Ticketmaster and Feld agree Global Ticketing pact

June 30, 2009
US-based global entertainment giants Ticketmaster and Feld Entertainment, Inc. have announced a multi-year worldwide pact that extends upon the companiesâ more than three decades long association.
During the first year of the new agreement, the companies expect to ramp-up sales for more than 6.5 million fans in more than two dozen countries for Feld Entertainmentâs top tier family and motor sports events. These include the iconic Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey® Circus and Disney On Ice events that consistently rank among the Top Five Ticketmaster Most Requested events each year.
Additionally, Ticketmaster will now oversee national and key international ticketing for Feld Entertainmentâs newly established Feld Motor Sports events, which includes marquee brands Monster Jam® and the AMA Supercross motorcycle racing series.
âFeld Entertainmentâs extended and expanded relationship with Ticketmaster allows our customers around the world access to Feld Entertainmentâs premier events,�? said Jeff Meyer, Senior Vice President with Feld Entertainment. âThis new agreement is right in line with Feld Entertainmentâs business plan, specifically to continue to increase Monster Jam and other Feld Motor Sports events overseas.�?
âFeld Entertainment has set the bar developing family live entertainment that is universally beloved by audiences of all generations throughout the world,�? said Eric Korman, President of Ticketmaster. âWe believe our more than 30 year alliance has provided us with a knowledge and understanding of their fans that is second only to their own. We look forward to many more years together and helping to connect fans with Feld Entertainmentâs various productions around the world.�?
