Detroit Tigers move toward mobile-only ticketing for 2019

The Detroit Tigers are going paperless with the franchise’s ticketing. The MLB team will join the increasing number of teams going exclusively to mobile apps for entry to games.

For 2019, the Tigers will accept tickets on the Major League Baseball Ballpark app or StubHub, an MLB partner for entry to Comerica Park. Individuals without a smart phone can still get printed tickets at the ballpark box office on game day. For group sales tickets will continue to be printed.

Chris Granger, group president of Illitch Holdings, which owns the Tigers and the Detroit Red Wings said, “We have been extensively testing mobile ticketing at both Comerica Park and Little Caesars Arena over the last few years, and have received positive feedback from sports fans and concert goers.”

Fellow Illtich Holdings-owned team, the Detroit Red Wings have already moved toward this model for entry to Little Caesars Arena.
