In the season-ticket holders meeting near the end of the 2018 season, the North Carolina Football Club (NCFC) staff alluded to changing ticket vendors and the ticket experience. Today, via their website, they announced that vendor was Ticketmaster.
The transition to Ticketmaster is also a transition to an all-digital ticketing system. Ticketmaster will need to install its venue software, Presence at WakeMed Soccer Park
NCFC said the all-digital ticketing also will mean that transferring individual and season tickets will become safer and more streamlined. With the new system, season ticket holders will be able to manage tickets online. Unused tickets can be exchanged for future games, as well as transfer tickets to friends and family, and resell tickets.
Greg Economou, Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Sports at Ticketmaster, North America said their digital ticket technology said they are excited to launch the partnership with NCFC. “With Ticketmaster’s industry-leading technology, North Carolina Football Club fans are now going to enjoy a whole new digital ticketing experience – one that is easier, safer, and offers more innovative features than ever for Season Ticket Members. … [We] can’t wait to see them in action this season.”
NCFC said the system will be online by early February prior to individual game tickets for the Courage and NCFC matches going on sale.
