Digital Ticketing Set For Beaver Stadium, Rec Hall And Bryce Jordan Center

by on August 07, 2019 4:18 PM

Penn State athletics will continue its digital ticketing push in 2019, implementing digital tickets at Beaver Stadium, Rec Hall and the Bryce Jordan Center.

The news, announced on Wednesday, follows in the path of Pegula Ice Arena's switch to digital ticketing prior to the 2018-19 season and at Panzer Stadium this past spring.

In 2018, Penn State Athletics first announced it would be fully transitioning to digital ticketing at Beaver Stadium for the 2019 season, with all other Penn State Athletics venues going digital in October 2018. Fans can now access tickets on their mobile device via the Ticketmaster app or by downloading them to their mobile wallet.

As a result, print-at-home PDF tickets will no longer be accepted for entry at Penn State home games, a move that the university hopes will help limit the number of counterfeit tickets sold to fans.

Football season ticket holders still received paper tickets. The changes apply to student tickets and single-game tickets.

According to Penn State, the university will work with Ticketmaster and SafeTix™ for all students at upcoming 2019 football games at Beaver Stadium. This new technology is the latest enhancement to Ticketmaster Presence for digital tickets, which provides easy and safe student access while eliminating ticket fraud.

“For more than a decade, Ticketmaster has partnered with Penn State Athletics to create the best sporting event experiences for their fans,” said Tim Martin, senior vice president of college athletics at Ticketmaster, North America. “We’re proud to work with a partner who’s at the forefront of new technology adoption within college athletics. We can’t wait to bring our latest products to Penn State fans at the start of the new season.”

“We are thrilled to broaden our partnership with Ticketmaster,” said Bryan Markiewicz, Penn State interim assistant AD of ticketing & service. “Ticketmaster is the industry leader in ticketing and venue technology and continues to offer Penn State Athletics with the most secure, innovative and solution-oriented products focused on maximizing the fan experience. We’re committed to providing a secure and convenient ticketing experience for our fans.”
