Bankwest Stadium – the new home of sport and entertainment in Western Sydney – has today confirmed it has partnered with Ticketek Australia for all event ticketing going forward, starting with the Community Open Day on Sunday 14 April.

Bankwest Stadium joins the illustrious ranks of ANZ Stadium, MCG, SCG, Suncorp Stadium, Adelaide Oval and AAMI Park as major venues covered by ticketek.com.au, a premier ticketing, technology and marketing network.

Bankwest Stadium is the new 30,000-seat at Parramatta, acclaimed for its design that will bring fans closer to the action than ever before in Australia.

Bankwest Stadium is managed under the authority of NSW Government agency Venues NSW and is operated by VenuesLive. Ticketek is one of 14 businesses in ticketing, live entertainment and data analytics owned and operated by TEG, Asia Pacific’s largest integrated live entertainment company.

Bankwest Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry said today that Ticketek’s vast experience would stand the new stadium in good stead in its first year of operations.

“Bankwest Stadium will set a new standard in the event experience in Sydney and we are thrilled to have Ticketek on board to help us deliver events at the Stadium,” Mr Kerry said.

“We value the fact that Ticketek has its own local technology team to develop and deliver world-class customer experiences to Australian fans.

“We are particularly excited about Ticketek’s innovation in mobile ticketing and technology and the many benefits this will provide to fans and hirers at Bankwest Stadium.”

TEG CEO Geoff Jones today thanked Venues NSW and VenuesLive for the opportunity for Ticketek to be a foundation partner at Bankwest Stadium.

“Bankwest Stadium represents a step change in the live entertainment experience in Australia,” Mr Jones said.

“The breathtaking design, the sightlines and the proximity of seats to the action will produce atmospherics that will set new benchmarks.

“I am thrilled that Ticketek will be providing the exclusive ticketing, technology and digital marketing services at Bankwest Stadium and we all look forward to this exciting project coming to life.”

Ticketek is supporting the Bankwest Stadium Community Open Day on Sunday 14 April. So far more than 20,000 complimentary tickets have been reserved for the event, the first opportunity for fans itching to get a look inside the new venue.
