Future Ticketing announce latest EFL partnership with Oldham Athletic
Future Ticketing have agreed their latest partnership with Oldham Athletic to become their new ticketing provider.
The five year deal sees Oldham join the likes of Fleetwood, Rochdale and Barrow as EFL partners to Future Ticketing, who also have a number of clubs in Scotland and non-league.
Looking to transform the ticketing operations, the club will now have full control and visibility over all elements of fixtures, ticketing, capacity management, seating plans and so much more, but more importantly will now have immediate access to ticketing revenues which is extremely important for all clubs in the current environment.
There will be a short period of transition whilst fan's information is transferred securely from the current system to the new one, with the club expecting season ticket sales to be able to resume next month.
Commenting, Ronan Burns, Business Development Manager for Future Ticketing, said; "Future Ticketing are looking forward to working with Oldham Athletic and despite a tough period for clubs, we are continuing to grow our business and are now partnering very successfully with over 35 professional football clubs across England, Scotland and Ireland and our expansion into the English and Scottish Football leagues continues as many clubs prepare for a new normal, post-lockdown.
"In fact, many of the clubs who have come on board within the last 12 months now more than ever see the importance of having an innovative partner like Future Ticketing as a cornerstone to support their digital development."
Latics' Supporter Services Manager, Gina Buckley commented; "We’re pleased to be partnering with Future Ticketing and believe their software will help us transform our ticketing operation while making the purchase and processing of ticketing so much easier for both the club and our loyal supporters, and more importantly working with the Future Ticketing software gives us immediate access to our ticketing revenues.
"Their easy to use ticketing software has impressed us and their access control and seating plan functionality will assist the club in providing a safe and controlled environment for the return of our supporters, while the auto renewal process will make seat renewals so much easier for our supporters and our club staff in the future. We are very confident that it will help us save time and resources as well as helping us to continuously improve supporter engagement."
