Seahawks employ digital wristband tickets

The Seattle Seahawks has implemented digital wristbands in place of its single games tickets at its CenturyLink Field home stadium.

The move is an effort to cut down on queues and wait times when entering the venue during home games during the upcoming 2018-19 NFL season.

Fans will need to register for a wristband through a verified fan registration process on the team’s website.

Registration is free of charge and those who go through the process are not required to purchase tickets.

Based on the order of registration, fans will reportedly be emailed an assigned time window to purchase tickets from the CenturyLink Field Northwest Box Office during the public sale event on Monday, July 23 and Tuesday, July 24.

Each Seahawks supporter will be limited to four tickets per digital wristband and each single game ticket will cost $68.

The digital wristbands will be scanned via mobile devices at the box office.

The 69,000-seat CenturyLink Field regularly fills to capacity for Seahawks games, with the average attendance for the 2016-17 season at 69,073.
