A particular feature, called "Ticket Forwarding," allows ticket holders to forward tickets to their friends, family and clients via e-mail. The process can be done up to two-and-one-quarter hours before the game and avoids the need for overnight or in-person delivery. This is accomplished by the use of a unique barcode on each ticket that will be scanned at Lambeau Field gates this season. During the forwarding process, the barcode on the original season ticket is cancelled and a new one is issued electronically. The recipient is sent a new ticket via TicketFast(r) with a unique barcode that can be printed right away.
