NIU to offer mobile ticketing for sporting events
DEKALB, Ill. (AP) — Northern Illinois University sports fans will have a more high-tech way to access game tickets.
University officials say the school will allow cellphone tickets for single game and mini-plan purchases for all of the Huskie's ticketed sports this year.
The school has used mobile ticketing for other events since last December. It replaces the option to print tickets at home.
University officials say mobile ticketing will make it easier to transfer tickets to friends or replace tickets if they get lost or damaged. They add that sports fans will also be able to avoid waiting in lines to pick up tickets on game day.
Those who want traditional paper tickets will still be able to get them by request.
