Ticketmaster and Trent Bridge, the home of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club have enjoyed a long and successful relationship for more than 15 years.

Cricket has been played at Trent Bridge since the 1830s and the stadium has been transformed in recent years with the addition of new stands, spectator facilities, corporate suites and a media centre.

When Trent Bridge looked at a range of access control systems for this world class venue they chose Ticketmaster.

The wireless access control system was installed in time for the 2015 Ashes series, the ultimate test for any UK cricket ground.

The system passed with flying colours, scanning more than 50,000 tickets.

The access control system provided consists of:

  • Stadium cabling and servers
  • 10 Wireless Access points
  • 50+ wireless hand-held scanners

Ticketmaster also provides further services in the form of:

  • Branded ticketing  and ecommerce platform
  • Marketing support via Ticketmaster.co.uk
  • Call centre and fulfilment services

“The introduction of Access Manager has already had an impact on the data we hold regarding the attendance habits of our members and ticket holders, this is helping to inform and improve our digital marketing campaigns. In addition Access Manager has also had a significant impact from an operational point of view and we have seen a dramatic improvement in the speed of entry for our ticket holders which has seen queues eliminated, even on a major match day. With the installation support received from Ticketmaster the introduction of the system was seamless for both staff and supporters.”
