Nebraska announces change to mobile ticketing
The University of Nebraska is taking the same step many athletic departments around the country have taken.
On Monday, the athletic department announced that it will introduce a mobile-only ticketing procedure for the upcoming academic year. Fans will have access to parking and tickets through a mobile app.
Nebraska makes the change as the country continues to battle the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The school plans to use contactless entry to all fall sporting events in an effort to meet safety protocols. Print-at-home options for tickets will not be available for this year.
Several other schools have also taken this plunge.
Along with the ticketing changes, Nebraska also announced that no decision on capacity at Memorial Stadium has been announced at this time. A few months ago, athletic director Bill Moos suggested somewhere between 20 and 30 percent of the venue’s capacity would be permitted into games, but no numbers have been finalized.
There has still been no concrete decision made on the 2020 college football season.
