Ticketing firm See Tickets has secured a partnership with the UK’s largest public sports and leisure provider, GLL, for events at the Copper Box Arena and London Aquatics Centre located on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
As part of the deal with GLL, the charitable social enterprise who operates the venues on behalf of the London Legacy Development Corporation, See Tickets will now manage ticketing for the vast majority of events taking place at the two London venues originally built for the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
See Tickets, which manages ticketing services for a wide range of events across music, festival, sport, theatre and comedy, will provide essential ticketing and event management services to the Copper Box Arena as it diversifies its event programming, whilst supporting London Aquatics Centre with its ongoing sporting calendar. The Copper Box Arena has a capacity of 7,500 people, and the London Aquatics Centre can seat up to 2,500 people.
Chris Miles, London Aquatics Centre and Copper Box Arena Events Manager, said: “Four years on from the Games of 2012, the Park is a major destination for events and these two venues are thriving with sell-out crowds enjoying a wide range of sports and entertainments.
“Tickets sold for these events at the Copper Box Arena and London Aquatics Centre will now be managed by See Tickets through our new exciting partnership.
"Across the venues we host national and international sporting events, conferences, gigs, and large scale entertainment events. This autumn we’ve already hosted our resident basketball team the London Lions, international netball with England taking on Jamaica, ITV’s celebration of Team GB’s returning Olympians, and Dizzee Rascal performing ‘Boy In Da Corner’ live to a capacity crowd.”
Martin Fitzgerald at See Tickets said: “We are very pleased to be working with GLL at the Copper Box Arena and London Aquatics Centre particularly as the two legacy venues can host such a broad range of exciting events.
“We are confident that GLL will benefit from our significant ticketing experience which stretches across the likes of Glastonbury Festival and the Ryder Cup to West End theatre, arena tours and more intimate comedy and music events.”
