Future Ticketing scores exciting new partnership with Hartlepool United

Future Ticketing has further expanded its footprint in the English football market by entering a new partnership with Hartlepool United FC.

The leading digital ticketing solutions provider is delighted to team up with a club like Hartlepool which shares its commitment to ensuring the needs of the fans are paramount.

Liam Holton, CEO at Future Ticketing said: “We are delighted to announce this new partnership with Hartlepool FC. We share the club's vision for improving the fan experience at The Suit Direct Stadium.”

He added: “Our role will empower the Hartlepool FC ticketing team to take control of their ticketing and provide an easy online purchase journey. On the day fans will have a smooth entry to the ground through digital tickets which sit in the Hartlepool FC app. We're excited to go on this journey with Hartlepool FC and put fans back at the centre of their ticketing offering.”

Future Ticketing is especially pleased that its state-of-the-art software innovation, with an intense focus on API-first, means that season tickets and matchday tickets will be available digitally and the transition to cashless transactions will be a comfortable one.

Fans will purchase tickets with debit or credit card, Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Hartlepool United said the partnership with Future Ticketing will result in an up to date, innovative and easy to use system for the club's fans.

There will be new hardware at the turnstiles and the scanning of e-tickets will reduce queuing times and inconvenience for supporters on match day.

While the option of hard form tickets remain, Hartlepool United is encouraging supporters to use the digital option where possible.

Rose Stoker, Head of Commercial and Operations at Hartlepool said: “We are really pleased to get this partnership live following months of research into various ticketing providers. The club have been working hard to identify a solution for the problems our supporters face before, and especially on a matchday in terms of long queues and the overall ticketing experience.”

She added: “Future Ticketing will provide that long overdue solution and we are all really excited to see the benefits, which will form a part in our objective to improving our fan experience.”
