Genius.

The deal with the Vanarama National League club began with Saturday’s Irn Bru Cup tie against Dunfermline Athletic.

Each e-ticket purchase can be directly downloaded to fans’ smartphones, saved to the Ticket Arena app or printed at home. E-tickets will also feature a unique barcode, which can be authenticated by turnstile staff with a scan to reduce queue and wait times for fans. On-the-door tickets will also be available through a swift and robust kiosk solution.

James Livingston, business development manager at Event Genius, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with the team at Boreham Wood to improve the match day experience at Meadow Park.

“By signing with us, fans of ‘the Wood’ can buy their tickets cheaper than they can on-the-door and can spend more time in the ground enjoying the atmosphere and action, instead of waiting in line to get in. We look forward to developing the relationship further with exciting new features in the pipeline.”
