What an amazing season finale we experienced last night at Rugby Park in Kilmarnock. Eamonn Brophy’s late penalty against Rangers securded Kilmarnock’s third place in the Scottish Premiership for the first time since 1966 – and a Europa League place.

“This was well worth a seven hours ride up north, and another seven hours to get back to London after the match,” says David Kenny.

Late penalty sent Kilmarnock to Europa League

TicketCo’s UK Country Manager drove all the way from London to Rugby Park to see Kilmarnock FC’s last match of the season, where the team needed a win to secure the third place as Aberdeen won their match agains Hibernian. With one minute to go before stoppage time it looked as though the third place and the Europa League place would slip, but then a late penalty changed everything.

Normally a trip like this from London to Kilmarnock would be have been done by plane, but due to the importance of this game all planes were filled up by Scotts. That forced Mr. Kenny to go on a driving mission, which he gladly did to see a new TicketCo client make it to Europa League.

Great season cards sales

“Kilmarnock FC signed up with TicketCo earlier this year, and they recently opened up their 2019/20 season ticket sales with a massive respons from their supporters. We are super happy to be serving this great football club, and we are thrilled that the 2018/19 season ended the way it did,” says Mr. Kenny.

“For TicketCo, yesterdays result means that we now will have teams from both Norway, Poland and Scotland in Europe next season,” the UK Country Manager finishes.
