Tigers begin mobile-entry for games this season

By  | 

DETROIT (WILX) -- You won't need a physical ticket the next time you go see the Detroit Tigers play at Comerica Park but you will need your cellphone.

The organization will begin mobile-only entry at the park this season.

Fans will have to download the MLB Ballpark app through the iTunes app or Google Play store to get their tickets.

According to MLB.com, "The digital technology reduces the risk of fraudulent or counterfeit tickets, allows for convenient online transfer and resale of tickets and provides a way for fans to manage their tickets online. Similarly, fans can also use the StubHub app to produce an electronic ticket."

Also, for fans who don't have a smartphone or other device to use for mobile entry, they need to visit the Comerica Park box office to have tickets printed for them on the day of the game. Group tickets will continue to be printed by the club, according to the site.

Chris Granger, group president of sports and entertainment at Ilitch Holdings, Inc. said in a statement, "About half the teams across Major League Baseball will begin mobile-only ticketing during the 2019 season, while over 30 NHL and NBA teams have already made the move." He added, "The industry-wide trend has wide-reaching benefits to fans, including significantly increased convenience and flexibility when it comes to purchasing or transferring tickets to another individual, and adds a uniformed layer of security that ensures your ticket is not fraudulent or counterfeit."

The Tigers join the Red Wings and Pistons who both use mobile-entry for games at Little Caesar's Arena.

The home opener for the Tigers is April 4 vs. the Royals at 1:10 PM.

Here is their schedule for the 2019 season:
