Munich/Oberhausen, 16 August 2022. Today, 16 August 2022, Rudolf Weber ARENA in Oberhausen became an official ticketing partner of CTS EVENTIM, a leading international ticketing and live entertainment provider. Going forward, the partnership will make a whole host of benefits available to visitors purchasing tickets through the arena’s website. These benefits include a free choice of seats from the entire seating plan.
“The partnership with CTS EVENTIM is the next step in the development of our arena,” says general manager Mirco Markfort. “Unrestricted availability of tickets directly via our website and a strong service concept for our visitors were key criteria for us in the selection of our future ticketing partner.”
Since 16 August 2022, it has thus been possible to book tickets for any event at Rudolf Weber ARENA directly through the venue’s website, with the same level of service and the same scope of use offered by market leader CTS EVENTIM. This also includes an expansion of availability for handling individual questions and issues raised by visitors to the arena.
“We are delighted that this new partnership further strengthens our position as a service partner for large arenas in Germany such as LANXESS Arena, Barclays Arena and Mercedes-Benz Arena,” says Karsten Elbrecht, Vice President of Sales at CTS EVENTIM.
