Louisiana Tech will move to mobile ticketing for the 2020-21 athletic seasons in order to increase flow through the gates, provide contactless points of entry, and improve health and safety for all fans at Bulldog and Lady Techster home games.

The transition to mobile ticketing provides a contactless entry, which is the fastest and healthiest way to enter a stadium. Fans simply need to download tickets to their phone and have their barcode scanned upon entry. Mobile ticketing eliminates the risk of misplacing paper tickets and alleviates the wait to purchase at the box office.

“Mobile ticketing will provide our fans with the safest and fastest method of entry into all of our athletic venues.” Director of Athletics Tommy McClelland remarked. “We are excited to move more into the digital age and help our fan base transition every step of the way.”

Fans will be able to access both single game and season tickets through the Louisiana Tech Athletics app, am.ticketmaster.com/latech, or their email. Ticket purchases will take place online, and fans can immediately transfer their tickets to friends and family. There is also a print-at-home option for fans without a smartphone through their online account and email.

The transition to mobile ticketing requires fans to have up-to-date email addresses associated with their ticket accounts. Fans are encouraged to log in to their accounts at am.ticketmaster.com/latech in order to update their information. They can also call 318-257-3631 or email techtickets@latech.edu.

Additional information about how to access mobile tickets, including a step-by-step guide, will be available at latechsports.com/ mobile-ticketing. The Louisiana Tech Athletic Department will also continue to collect FAQs and create instructional videos to provide a smooth transition into mobile ticketing.

Louisiana Tech is also partnering with DigitalSeat to upgrade its game programs as well as other interactive gameday elements. Programs will also be available online or through scanning QR codes, which will be located on every seat in Joe Aillet Stadium and the Thomas Assembly Center.

The option to scan a QR code will immediately connect fans to the program, regardless of their cell service or WiFi connectivity within Joe Aillet Stadium or the Thomas Assembly Center. New programs will include additional features like access to live statistics and special in-game offers.
