WHAT ARE MOBILE TICKETS?
Mobile tickets are delivered in a Passbook or Digital Wallet format specifically designed for smartphones. Mobile tickets are emailed directly to you immediately after purchase. You will receive two emails after your purchase - one will be your tickets that can be scanned on your smartphone or added to Passbook and the second email will be your order confirmation email, which does not include actual tickets.
Once tickets are viewable, the ticket office will send you an email with a link to log in at griffinshockey.com/account. You will be able to select the designated game.
Click on the button to add to your digital wallet before leaving your home. It is recommended that you save your tickets on your phone to ensure quick and easy access to your tickets when at the gates.
If you can’t make it to the event, you can TRANSFER your tickets to friends and family directly from your phone.
Pull up your mobile ticket via the Apple Wallet or Google Pay app on your phone. As you approach the gate, simply place your phone near a reader to scan. Each mobile ticket should be kept secure and treated like any other valid ticket.
Your mobile tickets will be delivered via email or text, depending on your selection during the checkout process.

What are mobile tickets?
Mobile Tickets are similar to traditional event tickets, but they are easier to use and more secure. You simply add your ticket(s) to your Apple Wallet or Google Pay app on your smartphone and easily access them when you arrive at the arena. You will see a QR code that will be scanned for admittance.
How do I manage my tickets? Can I manage my tickets on my computer instead of my mobile device?
Managing your tickets is easy through your ticket account. Simply log in using your account number or email address to re-issue, transfer, or post your tickets for resale on StubHub (COMING SOON). Your ticket account can be accessed on any device (smartphone, computer, or tablet) with a working internet connection.
Why did I receive two emails?
After your ticket purchase, you will receive two separate emails. The first will be your confirmation email, laying out the details of your purchase. The second will contain your digital tickets for you to download to your Apple Wallet or (Android) Google Pay mobile device.
Can I print my Mobile tickets?
No. Mobile tickets are not meant to be printed, and, likely, a printed Mobile ticket will not scan at the gate. If this is the case, you will be sent to the box office for assistance.
What if I cannot find the email the tickets were delivered in?
Tickets are sent via email from email@example.com with the subject line: “Your Mobile Tickets Have Arrived”. If you delete or can no longer find the email, simply login to your ticket account to re-issue tickets to yourself.
Why have I not receive my tickets yet?
1. Make sure you have used the correct email address.
2. Check your junk or spam mail folder.
3. Adjust your spam guard and junk mail settings to receive emails with attachments.
4. Add our email address, firstname.lastname@example.org to your list of trusted email addresses.
5. Please allow at least 1 hour for your emails to arrive.
First-Time User Activation: I can’t find my PIN, how do I access my online account?
Every ticketing account has a PIN assigned to it. This number allows a customer to activate his/her online ticketing account. PINs are only used the first time a customer activates an online ticketing account. Once the online account is established, future account sign-ins are made with the customer-selected password.
If you have never activated your online account and cannot find your PIN, please call us at (616) 774-4585, chat online, or email us at email@example.com. If you have activated your online account and cannot remember your password, you can have the password sent to your registered email address.
Will parking be mobile as well?
The Grand Rapids Griffins will not be delivering physical parking passes. More information on accessing, managing, and using your parking pass(es) will be released soon.
Can I have multiple tickets on the same mobile device?
Yes, you can swipe through your available tickets at the venue if the entire party is present. However, if your party is entering at different gates/times, you must send each attendee their individual ticket.
What if I do not have an iPhone or Android mobile device?
You can visit the box office on the day of the event to receive printed tickets after showing a valid ID or make prior arrangements with the Griffins ticket office by calling (616) 774-4585.
