BLACKSBURG – In an effort to provide a more convenient, sustainable and secure gameday experience, Virginia Tech Athletics will transition to mobile tickets for all ticketed athletic events, starting with the 2021 fall sports season.
With the introduction of an enhanced HokieSports mobile app and My Account portal, managing tickets on a mobile device has never been easier. Mobile ticketing will also help provide an additional level of security, guarding against the production of fraudulent and counterfeit tickets.
Beginning with Tech football’s season opener on Friday, Sept. 3, a majority of season tickets and all single game tickets, mini plans, flex tickets, Fan 4-Pack tickets, group tickets and StubHub tickets will be delivered digitally. Lane Stadium and Cassell Coliseum premium seating areas, as well as parking passes, will remain as physical tickets.
“The implementation of mobile ticketing at Virginia Tech is another component of our enhanced fan experience efforts,” said Brad Wurthman, Senior Associate AD for External Operations. “We believe it will allow for a more convenient process for our fans, while providing enhanced safety and security when sharing and scanning tickets at our gates.”

Some key elements of mobile ticketing functionality are listed below:
- Delivery – Once tickets have been added to your account, you will receive email notification and can select the upcoming game.
- Add – Select the game and seats you need, then select to add tickets to your digital wallet. It is recommended that you save your tickets to your mobile device prior to gameday for quick and easy access when at the gates. Virginia Tech is adding mobile hot-spots around the gates to assist with network connection opportunities but downloading tickets in advance is the easiest way to ensure you have them on your phone (and takes as long as finding tickets in a kitchen drawer or glove compartment!).
- Transfer – Use the transfer process to quickly and easily transfer seats to other members of your party for scanning, or if you cannot make it to the game, you can transfer your tickets to friends and family directly from the HokieSports mobile app on your device.
- Present – Pull up your tickets via the digital wallet on your mobile device and simply scan the QR code on each ticket to enter the venue. Each mobile ticket should be kept secure and treated like any other valid ticket.
The transition to mobile ticketing comes on the heels of additional fan experience enhancements at Lane Stadium, including affordable concessions options, beer sales and cashless concession stands. Click here for more information.
