Having a verified fan status on Ticketmaster can provide you with access to presales and other benefits when buying tickets. Here are some tips on how to prove you are a verified fan if needed:
Check Your Ticketmaster Account
The easiest way to prove you are a verified fan is to log into your Ticketmaster account. If you have gone through the verification process for a particular event, artist, or team, you should see a “Verified Fan” status on your account homepage or in your verified events list.
For example, if you are a verified fan for Taylor Swift’s upcoming tour, you may see something like “Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour – Verified Fan” on your account. This status indicates you have been verified for that event.
Verify Your Email Address
When you register as a verified fan, Ticketmaster will send you a verification email to the address associated with your account. Keep this email as proof that you completed the verification steps.
The verification email will contain details like the event name, artist, venue, and date. It will confirm that your status as a verified fan has been activated.
Check Your Verified Fan Dashboard
Ticketmaster has a Verified Fan dashboard you can access to see if you have been verified for any events. To find it:
- Go to Ticketmaster.com and log into your account
- Click on your name in the top right corner
- Select “Verified Fan” from the drop-down menu
This will show you a list of any events you have verified for. It will specify whether verification is “Complete” or still “Pending.”
Look for Confirmation on the Event Page
When you are a verified fan for a specific event, you may see a notification on the event’s Ticketmaster page. Log into your account and go to the event page to check.
You should see a message indicating you have access to the presale as a verified fan. This serves as confirmation your verification was successful.
Contact Ticketmaster Support
If you cannot find indication anywhere in your account that you are a verified fan, reach out to Ticketmaster Fan Support:
- Phone: 1-800-653-8000 (US) or the number for your country
- Online support form: https://www.ticketmaster.com/contactus
- Direct Message on Twitter: @Ticketmaster
Explain the situation and they can look up your account details to confirm your verified status.
Have Your Verification Code Ready
When you register as a verified fan, you are given a unique verification code. Keep this handy as Ticketmaster may ask for it to verify your status.
The code is typically a 4-6 digit number or combination of numbers and letters. It is only available right after verification, so be sure to save it somewhere safe.
Show Proof of Ticket Purchase
If you have already purchased tickets as a verified fan, show your ticket purchase confirmation as proof. This could be:
- The confirmation email you received after purchasing
- A screenshot of the verified fan presale checkout page
- The tickets in your Ticketmaster account
Purchasing tickets is the best way to prove you had verified status for that event.
Check Your Text Messages
In some cases, Ticketmaster may text you when verification opens, or after you get verified. Look back through your text messages for any communication from Ticketmaster about verified fan.
Having the SMS confirmation message can help prove your verified status if needed.
Confirm Eligibility Requirements
To become a verified fan, you typically need to meet certain eligibility requirements set by the artist or event organizer. Being prepared to prove you meet qualifications can help confirm your status.
Common requirements include:
- Following the artist on social media
- Streaming the artist’s music for a period of time
- Opting in to the artist’s email list
- Having a Ticketmaster account history
Keep receipts that show you met any prerequisites for the verification process.
Why Verified Fan Status is Important
Verified fan programs are popular with high-demand events since it gives organizers a way to identify real fans vs. bots or scalpers trying to scoop up tickets.
As a verified fan, you get early access to purchase tickets through presales before the general public on-sale. This improves your chances of getting tickets.
It also often means you can buy tickets at face value. Without verified status, you may have to purchase resale tickets at inflated prices on secondary sites.
How the Verified Fan Process Works
Wondering how you get verified in the first place? Here is an overview of how Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan process typically works:
- Artists or event organizers establish eligibility criteria like following on social media or having a Ticketmaster account history.
- Fans register for a chance to get verified status by providing info like name, email, and phone number.
- Ticketmaster reviews registrations and verifies fans who meet eligibility requirements.
- Verified Fans receive a confirmation email and text when approved.
- When presales open, Verified Fans get exclusive purchasing access before the general public.
Registration for verification does not guarantee you will get a code. Spots are limited, so you have to meet qualifications and register early.
Tips for a Smooth Verification Process
Follow these tips to make sure verification goes smoothly when you register:
- Make sure your Ticketmaster account is updated with your latest personal info.
- Follow all social media accounts mentioned in eligibility requirements.
- Respond promptly if Ticketmaster contacts you by email or text.
- Save your verification code as soon as you receive it.
- Add Ticketmaster as a contact in your phone so you identify their texts.
With some preparation, you can verify your fan status and gain access to coveted presales. Enjoy the perks of being a verified fan!
Frequently Asked Questions

Verified status typically lasts through the duration of the presale and general on-sale for that specific event. Some artists may keep your status valid for multiple tours or events, but in most cases it is event-specific.
Can I use my verified code for multiple events?
No, verification codes are unique to each event and cannot be reused. You must register and get a new code each time.
What if I lost my verification code?
Contact Ticketmaster Fan Support if you lose your code. Provide your order number, name, email and event details. They may be able to look up your code if it was recently issued.
Can someone else use my verified code?

How do I improve my chances of getting verified?
Register as early as possible when verification opens. Have an active Ticketmaster account history and fully meet all social media requirements listed. Not all registrants will be verified as space is limited.
What if I didn’t get verified?
If you registered but did not get a verification code, make sure to try again in the future. Demand is often very high and space fills up fast. You can also purchase tickets during general on-sale without verified status.
Verified fan status provides significant benefits for purchasing high demand tickets. Take steps to confirm your verification and save any documentation provided by Ticketmaster.
