UEFA has announced SecuTix, the global ticketing and audience management solution provider, as its ticketing software licence provider for 2018-2021.

The agreement will see SecuTix provide ticketing software for the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament, the UEFA Champions League finals, the UEFA Europa League finals, the UEFA Super Cup and the UEFA Nations League finals in 2019 and 2021.

The new multi-country tournament for Euro 2020 will see the SecuTix software enhanced to support the complexities of the tournament. 24-teams and 51-matches will take place in 12 venues across Europe, located in five different time zones, and over three million tickets are expected to be sold.

UEFA will use the SecuTix software to handle all ticket applications, ticket lotteries, sales and payments for the general public, fans, sponsors and the wider football family. A resale platform will also be provided for a number of UEFA’s major events.

The contract builds on the partnership between UEFA and SecuTix dating back to 2013, which included the provision of ticketing software for Euro 2016.

Frédéric Longatte, CEO at SecuTix said: “We’re very proud to extend our relationship with UEFA. The appointment is proof that our agile technologies can rise to the challenge set by high-demand events across different venues with varying access systems. We will build upon our position as UEFA’s trusted software licence provider to help strengthen their fan relationships and offer fans a fair and transparent ticketing system.”
