Can’t you just put the ticket in your digital wallet so you don’t have bandwidth issues
My big problem is I don’t have a 12 year old kid next door to help me do that!
I still have my Game 3 ticket for UF-LSU in 2017 Omaha. Think I will get to use it one day???
Not necessarily. Just have to surrender your iphone with the sale.
Are they upset about not getting any more?
Scalpers will still be able to sell. That is part of the reason they are doing it. They will be able to track EVERYONE that has the ticket at one point.
The next step will be going completely cashless at all games. Every concession transaction will be with a credit/debit card or “touchless” using NFC. The Dolphins are already doing this.
While I agree the nostalgia of having a physical ticket is neat... it’s just not worth the cost, and the majority of people prefer digital. Unless you’re prepared to donate silly money to the UAA and make this issue a priority... it’s not going to stop.
The Tampa Bay Rays went cashless at their home games last year, too.
Depends on how much it would cost. I'd absolutely be tempted...
FSU went cashless. But that’s only because no fans attend their games
If there is sufficient demand they could put Game specific traditional “tickets” Into a game-day souvenir vending machine. Like buying a baseball card. Maybe you could enter you own seat number for it to print. Wouldn’t get anyone into a game obviously. That would be the electronic ticket.
Will it come with the gum?
I have quite the collection of Gator tickets from over the years Bucs an UCF as well. I could cover the wall with them.
I took my little boy to his first NFL game a couple years back in Jax to see our Dolphins. I still have the ticket from 1982 when my dad took me to my first game. Our tickets were just printed on paper at home. terrible. Some guys in the parking lot heard me talking and had a really nice club level glossy ticket nd gave it to me to save for my son. Last year when I took him to his first Lightning game up here in Raleigh, same thing...all digtal. Same with his first Rays game at the Trop.
Its not cool IMO.
Have every home game ticket since 1970, and a few from earlier.
Also every FSU game since 1970, most Fl Ga, and a ton of bowl and away games
I was also wondering about that. That's how I get the majority of my tickets, and I don't trust anyone to send me something electronically... how will we know that it hasn't already been used for someone else to get in the stadium?
Stubhub used to work like a champ for me back when I held season tix in Tampa, Orlando and up here. It really helped and made the games I attended essentially free. Plus it it inspired a couple of neighbor kids to to choose college. Paying it forward as it were, and their parents thanked me profusely. Mission accomplished. Now I'm to old for that stuff and the 45 inch HD TV works pretty well, and I don't have to pay for parking. Plus, the food off my grill blows the doors off of the food cart and it is a whole lot cheaper.
Home Opener. No tickets for this one, but what if you could have a printed ticket?
You can see the animation here...
I have shoeboxes full of tickets from not only Gator Games, but all kinds of sporting events, Broadway plays, plane tickets. golf badges (including the Masters and the The Open at Troon), etc. Sometimes I just go through them to help me realize how blessed my life has been.
