The James Madison University Athletic Department introduces the launch of a new digital ticketing system that will provide fans greater convenience and security by scanning bar-coded tickets at Bridgeforth Stadium.

Fans benefit from heightened protection against counterfeit tickets and take advantage of new digital ticketing services, including Ticket Transfer and Print-at Home tickets.

Like most professional venues, JMU will now scan all tickets at the gates of Bridgeforth Stadium using a bar-code on the bottom of each ticket to verify admission. Scanning will help identify counterfeit and stolen tickets, providing Dukes' fans with improved security and service.

Ticket Transfers allows season ticket holders, who encounter scheduling conflicts, to email tickets to another person who then prints out the tickets on-demand. Bar-codes are printed on each transferred ticket and scanners are used at Bridgeforth Stadium entrances to validate the tickets.

With the digital ticket system in place, the JMU Athletic Department requests fans to arrive early to the gates for the first few home games. Arriving early will ensure all fans gain quick access to their seats by avoiding the last minute rush to the gates.

In addition to purchasing and transferring tickets online, fans will be able to print single game tickets from their personal computers. Print-at Home tickets should be printed on white paper using either black or color ink. Each ticket should be printed on 8.5x11-inch paper and treated like any other ticket. For fans security, Print-at-Home tickets are individually bar-coded. The bar-code allows one scan per entry so any attempts to duplicate, alter or sell any copies of the Print-at-Home ticket may result in admittance being refused to the event.
