Aiken County sports ticket sales go online
AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - School sports fans in Aiken County can now get tickets online.
Ticket sales started Monday for all Aiken County middle and high school sports through a site called GoFan.
“Our families, sports fans, and stakeholders in Aiken County show tremendous support for our student-athletes and we are excited to be able to offer them a safer way to purchase their tickets,” Aiken County Public Schools administrator Corey Murphy said.
Through GoFan, each school offering athletics will have a page dedicated to ticket sales. A link to each school’s GoFan site will be available on the home page of each school’s website, as well as the home page of the district’s website.
Fans are strongly encouraged to order their tickets online each week as soon as the ticket sale links are published, since seating capacity at all stadiums, gyms and fields will be extremely limited due to COVID-19 health and safety measures. These measures will include mandatory social distancing and the wearing of masks or face coverings by all spectators.
“We ask our fans to be patient and understanding with us as we transition to a contactless ticketing space for athletics,” Murphy said.
Once a venue’s capacity has been met, no additional ticket sales will take place. This means onsite ticket sales will only be available if the school’s allotment of tickets does not sell out in advance.
A new ticket gate setup at each school’s athletic venue will help promote social distancing, while limiting person-to-person contact and the need for a physical exchange of cash.
