The California Interscholastic Federation has renewed a multi-year agreement with GoFan as the official digital ticketing partner to provide touchless, digital ticketing solutions to high schools and state-wide post season play across California.
Sporting events across the country from pro venues to high school have new mandated regulations, including limited capacity in stadiums, social distancing, and household limits. These and other statewide regulations are challenging state associations and schools to think creatively on tools and tactics to get fans in the stands safely.
Digital ticketing has been adopted throughout the industry as a safer, faster, more expedient way to attend events. GoFan is the trusted ticketing provider for hundreds of high schools across California as well as the exclusive provider of digital ticketing for all CIF Section and State Championships.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with GoFan,” said CIF Executive Director Ron Nocetti. “GoFan improves the fan experience to purchase and redeem tickets for our Championship events and from a management standpoint is convenient and easier for all our schools.”
“With 20 years in high school sports, GoFan truly understands the complexities of high school sports in California. Youth sports brings communities together and we’re excited to be able to help renew that tradition safely,” said BJ Pilling, CEO of GoFan. “GoFan is proud to renew our partnership with the CIF as the official digital ticketing partner across all 10 CIF sections,1,606-member schools and more than 838,000 students across California.”
“GoFan has truly helped us navigate capacity management challenges, during our return to play this spring in California,” says Damon Chase, Grade Level Principal and Athletic Director at Helix Charter High School in La Mesa. “Their support staff is reliable, responsive, and knowledgeable about what it takes to run high school athletic events smoothly. We are grateful to have such an amazing ticketing system for our fans and event staff.”
