Tukwila, Washington (October 8, 2020) - The Seattle Seawolves, one of the founding teams of Major League Rugby, have announced a new agreement with AXS, a leader in ID-based digital technology, to become the official ticketing and resale partner for Seattle Seawolves matches.

The five-year deal will be in place for all Seattle Seawolves matches at Starfire Stadium starting with the 2021 Major League Rugby season kickoff next spring providing state-of-the-art technology to ensure a frictionless purchase and mobile entry experience for ticket holders attending Seattle Seawolves matches.

“AXS is a pioneer of the digital ticketing industry and we’re very excited to bring their customer-friendly ticketing platform that will streamline the user experience to Seawolves fans” said Seattle Seawolves President, Shane Skinner.

With AXS, the Seattle Seawolves will enable fans to purchase mobile tickets, engage in contactless entry with a scan of their smartphone, manage their accounts directly from their mobile devices and seamlessly transfer or sell tickets for matches they cannot attend. The Seawolves will add to the AXS ticketing family in the Seattle area joining The Showbox, Showbox SoDo, and Marymoor Park.

“We are thrilled to welcome the two-time Major League Rugby champion Seawolves into the AXS family. Rugby is a sport on the rise in North America and we look forward to bringing a world-class fan experience to this up-and-coming League. Seawolves matches are typically sold out and we believe the AXS platform will allow more fans the opportunity to attend matches conveniently through our integrated marketplace,” said Rob Sine, Chief Revenue Officer for AXS.
