Say you are planning on organizing a sports event. It could be football, cricket, or any such activity. And you want to ensure that the event is organized in a smooth and seamless way.

To do that, you will have to ensure a hassle-free experience for the attendees. And here are a couple of challenges you'll need to consider:

Unauthorized entries: Unauthorized entries or trespassing is one of the most common challenges faced in events. And it is your responsibility to ensure that no unauthorized entries are granted to

the event. Such entries do not only cause a security risk to the event but also translate into a loss of business

Contactless arrangements: Ever since the pandemic has hit the world, contactless arrangements have become the norm. And to ensure the safety of your guests, you'd like to adopt safety measures too

The guest entry tickets can help you do just that. Rather than giving paper-based tickets to the attendees, you might like to look for digital alternatives.

A secure and fast check-in: Since you are organizing a sporting event, you'd have hundreds or thousands of attendees. And validating the ticket for each one of them would take a lot of time leading to long queues at the entry gate

Ticket Generator

Now this is something you would like to avoid as much as possible. It will not only go against the practice of social distancing but will also deteriorate the guest experience.

In this article, we'll tell you a one-stop solution to all the three problems we just discussed. Keep reading to know more.

A. QR Code-based Sports tickets to your rescue

QR Code-based tickets act as a convenient, efficient sports ticket maker that can help you easily manage, validate, and control entries to the sports event. Here is how it can help you meet your objectives:

1. Bulk generation of unique tickets

You can create as many tickets as you need. Each ticket produced by the sports event ticket maker comes furnished with a QR Code. This QR Code has a unique ID encoded in it.

When scanned by the authorized personnel, the ticket reveals if it's a valid, invalid, or duplicate entry.

Since each ticket has a unique QR Code, it cannot be forged. This leaves no room for any unauthorized entries to the event.

2. Ticket distribution

These sports tickets can be handed out to your guests in print or sent via email, SMS, or both.

All that they'd need to do is show the ticket on their phones, get it validated, and enter the sports event. It's that simple.

3. Ticket validation

The tickets can be validated real quick. All that you need to do is install the ticket validator app, scan the QR Code on the ticket, and grant the entry.

It doesn't take more than two seconds to see if a ticket is valid or not. Here's what you'd see on performing a scan:

Ticket Validation

Since the whole process is quick, it would ensure that there are no long queues at the entry gate. And what's even better is that you can appoint and multiple event coordinators to validate the tickets. Doing this would speed up the guest validation process further.

All three processes ticket generation, distribution, and validation are contactless. Hence, it is a contactless technology that can help ensure your guest's safety despite a pandemic.

4. Event analytics

These tickets also offer analytical data. This data gives you valuable insights into your event and guests. It could be event attendance, the total number of new, used, expired, invalid, duplicate tickets, tickets validated per coordinator, and the total number of re-entries allowed.

With these metrics, you can comprehend precisely how your sports event performed.

5. Event registration

Using your sports ticket maker, ticket generation doesn't solely lie in your hands. Tickets can be created in real-time as you secure a registration using the Ticket Registration feature.

Here's a quick rundown of how it operates:

  • You use Ticket Generator to create an event and set-up event registration form for the guests
  • Guests fill the form
  • You approve their submission and they receive the required ticket automatically
