Registered users will be notified of available seating and experience inventory via text alert.
“We are very pleased to offer our fans this new, convenient way to upgrade their experience at Blue Jackets games,” said Marc Gregory, vice president of digital marketing & media for the Blue Jackets. “Moving to an upgraded seat location during a game, or having access to a unique behind-the-scenes experience is now easily available to our fans on their mobile devices.”
