2015 YEAR REVIEWDecember 22, 2015
Crafting the 2015 year review we are excited to announce that it has been a very successful year for Tickethour! We managed to win some of the most important tenders both in Europe and Asia.
Qatar 2015 24th Men’s Handball World Championship
It is the biggest international handball tournament, held every 2 years, and on January 2015 took place in Qatar. Tickethour won the international tender, becoming the Official Provider of both the Ticketing and the Access Control System for the Games. It was the first time that mobile ticketing was used in Qatar (completely paperless ticketing) and the fans were able to enter the venue by using their smart devices.
Baku 2015 1st European Games
In the first ever European Games, Tickethour was selected as the Official Ticketing and Access Control Provider! The company excelled presenting an impeccable performance, which was determined to a great extent by the following key figures:
- 17 days of competition
- 20 different Sports
- 18 different Venues
- 283 Sessions
- Over 600,000 tickets for sale
- About 30 different point of sales, with over 100 sellers
- Over 160 access control points, either at venue gates or at venue cluster entrances
Belgium Pro League / Belgium Proximous League / Belgium National Team
On March 2015 we were awarded the biggest Ticketing tender in Europe! The Belgium professional Football League “Jupiler Pro League” selected Tickethour to provide its Ticketing system and services. Few months later, we have been awarded also the Second Division, as well as the National Team of Belgium for all its home matches.
Greece Superleague (Football) and Basket League
In an attempt to control, even eliminate the problems of football violence, Greek Ministry of Sports has decided to a) use a central – shared among all first division football clubs – Ticketing System and b) release the National Fan Card. Both measures have also been adopted by the Basketball League.
Within a less than a month, we managed to develop and setup the “Superleague” Central Ticketing Database which was configured for all national and European games of all teams, for both Football and Basketball. Access to the system was given not only to the ticketing personnel of all Clubs, but also representatives from Police, Ministry of Sports and Ministry of Economy.
2016 AFC U-23 Championship
And just before the year is gone, the 2016 AFC U-23 Championship tender has just been awarded to Tickethour! A tournament that will take place in Qatar in January 2016.
Some info about the tournament:
- Participants: 16 nations
- Event: 32 matches
- Duration: from 12/01/16 till 30/01/16
