Buyer Beware Ticket Info

PPG Paints Arena is unable to honor, replace or refund invalid tickets. Invalid tickets will be confiscated and a report filed. A copy of the tickets/ report provided upon request. PPG Paints Arena strictly prohibits ticket scalping and the resale of tickets.

Tickets can also be purchased through Ticketmaster.

Will Call

Tickets ordered or prepaid can be picked up at the Dick's Sporting Goods Box Office at PPG Paints Arena located in the lobby. Will Call opens one hour prior to events and is accessible through the Highmark Gate. Patrons must present valid photo identification when picking up tickets.

Mobile Ticketing

Why has PPG Paints Arena and the Pittsburgh Penguins gone mobile?
As mobile ticketing becomes more common across multiple industries, we have seen print-at-home usage decline. At the same time, fraud, confusion, and printing issues were frequent with PDF tickets. As a result, to provide a consistent experience to all fans, the decision was made to eliminate PDFs as of July 1, 2018.

New this 2018-2019 Pittsburgh Penguins season, in an effort to ensure a ticketing experience that is more convenient, safe and secure for all Penguins fans, 8 ½ x 11 PDF tickets (print-at-home delivery) will no longer be a valid form of entry for PPG Paints Arena events.

QR codes printed on paper will NOT be accepted.

How do I access my mobile tickets?

If you purchased through Ticketmaster.com:

-Open your Ticketmaster App or visit Ticketmaster using your mobile device
-Login to your Ticketmaster account and locate the order with your ticket(s)

What about non Pittsburgh Penguins Events?
For non Pittsburgh Penguins events at PPG Paints Arena, only Ticketmaster mobile-compatible tickets (generated by Ticketmaster and shown on a mobile device as a QR code, not a standard barcode ) will be accepted.
