Seat Geek

Gagnier Communications handles SeatGeek, online live entertainment ticketing company, as it goes public via a $1.4B SPAC merger with RedBall Acquisition.

SeatGeek is the exclusive ticketing platform for the Brooklyn Nets (Barclays Center), Cleveland Cavaliers (Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse), Dallas Cowboys (AT&T Stadium), Liverpool FC as well as theaters on Broadway and London’s West End.

RedBall has more than $5B invested in sports, media and ticketing entities such as YES Network, Fenway Sports Group, XFL, Toulouse FC and On Location Experiences.

SeatGeek CEO Jack Groetzinger said his company has transformed the ticket purchasing process “into a seamless, delightful experience that enriches events for fans, sellers and rights holders.”

He said RedBall Capital's experiences and relationships in the sports, entertainment and ticketing categories make it the ideal partner.
