Minnesota Vikings Will No Longer Use Paper Tickets
The Minnesota Vikings are making the move away from paper tickets and will only accept electronic tickets starting this fall.
Jeff Anderson from the Vikings told the Star Tribune that the team is making the move for several reasons, he says that " nearly 50 percent of Vikings tickets are transferred from their original owner to another fan before games, so electronic tickets will allow the team to know exactly who’s coming to games — as well as provide more personalized information about things like ticket lines, wayfinding inside U.S. Bank Stadium and concessions."
Electronic tickets also provide higher security as they are harder to counterfeit. Fans will still be able to sell their tickets on secondary markets like StubHub and will not be forced to use a service the Vikings provide, at this point anyway.
