Visitors to the Singapore Sports Hub will soon be able to purchase e-tickets for events using mobile phones with a new integrated ticketing system by Sports Hub Tix.
SINGAPORE: It will soon be a lot easier to buy and collect tickets for events at the Singapore Sports Hub, after an integrated ticketing system was launched on Thursday.
There will be several options for the public to choose from.
Tickets can still be bought over-the-counter at the Singapore Indoor Stadium box office and at selected SingPost outlets as well as over the phone and online.
There will also be a range of options for the collection of tickets. Besides picking them up in person, patrons can choose to print out the tickets at home, or have them mailed or couriered to their doorstep for a fee.
By the end of the year, a paperless mobile system will kick in.
Patrons can purchase e-tickets on their phones and they would just need to scan their devices to gain entry to the venue.
Similar systems are already in place at major sporting venues in North America.
The company offering these ticketing solutions is Sports Hub Tix, an entity of Singapore Sports Hub.
Managing director of Singapore Sports Hub Mark Collins said: "It is the first time that we've combined all of the delivery methods as an option, versus making you choose from a select few. We've given the consumer the ability to choose up to seven.
"There was a lot of research into what ticketing platforms were in the market that were customisable and would be available for us to use in Singapore. Flexibility, consumer-friendly options and expandability, were our three main considerations."
The system will be ready in a week's time, when tickets for internationally-renowned violinist Andre Rieu go on sale.
The performance will be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in April next year.
All ticketed events at the indoor stadium will be sold by Sports Hub Tix, instead of SISTIC.
SISTIC will continue to sell tickets for events at other venues.
