Ticketing platform SeatGeek has been made a preferred ticketing partner of the United Soccer League (USL).
Five USL clubs have committed to using SeatGeek’s platform starting with the 2023 season, including FC Tulsa, Detroit City FC, Lexington SC, Monterey Bay FC and Richmond Kickers.
A further five clubs already have pre-existing partnerships with SeatGeek: Charleston Battery, Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC, Hartford Athletic, Louisville City FC and New Mexico United.
Court Jeske, USL chief commercial officer, said: “The USL is focused on bringing the right partners and fan experiences into our soccer ecosystem, we are proud to add SeatGeek to that rapidly growing list.
“The USL clubs who have been working with SeatGeek wholeheartedly endorse its products and services. It made sense to cement a long-term relationship so that more teams can experience SeatGeek’s advantages.”
Jeff Ianello, executive vice-president of client partnerships at SeatGeek, added: “When it comes to current generations, everything they do and experience has some tech element to it. For sports to remain appealing to fans, we have no choice but to keep integrating new technology.
“The fact that more and more USL clubs are reaching out to sign with us is a testament to both the platform we’ve built and the league’s willingness to push the boundaries of what ticketing can do for its clubs.”
