Matchroom Boxing, the world’s leading boxing promoter, broadens partnership with sports travel, hospitality and event services business Sportsworld for its UK shows.
Enhancing the VIP customer experience at all Matchroom Boxing promoted arena shows is the focus of the new agreement.
Matchroom Boxing, the world’s leading boxing promoter has extended its partnership with sports travel, hospitality and event services business Sportsworld, to operate as its Official Hospitality Provider.
The agreement covers all of Matchroom’s UK Saturday Fight Night and Sky Box Office arena shows, with venues including The O2, Manchester Arena, FlyDSA Arena Sheffield and M&S Bank Arena Liverpool.
Sportsworld’s ongoing focus will be to manage and enhance the VIP experience within the dedicated hospitality areas accessible by selected ringside ticket holders and establish a market-leading hospitality product on behalf of Matchroom.
