TicketNetwork, Inc. (“TicketNetwork”), a leading online marketplace for live event ticket resale, announced today a new partnership with hyperlocal news platform, Patch. The collaboration will bring competitively priced concert, sports, and theater tickets to millions of Patch users across the country. One of the largest of its kind, this integration will provide Patch readers with a 10 percent discount to popular events in their area (via the “PatchTickets10” promo code).
Patch features a robust platform that allows users to post about and discover local events on its newsfeed and calendar. Through this partnership, Patch readers who find an event they wish to attend, can instantly purchase tickets by clicking on the orange “Get Tickets” button on the homepage of their local Patch.
“Patch Tickets will help millions of Patch users choose from a wide variety of highly sought after live event tickets inventory, with an easy to use and secure platform from which to purchase event tickets,” says TicketNetwork’s COO, Mike Honeyman. “In partnering with Patch, we are able to bring affordable and fun events right to the neighborhood of over 1,200 Patch communities across the nation.”
TicketNetwork connects users to more than 100,000 concerts, sports and theater events worldwide. All tickets are listed by trusted sellers and are backed by our company’s 100 percent money-back guarantee.
Patch and TicketNetwork have both seen the local events market grow over the past few years, recognizing that “locality” enhances the overall user experience.
Patch is one of the fastest growing hyperlocal news organizations in the country. As other local publications shut their doors, Patch continues to expand into communities including Birmingham, AL, Miami, FL, and Charlotte, NC. Patch also launched a new mobile app this year that helps readers follow the different communities they are tied to. The app has over 200,000 downloads with a 4.5-star rating in the major app stores.
