When can I expect to see my tickets in the app?
You should expect to see your match tickets in your app 72 hours before the match, please email email@example.com if you cannot see them. Please ensure that you are signed in using the same email address that you bought the tickets on.

Can I still link accounts and purchase tickets for family and friends?
Yes, you can link accounts and purchase tickets for partnered accounts. However, the tickets will only be present on the purchaser’s account on the App. This means that if all parties are arriving separately then the lead purchaser is advised to print the PDF version of the E-Tickets and distribute them before the Matchday in question. If everyone is arriving together, then simply pass the mobile device backwards at the turnstile as you scan each code on arrival.
I have purchased tickets for myself and other people in my network. will all of the e-tickets b e in my app or will everyone have their own in their apps?
All of the ticket barcodes will be present on the purchaser’s account on the App. As mentioned above, if parties are arriving separately then the lead purchaser is advised to print the PDF version of the E-Tickets and distribute them before the Matchday in question. If everyone is arriving together, then simply the main contact scans each person’s barcode for them to walk through.
Can I forward season tickets to other people’s apps?
This is not possible at this stage. All tickets will be present in the purchaser’s account on the App.
Can I use a screenshot of the season ticket barcode within my app at the turnstiles?
No, screenshots will not be accepted as the software won’t pick up the barcodes.
If I have purchased several tickets and we are travelling/arriving at different times how can i distribute the tickets?
All of the ticket barcodes will be present on the purchaser’s account on the App. If parties are arriving separately then please ask the purchaser to print the PDF version of the Etickets (from the email sent) and pass them on before arriving at the turnstiles. If everyone is arriving together, then simply the main contact scans each persons barcode for them to walk through.
Do I need to have WI-FI connection to present the ticket barcode at the turnstile?
You do not need WI-FI to present your ticket, but you do need to log into the app before the match day when you are on WI-FI to enable your E-Tickets to appear in the App. Once you can see your ETicket in the App, you will be able to present it at the turnstile on the relevant matchday with no WIFI.
Is there a cut off date to purchase ticket to be displayed in-app?
Supporters who wish to use E-Tickets are recommended to buy their tickets at least 48hours before the game, as the functionality can incur issues with download times (maximum wait time is 24hours). You must log into your account on the Official Swans App before the day of the match and check that your E-Tickets are present. As stated previously, this can take up to 24hours after purchasing your E-Ticket online.
What do I do if my battery is running low or goes down on my mobile and I have my e-ticket on my official swans app?
Battery levels are the responsibility of the mobile owner and if you arrive to the Liberty Stadium with no battery you will need to go straight to the ticket office for them to check your ticket hasn’t been used. They will then print you a hard copy for you to present at the turnstile. This of course will take time, so please try and ensure you give as much time as possible for this to be done before kick-off. We therefore strongly urge you to ensure your battery levels are sufficient prior to attending the Swansea.com Stadium.
Do you have charging points within the stadium?
We do not have charging points within the stadium, so please ensure your phone is sufficiently charged prior to your visit.
I attend with a personal assistant, where will their e-ticket be?
As with linked accounts, all of the tickets will be present on the purchaser’s account on the App which includes the ticket assigned for the personal assistant.
I have children coming to the game with me, where will their e-ticket be?
As with linked accounts and personal assistants, child’s tickets will appear on the purchaser’s account on the App.
Will my app display tickets for tickets I have bought for past games?
All past match tickets will be displayed as “STUBS”.
I have also received an email with tickets attached. Can I take a photo of that barcode and use that for entry?
No, you have to bring the actual printed PDF version for entry as the scanner will not pick up screenshots of any kind.
The brightness on my screen is always at 20%, will the scanners read it?
We have built a piece of software which will automatically boost your brightness in the App when you click on the ticket to present it at turnstiles. This is to ensure that the brightness of supporters’ mobile devices is always at the maximum when presenting their E-Ticket. When you come out of the E-Ticket, it will automatically drop back to your adjusted brightness setting.
I have a cracked screen, will the barcode work?
The E-Ticket barcode needs to be fully visible on the screen for the functionality to work. In this event, we would expect it not to be readable and therefore, supporters should make alternative plans for their ticket format.
Can I buy a ticket at the ticket office and have it in my app?
In-app ticketing is only available when you purchase a ticket online from www.eticketing.co.uk/swanstickets for Swans Home matches.
Is this functionality accessible with screen reading software?
We are currently testing this functionality and will communicate all testing results to customers in the near future.
Can I buy hospitality tickets and display them in my official Swans App?
Hospitality tickets are not yet ready for in-app ticketing. We will communicate this development in due course.
Will my loyalty cash and/or Jack Army membership be displayed in the App too?
Loyalty Cash and Jack Army Memberships are features which are not yet ready for in-app ticketing. We will communicate developments on either of these in due course.
What match ticket can be purchased to appear on my mobile device?
Any Swansea City football match in the Swansea.com Stadium can be purchased and used within the Official Swans App. For clarity, no away fixtures will be displayed as we sell away tickets on behalf of the respective club/venue.
What fees are charged for this functionality?
Downloading the Official Swans App is free. You will only be charged for the cost of the ticket you are buying and a booking fee of £1.25 per ticket on the e-ticketing site.
I’m still having issues. What can I do?
Supporters are first advised to close the App completely, restart it and log back in if needed. Please also ensure you have selected the “E-Ticket” delivery option when purchasing your ticket online. If the problem persists, please contact the ticket office on 01792 616400 at your earliest convenience.
