Cork City FC goes digital

Wednesday, 9th January, 2019 5:04pm

Ahead of the new season, Cork City FC have announced that it is to partner with Eventbrite to bring mobile ticketing to fans.

Starting yesterday, Cork City fans now have a number of convenient methods to get their hands on tickets. As well as the traditional paper format, the club is now offering digital tickets that fans can buy on Facebook, on the club’s homepage, or via Eventbrite’s events marketplace.

While the new Eventbrite-powered tickets can be printed at home, fans can now skip this step and use their mobiles at the stadium gates to have their digital ticket scanned straight off their phone screens. Eventbrite opened its current office on the South Mall in June 2018.

“We chose Eventbrite with our fans in mind,” said Paul Wycherley, General Manager at Cork City FC.

“Eventbrite’s system drastically reduces the hassle for our fans: they can get tickets for our games whenever and wherever they are: on the couch, on the bus, on Facebook – even on their way to the stadium. And apart from that it seems only fitting that a company creating jobs in Cork provides the ticketing for a Cork club.”
