New York-based ticketing company SeatGeek has secured a multiyear extension with the New Orleans Saints to remain the National Football League's primary ticketing partner.
The two parties first aligned in 2017 when SeatGeek moved on from fellow ticketing giant Ticketmaster.
Saints fans will continue to use the SeatGeek app to buy and manage their tickets and scan directly into the stadium. Meanwhile, the NFL team will now be able to utilize SeatGeek’s new backend client-facing technology, Unify.
“Five years ago, we realized we needed a primary ticketing partner who could grow with us and our Saints community, and signed on as the first NFL team to partner with SeatGeek,” said Michael Stanfield, Saints' senior vice president of sales. “We knew from the beginning that their innovative approach to ticketing would provide our passionate fan base with the best-in-class experience they expect and our staff with the most advanced backend technology needed to elevate our ticketing operations.
"Over the years, the team at SeatGeek has shown us that they’re committed to enriching every aspect of the fan journey, and we look forward to a successful future ahead," Stanfield said.In addition to the Saints, SeatGeek has also partnered with the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys and Washington Commanders. The company is also one of the league's officially licensed ticketing platforms.
With this deal, the Saints have now become the first NFL team to secure a multiyear renewal with SeatGeek.
