PRAGUE, Czech Republic (CelebrityAccess) — Ticketmaster’s Czech Republic office has become the official ticketing service of the O2 Arena Prague.
The deal will see Ticketmaster provide ticketing for all upcoming events at the arena, as well as tickets for events hosted at the brand new O2 Universum, a multi-purpose conference facility under construction next door and which is slated to open in September.
The Universum will provide additional scalable capacity for sports events and concerts, as well as conferences and corporate events. When it opens, its largest hall will be able to accommodate up to 4,500 visitors and overall capacity of 10,000 visitors using the space of all 21 halls.
Operated and owned by Best sport, 18,000-capacity O2 arena Prague marked its 10 millionth visitor in 2019.
Last year, the arena hosted concerts for Imagine Dragons, Metallica and Depeche Mode, as well as high profile sporting events including the tennis FED Cup Finals, the IFF World Floorball Championship and the gala show of showjumping Global Champions Prague Playoffs.
“Partnering with one of the country’s biggest and most innovative venues is hugely exciting for us and a significant moment in our development following our launch in the Czech Republic two years ago. As the O2 arena Prague prepares to play host to some of the biggest names in music and sport in the coming months, we are looking forward to working with the venue and Bestsport to provide a simple and seamless experience for fans looking to buy tickets to some amazing events,” said Simona Matějková, Managing Director of Ticketmaster Czech Republic.
