Silkmen Introduce Mobile Phone Ticket Technology With TicketCo

18 July 2019

Macclesfield Town have partnered with TicketCo to make purchasing tickets easier for supporters.

The partnership heralds a move to simplify the purchasing process at Macclesfield Town and improve the user experience for fans via the introduction of new technology. The TicketCo mobile technology can send QR codes to supporter’s smartphones which are then scanned at turnstiles to gain entry on match-day. The platform also provides Macclesfield with an online ticketing and payment facility which integrates with the club’s website and Facebook page.

James Beckett, Macclesfield Town Commercial Manager said: “This is an important part of our strategy to drive our revenue streams and fan engagement and improve our systems to provide a better service to supporters.

“We researched the market extensively and found the TicketCo platform very easy to use and we believe it will make our tickets more accessible via multiple channels. The platform will also help us future proof our systems and ensure we are prepared for the continued shift towards a cashless society. We are proud to be the first EFL club to partner with TicketCo.”

The mobile-first ticketing system has launched and season tickets are now available for purchase via the attached link.

James continued: “This is a convenient and modern way for people to buy tickets from us. Fans will still be able to buy tickets via traditional means, but we wanted to expand the choice.”

David Kenny, TicketCo UK Country Manager, said: “It is fantastic to partner with a club that is so passionate about fan engagement and providing a progressive ticketing solution. We will continue to work closely with the club to help it utilise the platform effectively. This partnership marks a break-through for us as it is the first EFL club to join our stable, building on the continued progress we are making in the football industry.”

TicketCo’s technology is designed to make event payments quick and easy for both organisers and consumers, thanks to its pioneering technology. The platforms’ technology is compatible with Android and iOS devices and enables organisers to promote offers on food, drink and merchandise in advance of events.

TicketCo has offices in Norway, the UK, Poland and Sweden. It has partnerships with several football clubs, including Kilmarnock, Legia Warsaw, Wycombe Wanderers, Solihull Moors and Eastleigh.

* Tickets for our first three home games will be available here from next week.
