Our Ticketmaster company recently launched a three-year official ticket resale partnership with Aston Villa Football Club, one of the oldest and most prominent professional football clubs in the Premier League.
Based in Witton, Birmingham, England, Aston Villa will be the first club in the League to utilize Seatwave, Ticketmaster’s resale marketplace.
Starting next week, football fans will have the ability to buy or sell Villa tickets in a dependable, secure and club-approved way on Seatwave, and season ticket holders unable to attend games can sell their tickets to other Aston Villa supporters on the platform as well. Fans buying resold tickets will receive validated, reissued new tickets in their own name.
Aston Villa has already used Ticketmaster’s primary online platform for 20 years. Ticketmaster’s resale technology will integrate with the club’s existing Ticketmaster Sport ticketing solution.
Ticketmaster Sport currently powers the ticketing for more football clubs in the Premier League than any other provider.
