Live experiences help people cross today’s digital divide and focus on what truly connects us - the here, the now, the once-in-a-lifetime moment that brings us together. To fulfill Gametime’s vision to unite the world through shared experiences, we deliver fans an extraordinary experience for discovering and purchasing last-minute tickets to live events.
With platforms on iOS, Android, mobile web and desktop supporting more than 100,000 events across the US and Canada, we are reimagining the event ticket experience in a mobile-first world.

We built Gametime from the ground up to create mobile access to the best live events. To start we subtracted printing from the equation (rendering mobile access only - no more paper jams!). We also do the hard work of searching for the right options - algorithmically examining thousands of potential tickets and presenting only the best values - not an impossibly long list of options. With payment encrypted and stored on the phone, checkout takes 9 seconds instead of the 5 minutes fans might invest filling out a web form. From our founding in 2012 to launching in over 50 cities today, Gametime continues to put fan experience above all else to unite communities.
