As an ardent fan of the National Football League (NFL), you might have found yourself in a situation where you've purchased tickets for a game but can't attend due to unforeseen circumstances. Or you've bought extra tickets as a surprise for friends or family. In such scenarios, the question that naturally arises is, "Are NFL tickets transferable?" The answer is a resounding yes!
The NFL has made transferring your tickets to another person incredibly easy and secure. This process is facilitated through the team's app or your Ticketmaster account. Once you sign into your account, you can select your order in the 'My Events' or 'My Tickets' section. If the option is available, you can tap or click the 'Transfer' button, select the tickets you want to transfer, and enter the recipient's name and email address. It's as simple as that!
When you transfer tickets, the recipient is issued a new barcode that only they can use, ensuring the process is safe and secure. The tickets in your account will no longer be valid for entry, eliminating any chance of duplication or fraud. This feature is powered by Ticketmaster SafeTix™, a unique barcode system that refreshes every few seconds, making it impossible to steal or copy.
But what if you're unable to attend a game and want to sell your tickets instead? The NFL has got you covered there too. The league is unique in having multiple official resale marketplaces, including Ticketmaster, Stubhub, and Seatgeek. These platforms verify the tickets, providing a safe environment for buyers and sellers alike. When you list your tickets for sale, you'll be notified of the commission value, which is either 10% or 15% of the total ticket sale.
It's important to note that screenshots or printouts of tickets are not accepted at NFL games. This is part of the league's efforts to increase security and operational efficiencies. Mobile tickets allow for greater protection against fraudulent tickets, as the trail of a ticket can now be tracked digitally.
If you don't have a smartphone or your phone is broken, you can visit the box office at the venue upon arrival. With your ID and order number handy, you will be issued a physical ticket. Similarly, if you lose your phone, the venue's team will assist you in accessing your tickets.
