MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The Mountaineer Ticket Office has introduced two new features for Mountaineer fans purchasing single game tickets for the upcoming football season. Customers are now able to utilize the new ‘Select Your Seats’ feature on WVUGAME.com and also a new mobile delivery ticket method.

“We are excited to be able to offer these two very convenient options for Mountaineer fans purchasing single game tickets through the Mountaineer Ticket Office,” Director of Athletics Oliver Luck said. “Now fans can select the best available seat of their preference when purchasing tickets online at WVUGAME.com and also will have the option to send tickets directly to their smart phones for admission into Milan Puskar Stadium. I think this is a beneficial next step to upgrading technology around our events.”

West Virginia fans buying single game football tickets will be able to access a new ‘Select Your Seats’ feature on WVUGAME.com.

Fans can utilize a new interactive map and seating chart of Milan Puskar Stadium to select the exact seat location to watch the game. The map also includes pictures of the view from each section to aid in the selection process. Fans can use ‘Select Your Seats’ to find the best seats on the aisle, next to friends or the best available view to watch the Mountaineers.

Swift, simple and secure sums up the new ‘Select Your Seats’ feature and allows Mountaineer fans complete control of their seat selection when shopping online at WVUGAME.com.

After purchasing single game tickets, customers will have the option to receive the tickets via mobile delivery. Mobile ticket delivery is an electronic delivery method by which tickets are e-mailed directly to the consumer immediately after a purchase. The e-mailed tickets are optimized for display on a smart phone device and can be scanned for entry at an event.

The mobile delivery feature can be used to send tickets as PDF files that are formatted for viewing on a smart phone or Apple Passbook files that can be stored as tickets on select Apple devices. PDF attachments may be used on any type of smartphone with a PDF viewer (such as
Apple, Android, Windows, Blackberry, etc). Passbook files may only be used on Apple iPhones with the Passbook app.

Mobile tickets are individually barcoded allowing one scan per entry so any attempts to duplicate, alter, or sell any copies of the mobile ticket may result in admittance being refused to the event. This provides heightened security by identifying counterfeit and stolen tickets.
