Athletics Ticket Policy: Card and Mobile Payment Only with GoFan

Harford County Public Schools is pleased to announce that we will be using GoFan for mobile ticketing for athletic events. Fans can purchase tickets online through your school GoFan page or by presenting a card or mobile payment option at the gate. All major credit cards are accepted along with Apple Pay. The new ticketing policy allows schools and staff to operate a more efficient and professional ticket gate while creating a safer and enhanced fan experience. Buying tickets allows fans to access and share tickets easily by email or text without standing in line. Digital ticketing will also help promote social distancing while limiting person-to-person contact and the physical exchange of cash.

Fans are encouraged to buy tickets online prior to reaching the facility. This process will also help fans know if spectator seats have been filled prior to arriving at the facility. For your convenience, signage will be set up at the venue to help fans navigate an online purchase quickly and easily.

There has been an increase in unaccompanied students younger than high school age attending high school football games that has resulted in safety and security issues and concerns. In the interest of providing a safe and secure environment for all sporting event attendees, for the 2018-2019 and all subsequent school years, we will require that elementary and middle school students be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult for all football games. Unaccompanied children who are younger than high school age will not be admitted to the football games. Thank you for your understanding.
