Ticketmaster Czech Republic has signed a partnership deal with the 18,000-capacity O2 Arena Prague.

Under the agreement, the ticketing giant will become the official ticketing partner of the Bestsport-owned venue, which hosted concerts for Imagine Dragons, Metallica and Depeche Mode in 2018. The arena has had a landmark year, welcoming its 10 millionth visitor.

The O2 Arena Prague, which opened 15 years ago, also played host to sporting events including the tennis FED Cup Finals, the IFF World Floorball Championship and the gala show of showjumping Global Champions Prague Playoffs.

Simona Matějková, managing director of Ticketmaster Czech Republic, said: “Partnering with one of the country’s biggest and most innovative venues is hugely exciting for us and a significant moment in our development following our launch in the Czech Republic two years ago.

“As the O2 arena Prague prepares to play host to some of the biggest names in music and sport in the coming months, we are looking forward to working with the venue and Bestsport to provide a simple and seamless experience for fans looking to buy tickets to some amazing events.”
