For further assistance, contact Rangers Fan Services at 972-RANGERS x2 for assistance.

What is Ticket Forwarding?

How do I forward a ticket?

From the Wallet tab, tap on a game to access a list of your tickets. At the bottom of the list, tap "Forward Ticket” and select the ticket(s) you wish to forward. Then choose “Select From Contacts,” “Via Email,” or “Share Link.” Selecting "Forward Ticket" again prompts you to enter an email address or choose a friend from your device’s contact list.

No. At this time, "My Rangers Tickets" contacts will not automatically link to the MLB Ballpark app. However, the MLB Ballpark app will automatically link to the contact list on your mobile device.

A unique link, consider this the key to your ticket(s), will be generated and you can distribute how you wish. Be mindful of sharing this generated link with multiple recipients because the first user to click that link will complete the forwarding process and will get the ticket(s).

What if I accidentally send the ticket to the wrong email address?

You can easily cancel a ticket forward that is in a pending state. You can recall it directly from your list of tickets inside the Wallet tab. After doing this, you can then resend the ticket to the correct email address.

How will my recipient know I forwarded tickets?

Both you and the recipient will receive an email that notifying a ticket forward has been initiated. The recipient will have a unique link in the email to accept the ticket. If you select "Share Link," the recipient will receive the notification by whatever method you selected to send the link.

How do I accept a ticket forward?

You must click "Accept" from the email invitation you received. If you do not already have the MLB Ballpark app on your supported iOS or Android device, you will be prompted to download the app.

I do not have a supported iOS or Android device. Can I still accept a ticket forward?

Yes. You can accept and receive your tickets in a standard web browser. Once a ticket forward has been accepted, contact Rangers Fan Services at 972-RANGERS x2.

What if the email address where I received the ticket forward is not the same as the email address associated with my MLB account?

The email address you received your tickets does not need to match the email address associated with your MLB account, but you will be required to click the link in the email to which the ticket was forwarded.

Can I reject a ticket forward?

Yes. To reject a forwarded ticket, go to the Ticket Accept webpage and select the option: "I do not want to accept this ticket." This webpage is accessible only from the ticket forward email sent to the recipient. The sender of the forwarded ticket(s) will be informed that the invitation was rejected and will continue to have access to the ticket(s) in their MLB Ballpark app.

If I receive a forwarded ticket, can I re-forward that ticket to another recipient?

Yes. A ticket can be forwarded again. Each time a ticket is forwarded the two participants, the sender and the recipient, will receive a notification of this transaction.

Can I cancel a Rangers ticket forward?

Yes. The sender can cancel a ticket forward any time before the barcode has been scanned. This can be accomplished from the Wallet tab by selecting an individual ticket and tapping "Cancel" or by clicking on the Ticket Forward icon at the top of the Wallet tab. Select the specific ticket then choose "Cancel Forward." The recipient of the ticket you forwarded will be notified.

Can I cancel or recall a Rangers ticket forward after it has been accepted?

Yes. The original ticket sender can cancel or recall a ticket after it has been accepted. The sender and recipient will be notified by email of this action and the ticket will disappear from the recipient's Wallet tab. However, once the ticket has been scanned for entry the ticket cannot be recalled.

Can I cancel a Rangers ticket forward after it has been accepted and re-sent?

Yes. As long as the ticket has not been scanned for entry, the original ticket owner can cancel the forward regardless of how many times it has been forwarded. The sender and original recipient will be notified by email of this action, and the ticket will disappear from the Wallet Tab and the My Rangers Tickets account of the user who last held the ticket.

Can I forward multiple Rangers tickets to a single account?

Yes. Tickets can be sent together from the same event or one ticket at a time.

Where can I find the status of all Rangers Ticket Forwards?

Find the Ticket Forward icon at the top of the Wallet tab. There, you will find all tickets associated with your account that have been received or forwarded.

What if I never received the Ticket Forward email?

If you are expecting to receive a ticket forward, but you have not been notified by email, contact the sender. The sender can cancel the current ticket forward and resend it to you by email or a shared link. If you or the sender are still having difficulties, contact us at 972-RANGERS x2.

If I contact Fan Services, can they forward tickets via the MLB Ballpark app on my behalf?

No. If you wish to provide tickets to friends or family, contact Fan Services to discuss your Will Call options.

If the person I forward tickets to deletes the email they received to accept the ticket(s) before they click "Accept," what should I do?
