Swans first in UK football to launch in-app season tickets
Following the successful launch of in-app ticketing for home matchday tickets, we are pleased to announce that this has now been extended for our season ticket holders.
Developed in conjunction with our partners Sports Alliance, Other Media and Ticketmaster, the new season in-app ticketing option is believed to be the first of its kind available for football clubs in the UK.
It means Swans fans with a season ticket will be able to display their season card on their mobile phones at the turnstile to gain entry to all football fixtures at the Liberty Stadium.
Season cards will also remain fully operational going forward as an additional option and fans are encouraged to bring their card for the next game against Norwich City on November 24 as a back-up option while we continue to test the new in-app functionality.
“WE’VE BEEN INFORMED THAT WE ARE THE FIRST FOOTBALL CLUB IN THE UK TO INTRODUCE IN-APP SEASON-TICKETS WHICH IS AN ADDED BONUS FOR THE CLUB AND OUR FANS,” EXPLAINED SWANSEA CITY’S HEAD OF DIGITAL REBECCA SYMMONS.
