TOWNSVILLE, Queensland (CelebrityAccess) — Ticketmaster has been named as the official ticketing agent for the under-construction North Queensland Stadium in Australia.
Work on the new 25,000 seat stadium remains on track for completion ahead of the 2020 National Rugby League season, with crews currently putting the finishing touches on the stadium’s fourth level.
“We are honored to be part of the North Queensland Stadium story, and we can’t wait to be part of the exciting new events that come to Townsville,” Ticketmaster Australia Managing Director Maria O’Connor said.
“Our focus for North Queensland Stadium is distinctly local and are pleased to be opening dedicated ticketing outlets in Townsville, Mackay, and Cairns as part of this deal.
“We’re committed to customer service, fan engagement and providing fans a safe and secure ticketing experience, and we look forward to providing this to patrons in North Queensland,” she added.
The $250m AUD stadium, which is slated to be opened in 2020, will serve as the home field for the North Queensland Cowboys, an Australian professional rugby league football club based in Townsville. The team currently occupies the 26,500-capacity Willows Sports Complex, currently known as 1300SMILES Stadium.
“This is going to be a world-class stadium not only for sporting events, but other major entertainment events, concerts, and community events,” North Queensland Stadium Manager Glenn Arboitt said.
