Oregon now using scratch-and-sniff tickets
By Chantel Jennings
In case you’ve ever walked to a football stadium on a Saturday and thought to yourself, “Man, I’m really excited for the football game and spending time with friends, but I’m disappointed that my game ticket smells like a ticket” … then Oregon has the ticket for you.
On Wednesday night, the Ducks’ ticket Twitter handle tweeted a photo of a scratch-and-sniff ticket that will be available this fall for season-ticket holders. And what exactly will Oregon football tickets smell like? Carl’s Jr. burgers.
A few thoughts:
1. Is making a Ducks ticket smell like cow/beef a little sacrilegious? Or no?
2. It took eight years to go from a foil ticket to a textured ticket but just two years to go from a hologram to a scented ticket? What does that say about science?
3. Where does one possibly go with tickets after venturing into scratch-and-sniff?
What are your thoughts? If your Pac-12 school were to do something similar, what restaurant or company do you think it should (or would) use? Comment on the story or tweet the #4pac here to let us know.
