The Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) is pleased to announce an electronic ticketing system that will see football fans purchasing advance match tickets through their mobile phones from anywhere across the country.
In a statement, the PSL said the system is accessible anytime for scheduled matches, improves match-day planning and is designed to enhance the overall customer convenience and experience for our football matches.
The PSL will this weekend implement a trial run e-ticketing platform for the match-day 12 fixture between Highlanders FC and Dynamos FC match to be played at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday 16 June 2019, adding that the system will further be rolled out across all Harare and Bulawayo matches from match-day 13.
To purchase Castle Lager PSL tickets, fans can dial the USSD code *127# and follow the prompt messages that follow.
The system allows fans to choose the match they want to watch and the number of tickets they wish to purchase.
After payment confirmation, a message with a unique ticket ID will be sent to the user containing the match details.
The PSL encouraged fans to purchase their tickets before arrival at the stadium to avoid congestion.
“Verification and validation of tickets will be done at the entry gates upon presentation of the unique ticket ID number received via SMS upon purchase of the ticket (You can write down the ticket ID or memorise it without need to bring your mobile phone), fans may also purchase tickets on behalf of others and send them the relevant Ticket ID to present at the gates,” read part of the statement.
The e-ticketing system is currently configured to Econet subscribers only.
However, plans are currently underway to roll out the system to other subscribers as well as other forms of payment.
