Tickets for games?

Recommended Posts

I went to the Legends Game at Fleetwood during the Summer.

It was easy to get the tickets and print them out at Home and very little cost.

So why can We not have a similar system which would mean not having a £7 delivery fee...or a 1 hour to 2 hour wait for tickets?....Surely it is easy in this day and age?

Am sure hivs do it so you can print at home.

If people print tickets at home they'd expect to be able to do it for free but to have something like that in place would probably mean the club having to pay someone like Ticketmaster for the system.

Maybe I’m stating the obvious but old firm games cunts would just print two tickets off and hope a steward on a turnstile is convinced the barcode won’t scan or something

Forgery could be an issue especially given some of Scotland's creative criminals.  

Places such as cinemas do it but then ask for id validation, that would slow the entry process at games.  

Would also mean little or no control over the hooligan element who invade pitches and are subsequently banned :whistle:

I am sure there is a system in place that once a ticket has been downloaded it cannot be copied

I might be wrong though

Slower than an hour and a half waiting in queue at ticket office?

Think the game at, IIRC, Firhill where some fans missed almost all of the first half.

People could still photoshop them and change bits of the ticket, like fuck up the barcode as KAI said.

No but when you go to print something off it gives you the option first time to print off 2/3/4/5 copies if you want

😂😂 I'm sure the idea of printing more than one copy of tickets has been thought of before now. Printing tickets at home is very popular as is having the bar code on your phone scanned. 

For what it's worth, you can photocopy a ticket's bar code just as easy as you can print 2 copies of tickets off. Same outcome

A printed off ticket would look shite in my stub collection.

Why not just give the fans a longer time period to collect the tickets. The tickets should have been available to collect much earlier than 9 days before the game.

Used print at home to tickets for NFL and NBA and it was quick. Same with concerts, hand scanned at the door. Should be used at Ibrox in future. Probably a question of priorities/money

Would be done in a sandbox environment where you could only print it off once.

Would be easily photocopied, but that has already be covered.

The only time you ever pay £7 delivery is when the games at Hampden & that's purely because they don't do re-prints, it's not a standard cost for delivery of tickets from Rangers!

So even if we did upgrade our system to allow print at home tickets (shite idea btw) you would still get an actual ticket from Hampden for these games, that they still wouldn't do re-prints on & you would still have to pay the £7 delivery fee for!

The risk to innocent punters buying sniders is high. The risk of folk with legit tickets not getting in as folk with fakes have would be high.

So unless the technology is far better than what we have then original tickets like we have with various security measures currently are the most sensible option.

And remember we're discussing other organisations spending money to save fans spending money. Never high on their list of priorities.

You can print off paper tickets for some stadiums in England. I've used my mobile phone plenty of times too overseas.

Much better system - but I would miss collecting ticket stubs.

The problem is the £7. That’s a rip off.

Personally don't think it would work.

For all £7 a game is for a maximum of 4 games a season anyway. If folk object to it that much it's easy enough to pickup.

When it's a large amount of uplifts in shite weather, open a stand and issue them from there.
