Starting with the 2022-23 season, ALL tickets to Knoxville Ice Bears home games will be digital in order to offer added convenience for fans, avoid ticket fraud and improve security. Tickets can be managed through Ticketmaster on one’s smartphone device. Ticketmaster accounts are free and allow users to manage, view or even transfer their tickets in a safe and secure fashion. The Ticketmaster App is available for download on the App Store or Google Play.

We understand not all of our fans own a smartphone. We also understand not everyone is used to managing tickets digitally. In an effort to accommodate each one of our fans’ individual needs and concerns, please don’t hesitate to call our staff at (865) 525-7825 with any questions you may have regarding digital ticketing or see Frequently Asked Questions.

Here’s a helpful video, courtesy of Ticketmaster, on how to access tickets on your mobile device.

What is mobile entry?

Mobile Entry is the easiest and safest way to access tickets to your events.

When your event is Mobile only – your mobile phone is your ticket.

NOTE: For mobile entry tickets, you will only be able to access your tickets on your phone.  They will not be available to print from your online account, nor can they be emailed to you.

How To Access Your Ticket(s):

  1. Open your Ticketmaster App or visit Ticketmaster using your mobile internet.
  2. Login to your Ticketmaster account and locate the order with your ticket(s).
  3. Tap and show. Your phone will be scanned for entry and you’re in!

NOTE: Your ticket’s barcode will change every ten seconds to ensure security. SCREENSHOTS OF TICKETS WILL NOT SCAN AT THE GATE AND WILL NOT ALLOW ENTRY!

NOTE: While you can access your tickets on your Ticketmaster App, it is advised you download your tickets to your smartphone’s wallet app prior to arrival so you will not require Wi-Fi access in order to scan your tickets. Downloading your tickets to your smartphone from the Ticketmaster App is the best way to ensure efficient entry into the Civic Coliseum.

Transferring Tickets

Transfer with the Ticketmaster App

  1. Open the Ticketmaster App and sign in to your account.

If you receive your tickets through our “Ticket Transfer” feature, you’ll receive an email with instructions to accept your tickets. From your mobile phone, click on the “Accept Tickets” button and login to your Ticketmaster account. Or, if you don’t have a Ticketmaster account, you can create a new one to accept your tickets.

Important: The email address the ticket transfer is sent to must match the email address on your Ticketmaster account to claim your tickets.
We always suggest practicing safe ticket shopping and management. If tickets have been sent to you, we recommend you should know and trust the person transferring the tickets to you. If the tickets were obtained fraudulently by the person transferring them, they may be canceled at any time.
