Sporting Kansas City will move to a mobile-only ticketing system at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas, ahead of the 2019 season.
Conducted in tandem with SeatGeek, the official ticketing partner of Sporting KC, mobile-only entry at Children’s Mercy Park will see fans exclusively use their smartphones to scan into matches.
This paperless practice, already adopted by over 80 percent of Sporting KC season ticket members last season, will enhance ticket security, support green initiatives like Sporting Sustainability, and make it easier for fans to send, sell, receive and manage their tickets.
Entry to 2019 Swope Park Rangers matches at Children’s Mercy Park will also be mobile only.
Fans new to the mobile ticketing experience can create an account on SeatGeek.com or by downloading the SeatGeek app on the App Store and Google Play.
Supporters are also encouraged to link their SeatGeek account to the Sporting KC app for personalized offers and future rewards. To ensure a seamless ticketing experience, ticket holders should use the same registration email in both the SeatGeek and Sporting KC apps.
Supporters can access their Sporting KC tickets through the SeatGeek app, the SeatGeek mobile desktop site and the Sporting KC app. Tickets can then be stored in the Apple or Google Wallet before fans arrive at the stadium gates.
