Giles Bayliss, business development manager for Tickets.com was instrumental in securing the deal with Aberdeen FC, working closely with the club to determine a solution to its bespoke ticketing requirements. Commenting on the agreement, he said: “From very early on in our discussions with David and his team, it was clear to see how well ProVenueMax™ would align with the club’s strategic aims. Aberdeen FC is a progressive, forwarding-thinking business that has very clear objectives and ProVenueMax™ will bring about significant benefits for both the club and its customers.”
David Bowman confirmed that Aberdeen FC is continuing with its well-documented search for a new site, as restrictions at the existing location mean that Pittodrie Stadium cannot be extended: “We are still working hard to achieve our aspiration of a new ground, which would bring with it both challenges and opportunities. We see our new partnership with Tickets.com as a key milestone for having the processes in place for when we are ready to move to a modern purpose built facility.”
As well as hosting all home matches for Aberdeen FC, the club’s existing 21,421 all-seated stadium is also used for international matches and was the venue for Scotland’s 1-0 win over Estonia last month as Gordon Strachan took charge of the national side for the first time.
In recent years, Pittodrie Stadium has also hosted a number of Scottish Rugby Union test matches and concerts including Elton John and Rod Stewart.
