East Ridge High School and SoWashCo Schools have partnered with HomeTown Ticketing to provide digital tickets and passes to all regular season home athletic events. Fans will be able to purchase and show their tickets or district passes on their phones to get into events. Spectators can avoid the lines at events or the need to have cash at the door.
Fans have two ways of purchasing tickets and passes:
- use the following link: https://sowashco.hometownticketing.com/embed/all
- download the HomeTown Fan app on your iOS or android device
- The links went live on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 to purchase sporting event tickets
Once in the system, fans can search for East Ridge HS events, purchase and save tickets right on their device. Spectators will receive a unique QR code that will be scanned at the event. Tickets purchased online can also be printed and brought to the event for admittance.
Ticket prices are set by the Suburban East Conference and remain $6 for adults and $4 for students; adult district passes are $60 and student passes cost $40. Adult passes also include free admittance for one elementary-aged student. Fans purchasing digital tickets and passes will have a small convenience fee added to their purchase. Cash ticket sales will still be available at all venues except for swimming. Senior citizens are free at all athletic events at SoWashCo Schools. Please note that city-owned ice arenas manage their own ticket sales and are not included in this partnership with HomeTown Ticketing.
