New Digital Ticket System Offers Convenience for Fans
June 24, 2011
The Oregon State Department of Athletics announced Friday the launch of a new digital ticketing system that will provide fans greater convenience and security by scanning bar-coded tickets at most of its athletic events. The new system will make its debut at OSU's season-opening football game against Sacramento State, Sept. 3.
Fans will benefit from heightened protection against counterfeit tickets and will be able to take advantage of new digital ticketing services, including Print-at-Home tickets.
"Like a majority of professional venues, Oregon State will now scan all tickets at the gates of Reser Stadium, Gill Coliseum and Goss Stadium using a bar code on the bottom of each ticket to verify admission," Cecil Hairston, Assistant Athletic Director of Ticket Operations said. "The ability to scan helps indentify counterfeit and stolen tickets, providing Beaver fans with improved security and service."
With the digital ticket system in place, the Oregon State Athletics officials encourage fans to arrive early to the gates for home games. Arriving early will ensure all fans gain quick access to their seats by avoiding the last minute rush to the gates.
Fans will be able to print single game tickets from their office or home computers using the new Print-at-Home feature. Print-at Home tickets should be printed on white paper using either black or color ink. Each ticket should be printed on 8.5x11-inch paper and treated like any other ticket. For fans' security, Print-at-Home tickets are individually bar-coded. The bar-code allows one scan per entry so any attempts to duplicate, alter or sell any copies of the Print-at-Home ticket may result in admittance being refused to the event.
