Stanford, CA - November 8, 2007 - Attending a Stanford athletic event, and sharing the experience with friends and family, just got easier with today's announcement that Cardinal fans can take advantage of Ticket Transfer, Ticket Gift Back and Print-At-Home features of the Cardinal Digital Ticketing Services for free. All service charge fees when using these features will be waived for those sports in which an admission fee is charged. Coupled with the recent announcement of an "open admission" policy to many of its athletic events, Stanford Athletics continues to make attending an athletic event more convenient and accessible to its fans.
Ticket Transfer and Ticket Gift Back Features
The Ticket Transfer and Ticket Gift Back features of the Cardinal Digital Ticketing Services program allow ticket holders to share tickets with other Cardinal fans or donate unused tickets back to the athletic department electronically. Additionally, through the Print-At-Home feature, fans can instantly receive tickets via email and conveniently print them from home rather than meeting face-to-face for an exchange.
While Stanford fans can already purchase tickets online, the Ticket Transfer and Ticket Gift Back features provide greater convenience for fans while ensuring support of Stanford Football, Men's and Women's Basketball, Baseball and Women's Volleyball so that season tickets never go unused. Cardinal fans simply select tickets they cannot use and transfer them to friends and family online or donate them back to the athletic department.
"For fans that cannot attend all home games, the Ticket Transfer and Ticket Gift Back features offer a convenient solution allowing fans the opportunity to make the most of their unused tickets," said The Jaquish & Kenninger Director of Athletics Bob Bowlsby. "For Stanford, this is a great opportunity to maintain team support by helping fill seats."
The Ticket Transfer and Ticket Gift Back features are currently available to season ticket holders in football, men's and women's basketball, women's volleyball and baseball. Ticket Transfers must be completed two hours prior to game time and Ticket Gift Backs must be returned to athletics 48-hours prior to each game. To access Ticket Transfer or Ticket Gift Back, season ticket holders should log into their online customer accounts at /ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=30600&ATCLID=208444373.
Print-At-Home Eliminates Will Call Lines and Drive Time
Once tickets are transferred online, the expediency of the Print-At-Home feature eliminates the time it takes for season ticket holders to deliver tickets to friends and family. Rather than standing in long Will Call lines or driving across town to deliver tickets, the Print-At-Home feature allows recipients of transferred tickets to print tickets on a home or office printer. There are no associated fees to the sender or the transfer recipient to use the Print-At-Home feature.
The tickets can be printed on standard 8.5x11-inch paper. The Print-At-Home ticket will include a unique barcode, which is scanned upon stadium entry. For security, the barcode allows only one scan per entry, eliminating any attempts to duplicate, alter or sell copies of the Print-At-Home ticket.
