The tickets are fully transferrable and can be sent digitally to friends and family. The digital tickets will be available approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the event and can be transferred via an app, allowing individuals to hold and display their own tickets. The name of the ticket purchaser will be displayed on the ticket, but this will not restrict use of the ticket and it is not necessary for the original ticket purchaser to be in attendance at the event.
