Tickets for athletic events now exclusively sold online
(EL PASO INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT Jan. 6, 2022) — EPISD Athletics has partnered with HomeTown Ticketing to give fans a touchless process to purchase individual game tickets and sport-specific season passes.
The new ticketing system, which will begin with basketball and soccer games, will replace walk up sales starting on Jan. 21.
The new system allows fans to buy individual or season passes, get a digital ticket on their cell phone and have it scanned at the gate for access to the game. The process is designed to facilitate sales and create a safer, touchless system for entry into athletic events.
Fans can make their purchases at episd.org/onlinetickets or on the HomeTown Fan app, available through the Apple Store or Google Play.
The app is free. However, a $1 service charge and credit card fees apply for each transaction.
“HomeTown Ticketing provides a convenient, secure digital ticketing system for our fans that is touchless and cashless – with no waiting,” said interim athletic director David Cervantes. “This partnership will make our transition from old school ticketing to digital ticketing seamless.”
Another perk of the new online system is the season pass, which will be offered for $23 for soccer and basketball seasons. The season pass is sports specific and can be used during regular season games in EPISD. Prices will vary per sport.
“We are excited to be able to offer the season pass,” Cervantes said. “This option makes ticket sales more convenient and a bargain for parents and other loyal spectators.”
