MU Athletics to stop printing tickets for 2020-21 school year, unveils new ticketing app
(Missourian) - Missouri Athletics ticketing will be going digital for the upcoming sports year, as it announced Monday that ticketing for football and men's and women's basketball games this season will be available on a new smartphone app.
The app, which comes in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, stresses the importance of safety and convenience and will cut down on hand-to-hand contact, a release from the department said.
"The convenience of digital ticketing is something I know our fans have been intrigued by for a long time, and that was confirmed during the focus groups we held as part of the decision-making process," Missouri athletic director Jim Sterk said in the release.
With the change, the department will no longer print or mail game tickets. Fans will also no longer have the option to print PDFs of their tickets at home. However, parking passes will still be printed and mailed.
The release said that attendees who do not have a smartphone or access to the new app will be able to coordinate with Missouri Athletics' ticket office for alternate delivery of their tickets.
The app, which is free of purchase, can be downloaded on both the App Store and Google Play.
