NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) – Ticketmaster has today (Nov. 20) announced that it has renewed its partnership with the MetLife Stadium to serve as the official ticketing partner for all events, including home games for the New York Jets and the New York Giants.
Under the renewed partnership, Ticketmaster will power the primary and secondary ticketing marketplaces for the New York Jets and the New York Giants and all other live events at MetLife Stadium on Ticketmaster.com and the Ticketmaster mobile app.
Utilizing Ticketmaster Presence, the ticket giant’s ‘next generation digital ticketing and venue access control platform,’ MetLife Stadium will be able to provide ‘faster entry, total fraud protection, and an unmatched personalized experience for football and live event fans.’ The New York Jets and the New York Giants will also use SafeTix, the latest enhancement to Presence, which ties a unique, identifiable digital ticket to each fan’s mobile phone and uses NFC tap and go technology along with rotating barcodes that refresh every 15 seconds, to prevent the replication and sale of fake tickets.
“Ticketmaster has been an incredible partner since our opening in 2010 and we are proud to renew our partnership with the leader in ticketing technology,” said Ron VanDeVeen, MetLife Stadium President & CEO. “From Giants and Jets home games to the biggest concerts in North America, MetLife Stadium is consistently delivering the most exciting live events. Now, thanks to Ticketmaster’s digital ticketing technology, these events will become even more enjoyable, as fans will have peace of mind that their ticket is real, thanks to Ticketmaster SafeTix eliminating fraud.”
“MetLife Stadium is considered one of the greatest venues in the world today, and we could not be more excited to renew our partnership with this iconic stadium, as well as the New York Giants and the New York Jets,” said Clay Luter, EVP and Co-Head of Sports for Ticketmaster, North America. “With Presence and SafeTix, NFL fans will now see a frictionless experience combined with a never-before-seen level of ticket security due to this innovative technology that is effectively eliminating fraud. It’s that kind of forward thinking that makes MetLife Stadium such an appealing space for the biggest artists and the best events.”
Since opening in 2010, MetLife Stadium has become one the most desired venues for artists and event owners, hosting Super Bowl XLVIII, Wrestlemania 29 and Wrestlemania 35, the International Champions Cup, and sold out concerts from Bon Jovi, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, Eminem and Rihanna, and countless other top artists.
