RE: UAB Athletics moving to mobile ticketing
The reporter used a poor descriptive of the new procedure. I updated the title of the thread to reflect this:

https://uabsports.com/news/2020/7/21/foo...-fall.aspx

Quote:Beginning with the upcoming 2020-21 year, the UAB Department of Athletics has announced a transition to mobile ticketing for events beginning this fall.

Mobile ticketing has existed for single game tickets and has been a preferred method of delivery with a majority of attendees. Due to recent events, UAB Athletics is expanding the use of mobile ticketing to include season tickets and will provide as a default option for each ticketed athletic event...

In the event fans do not have a mobile device, please contact the UAB Athletics ticket office at 205-975-UAB1 or email tickets@uab.edu.

Paper tickets are something I will miss. I have some old tickets from interesting events I've attended in a collage on the wall. You never know which game may become famous and/or give you a special memory that those tickets on the wall can remind you of.

Really the only thing I’ll miss is the little card with the schedule on it. Otherwise, I’m happy they’ve moved to mobile, tickets tend to just create clutter for me.

The move makes sense, but I'll miss the nostalgia of the physical tickets. Mobile tickets should save the athletic department some money in printing costs.

As long as UAB doesn't have one of its all too common technical glitches with the scanners at the gate.

Agree with this. It's definitely the right move but getting my season ticket packages always brightens my day every year.

Lol they should invest in some better ones if they’re making the move permanent. You’d think the savings on printing 10,000+ season tickets would cover it.

My email included this:

If you do not have a mobile device or one that does not support this technology, please click here and login to your account for information on how to receive your 2020 UAB Football season tickets via mail.

Sounds like paper tix are still an option for those that love them...
But I’m guessing they won’t be as fancy

I haven’t looked at this platform...but typically, mobile tix are very easy to transfer.

I have a lot of tickets that go unused bc I hold out hope that I can make it...by the time I officially can’t, it’s too late to mail. I anticipate that this will mane last minute transfers way easier

RE: UAB Athletics moving to mobile ticketing
I have only done the online for NBA games. So it is good to hear the transfer is easy. Family may not let me go to games because of COVID (I have several issues) so I want to make sure someone is there cheering for the Blazers. I guess my sons will be ther for tech support
