LONDON, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Ticketing firm becomes official collaborator of the Spanish Olympic Committee
viagogo has been rapidly expanding in Spain, selling concert, sports and theatre tickets. The company believes that supporting the Spanish Olympic Movement will help strengthen its relationship with Spanish fans of live sport and entertainment.
Edward Parkinson, viagogo spokesperson said: "We're proud to be supporting the Spanish Olympic Movement. We have always sought to partner with the world's leading sports organisations and bring the benefits of our unique ticketing experience. Becoming a part of the Olympic movement in Spain is a big step for our business."
Since launching in 2006, Viagogo has struck a number of ground-breaking partnerships with leading sports properties including Chelsea FC and Bayern Munich football clubs, Roland-Garros, and the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.
viagogo is a new kind of live event ticketing and marketing company that gives music, sports and theatre fans access to the best in live entertainment through a state-of-the-art online ticketing platform. viagogo's ticket marketplace allows fans to buy and sell live event tickets in a secure environment bringing safety and transparency to the ticket resale market, which has traditionally been a murky business prone to fraud.
Through its partnerships with many of the world's leading sports and music properties, including Chelsea FC, Roland-Garros, the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Group, viagogo gives fans access to hard to get tickets that are often sold-out at the box office and unavailable through other ticketing channels.
viagogo is the market leader in its sector and one of the fastest growing internet companies in Europe, with local language websites in over 26 countries.
