Munich/Mönchengladbach, 25 March 2021. CTS EVENTIM, one of the leading international providers of ticketing services and live entertainment, and Borussia Mönchengladbach have signed an extensive ticketing partnership agreement. In future, the Bundesliga club will handle its ticket sales for home matches using the EVENTIM.Tixx software provided by sports specialist EVENTIM Sports.
The partnership is designed for the long term and also includes deep integration of the ticketing operation in Borussia’s IT systems. This will allow fans to use a single login identity for all the web applications. By means of the Tixx-Clubsale solution for the secondary market, tickets can be purchased and resold directly in Borussia Mönchengladbach’s online ticket shop.
Borussia’s manager, Stephan Schippers, was keen to emphasise that, ‘By partnering with EVENTIM, we want to and will be optimising the service we provide our fans when selling tickets to our home matches, and modernising ourselves on a sustainable basis by expanding our electronic ticketing.’
Karsten Elbrecht, managing director of CTS EVENTIM Sports GmbH, said, ‘We are pleased to welcome Borussia Mönchengladbach as another top club in Germany that has decided to adopt our digitalisation solutions. Borussia Mönchengladbach is one of the best-managed clubs in Germany and a pioneer in terms of innovation and digitalisation. So we are all the more pleased that Borussia has placed its trust in the expertise we have gained over many years on the sports market. We look forward full of anticipation to working with one of the most successful and long-standing clubs in Germany.’
