What is a VIP hospitality package?

VIP hospitality provides sport, music, and comedy fans the chance to experience live events at a premium level.

This eliminates tedious processes that can impact negatively on the overall experience, such as long entrance queues and wait times. It also means you’ll receive 5-star customer service and luxury added touches that aren't available with standard tickets.

VIP packages help make memorable experiences with family and friends extra special, especially when celebrating occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, and hen and stag dos.
