2016-17 Ticketing FAQ

New Jersey Devils & Prudential Center

To accommodate changes being made throughout the ticket industry, and to increase the security of the ticket-buying and event entry process, the New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center will be adopting full digital ticketing over the course of the next few years. Digital tickets help reduce or eliminate fraud and counterfeiting, and help create a safer environment for ticket holders entering the arena.

Starting with the 2016-17 Devils season, PDF tickets will be phased out with the elimination of the "print-at-home" function on Devils Account Manager and Paper tickets will still be available for delivery and pick up at the Prudential Center box office.

For additional information about digital ticketing, please see the FAQ below.


Frequently Asked Questions

Will all events at Prudential Center be using digital tickets?
While we are not entirely eliminating barcodes this year, we are implementing a phased approach starting with New Jersey Devils 2016-17 tickets. Other concerts and events will adopt digital tickets on a rolling basis.

NOTE: Tickets transferred through Devils Account Manager can managed on a computer, but you will need to view tickets on your smartphone to gain access into the arena.


Can I enter the arena with multiple tickets for multiple people using one smartphone?
Yes, as long as everyone is present and enter the arena at the same time. The ticket holder (smartphone holder) can access multiple tickets on their phone and swipe to scan as their friends or family enter after each ticket scan. However, we recommend that you transfer tickets to each person attending the game for easier access into and throughout the arena.


What if my smartphone battery dies or my screen is cracked? 
If your smartphone battery dies before entering the arena, you can visit the Customer Service windows at the Box Office to get your tickets reprinted (proof of purchase and/or identity will be required). Depending on the location and severity of the cracked screen you may have to visit the Box Office to get your tickets reprinted.


Can I still print tickets as a PDF file? 
The "print-at-home" functionality in and Devils Account Manager will no longer exist. The "print-at-home" option will not be available as a delivery method for any ticket purchases.


Why is the "print-at-home" delivery method or "print-at-home" functionality in Devils Account Manager being eliminated? 
When digital ticketing is fully adopted, special paper stock is needed to print paper tickets. The paper you have in your home or office printer cannot encode data as RFID. Therefore, PDFs cannot exist in that ticketing environment. PDF tickets are not secure and can be easily duplicated and/or counterfeited. In preparation for digital ticketing, we will be phasing them out.


By phasing out PDF tickets, do I still have the ability to resell on third party sites of my choice?
Yes, subject to our other terms and conditions on resale. As digital ticketing continues to grow, most platforms have adapted to accommodate digital tickets. However, all third party sites are different, and some still require a PDF or paper ticket and some sites do not provide the buyer's email address for the seller to easily transfer the sold tickets. If paper tickets are needed, you can choose mail delivery during your online purchase.
