English League One football club Bristol Rovers has entered into a partnership with Axess and Ticketmaster, which will deliver ticketing and access control services at The Memorial Stadium.
The new partnership will see the introduction of Axess software and scanning hardware for access control at the stadium.
Axess has worked with venues across the globe including Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, Nokia Arena in Tampere, Finland and BMO Stadium in Los Angeles.
Across the summer, new ticket scanners will be installed at all turnstiles and stewards will be equipped with upgraded hand scanners.
Peter Oliver, managing director of Axess UK, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Bristol Rovers and Ticketmaster as we introduce Axess’ high-quality stadium access control system into the UK market. In an established market, innovation, quality and reliability is of equal importance as we move into the era of digital tickets.”
Rovers’ retail and ticketing manager, Pete Weymouth, added: “Being able to work with one company for ticketing and fan entry into the stadium will make processes at the club a lot smoother. We suffered some challenges at the start of last season, and it took a lot of work going between the numerous companies we were working with.
“Since that point, Ticketmaster has worked with us to get us back to where we should be, and now we’ll move forward with the new Axess system, I am confident of delivering a service to our fans next season that exceeds their expectations.”
