We are pleased to confirm that Ampthill Rugby is partnering with ticketing platform Venueserve for our inaugural season in the Greene King IPA Championship.
Venueserve will provide an online sales platform and mobile-friendly ticket scanning system that we trust will prove easy to use for both our members and all visiting supporters.
The capacity for Dillingham Park will be capped at 3000 for this season and all tickets will be available in advance through Venueserve. We trialed online ticketing last season in National One, and the partnership with Venueserve has been formed to simplify the purchasing process at Ampthill Rugby following feedback that we received from some of our members and supporters.
Venueserve provides Ampthill Rugby with an online ticketing and secure payment facility which fully integrates with the club website and Facebook pages. Venueserve sends tickets with QR codes to supporters’ smartphones which are then scanned at our box office to gain entry on match-day.
Alex Radley, Ampthill Rugby Chairman said “We are excited by the prospect of our first season in the Greene King IPA Championship and as a club always looking to improve our matchday experience for all visitors to Dillingham Park.
Whilst we will always be a Community Rugby Club, we will embrace the changes required to both operate effectively and be taken seriously at this level. The Venueserve fully digital platform is very straight forward to use and will definitely improve our match-day function, whilst being ecologically friendly negating our supporter’s need to print tickets at home.
We fully expect there to be some teething problems as we bed in the system and revise our entry process and we’d appreciate all of our members and visitors support in this. Please be patient with our volunteer team for the first few matches of the season whilst we finetune our operations.”
Simon Downes, Sales Director for Venueserve said “We are delighted to partner with Ampthill Rugby Club to deliver a ticketing solution that will support their growth aspirations and fan marketing activities. Alex and his team are taking Ampthill on an amazing journey which will drive long-term growth both on and off the pitch. We believe that clubs should own their own data and be paid directly by the fans without paying license fees for software. Ampthill’s success is our success and we cannot wait to watch the team progress throughout the season”
