What they say

eightyone600 has been supporting The FA in its promotion of the England Lioness matches since September 2017. Jon Duckworth took on the challenge of maximising ticket sales to two international matches with less than a couple of months to go. With a can-do attitude and absolute commitment to make it work he rolled up his sleeves, engaged his team and before we knew it he had managed to sell out both venues. A huge success as a result of which we have engaged him to do more with us going forward. His application and consideration of all potential avenues to drive ticket sales is second to none, he and his team certainly think out of the box and are creative with their approach in all aspects. He has helped a great deal and continues to do so.

Since 2016, eightyone600 has served as the marketing lead in Europe for Relevent Sports Group’s annual International Champions Cup. Their professionalism, attention to detail and proactive approach to the marketing and promotion of our matches is why they are, and will continue to be, our go-to European partner.

The WRU Autumn series has seen audience levels plateau and so we felt we needed to bring in outside marketing expertise to review and implement an end to end marketing strategy and plan. The WRU has worked with eightyone600 for the last 4 years across ticketing marketing and various other projects and we felt they were best suited to help guide our new pricing strategy to the market, in the hope we could revitalise sales across the series. Jon worked closely across many internal teams and agencies and his structure and guidance helped us achieve the highest attended series since 2008.

David Beckham, Manchester United and UNICEF are high profile brands who demand the best. Having eightyone600 on our team enabled us to develop a best in-class ticketing marketing strategy that ultimately led to a sold-out Old Trafford.

As part of its growth plans, Bath Rugby took the strategic decision to move a regular season home game to Twickenham Stadium. Whilst we regularly sell out our 14,500 capacity home ground, filling 82,000 seats at Twickenham was an entirely different proposition and in eightyone600 we recognised the experience and expertise that would help us market ourselves on a much bigger stage to a wider audience. They were with us every step of the way and made a significant contribution to a magnificent day that will live long in the memory.

With just 3 months to go until this major World Championship event, ticket sales needed to be driven harder and so we brought in eightyone600 to kick-start demand. They rapidly developed a structured and cogent campaign plan that galvanised stakeholders and led to the ticketing revenue target being reached, and ultimately exceeded. Experienced and knowledgeable, they go about their work in a thoroughly professional way, creating the trust and confidence that the job will get done to the highest standards.

As an NGB events team, having to create and deliver a ticketing and marketing strategy for two major international events across a 3-year period, we have found eightyone600’s insightful approach and wealth of experience very effective in reaching our target audiences. Their strategic direction, attention to detail, reporting and consistent follow-up gave our stakeholder partners great confidence throughout the event build-up and delivery. I would not hesitate to recommend eightyone600 to any event organiser looking for ticketing, marketing & PR support.
