  • Choose the new date
  • Choose your desired time slot
  • Click Request Transfer

What Next?

If you receive a green bar that says: “Your ticket transfer is complete. New tickets will be emailed to you shortly.”

  • Check your email. Your new tickets will be delivered in the next 10 – 15 minutes.

If you receive a green bar that says: “Your transfer request has been submitted. Please wait until our support team reviews it. Thank you!”
