Whether it’s for your favorite concert or a business networking function, here are seven websites where you can find, buy or sell tickets to events in Nigeria.

We love that there’s a working live chat that lets you ask for help every step of the way. You can also sell tickets for your events on this site.

However, unlike purchasing tickets, you must create an account. With your account, you can then create events and manage them from your dashboard.

2. Ticket Center

We also love that in addition to ticketing, you can host virtual events right on the platform and get people involved. Think webinars, courses, virtual networking events and more. It also saves you the added stress of spreading your event planning across multiple CRMs.

7. Planet Ticket

Being one of the oldest ticketing platforms in Nigeria, Planet ticket continues to facilitate the sale and purchase of tickets. On this site you can book flights, events and even movie tickets online.

The downside is that the website can feel a little unresponsive, especially when the ticket posters look distorted. Movie tickets are also a bit outdated as you would see old movies that are no longer available in cinemas. We therefore advise against using the Movie section.

On top of that, you will get cheap tickets for events regardless of your location in Nigeria. Like other ticketing sites, you can host and manage your event on Ticket Planet. To get started, simply create an account.

We hope you can find affordable and great event tickets using one of these websites. Don’t forget to share this post with your friends and family.
