Mobile-centric ticketing technology platform SeatGeek has become the primary ticketing provider for St. Louis CITY SC, as the club prepares for its inaugural season in Major League Soccer (MLS) in 2023.
Edmound Elzy, St. Louis CITY SC’s vice president of ticketing sales and service, said: “After an overwhelming response during our club’s record-breaking season ticket deposit campaign, we knew it was important to have a strong ticketing partner to support our sales.
“We are so excited to be partnering with SeatGeek and incorporate their state-of-the-art technology into our club’s fan experience.”
St. Louis is the seventh partner for SeatGeek in the MLS, including Minnesota United, Austin FC and FC Cincinnati.
SeatGeek’s platform will be integrated into St. Louis CITY’S mobile-first approach, with customers able to buy, transfer and scan tickets. Utilising mobile ticketing will also mean the ability to stay contactless when entering the stadium. SeatGeek will also power the club’s back-office technology.
Co-founder and chief executive of SeatGeek Jack Groetzinger added: “We are thrilled to partner with an organisation that is so deeply rooted in its commitment to fans, and has a a passion for using new technology to create the ultimate match day experience.
“Together, we look forward to building incredible memories for St. Louis CITY supporters across the city.”
