District offers new ticketing system for sporting events

Feb 04 2021

A new ticketing system makes it easier for fans and guests to buy tickets to sporting events at all Lexington District One middle and high schools. The five high schools and eight middle schools recently implemented the HomeTown Ticketing process, which allows fans to buy tickets to athletic events from any mobile device or computer.

“This partnership with HomeTown Ticketing enables us to modernize our ticketing process and provide a touch-free, cashless and user-friendly option for fans,” said David Bennett, athletics director.

HomeTown Ticketing is the leading digital ticketing provider in K–12 and collegiate spaces. Benefits of the HomeTown system include easy-to-use purchasing and redemption options, reporting tools and secure financial management features to streamline operations and increase financial transparency.

To find an athletic event, visit your school’s website or athletics webpages. You’ll see a “Tickets” link which is typically at the top of the page. Scroll through the list of events and choose the tickets you would like to purchase. After purchase is complete, your tickets will be emailed to you. You can either print out a copy and take it to the sporting event, or simply show your electronic ticket to the scanner at the door.

Lexington District One employees and retirees who are Golden Pass holders may still enter games for free by showing their employee identification or Golden Pass card at the event. Tickets are limited because of COVID-19 attendance limitations.

The district plans to expand the use of the ticketing system to include other school events in the future.
