FC Cincinnati partners with SeatGeek

Major League Soccer club FC Cincinnati has named mobile ticket platform SeatGeek as the club’s Official Ticket Reseller for the 2019 season.

In 2020,  SeatGeek will become FC Cincinnati’s Official Ticketing Partner.

The MLS club, which kicked off its first home campaign this past weekend, has sold over 20,000 season tickets for 2019.

Jeff Berding, president and general manager at FC Cincinnati, said. “SeatGeek have significant MLS experience, have grown with the league, and more importantly, understand MLS and its fans.”

During 2019, FC Cincinnati fans will continue to access tickets through the club’s current ticketing system, but in 2020 SeatGeek will be the Official Ticket Provider.

It will continue in that role in 2021 when the MLS club moves to a new ground currently under construction, West End Stadium.

With this deal, FC Cincinnati joins five other MLS clubs currently using SeatGeek, as well as a number of other major sports entities, including the Dallas Cowboys and Manchester City.
