Somerset join up with the Jockey Club
Somerset County Cricket Club have today announced a new partnership with Jockey Club Services to deliver ticketing for all events at The County Ground, Taunton for the next three years.
Jockey Club Services offers a range of world-class business services to organisations in professional sports in the UK. Their ticketing platform this year alone will process more than 1.5 million tickets for The Jockey Club’s 15 racecourses in the course of staging events including the Crabbie’s Grand National, the Cheltenham Festival and The Investec Derby.
Through this new supplier relationship, Somerset CCC will receive a top grade ‘enterprise class’ ticketing solution, supported by a team of ticketing experts from The Jockey Club’s Business Services department.
A number of phases of development have been completed at The County Ground over the last few years. Now it is ready to host international cricket, with the first match being one of England’s three T20I’s against South Africa in 2017.
Somerset CEO Guy Lavender said: “With The County Ground now able to host international cricket from 2017 the volume of spectators visiting us will rise substantially. It is crucial that we have a ticketing platform that is robust and provides a smooth experience for everyone looking to buy tickets for all forms of cricket played here in Somerset and our other events. We know the expertise that Jockey Club Services offers and we are delighted to be working with them.”
Rob Quick, Director of Jockey Club Services, said: “Jockey Club Services has invested a great deal of resource into developing a ticketing solution that works for professional sports clubs. We are delighted to partner with Somerset County Cricket Club who will soon see the benefits of this platform once the 2016 fixtures are released shortly. Over the last few years there has been significant investment at The County Ground on many levels and the quality of the facilities are now first-class. Jockey Club Services is honoured to now be part of the next phase of investment managed by Guy and his team.”
Staff at the County Ground, Taunton have received extensive training on the new Membership and ticketing system over the last few days and will endeavor to process your new Membership as quickly and efficiently as possible.
