"Our goal is to really enhance the game experience for all fans," said Maria Troje, Vice President of Customer Service and Retention.

On game days, fans can easily access their tickets through the Wild App. On the Wild homepage, swipe down and select "My Wild Account," then select the game and tap "View barcode" to see your digital tickets.
