Season Pass Ticketing for Competitions, Tournaments and Showcases

Managing sporting events for schools as an event coordinator or athletic director requires the ability to manage attendance expectations, ticket prices, seating availability, reservations, and more.


Season Passes

Another great function of an all-in-one ticketing solution is the ability to offer season passes. For many schools, offering season passes provides parents with the ability to ensure they can see all of their child’s games year-round.

Purchasing season tickets online and ahead of time eliminates the hassle of purchasing tickets for each individual event and usually comes at a discounted rate. shopping-cart-checkout-with-Purplepass

Common types of season passes created include: 

  • All-sports pass: Provide parents and school visitors with the opportunity to purchase an all-access season pass to all the school’s sporting events in the current academic year. The all-sports pass is optimal for larger families and families with multiple children enrolled in many events or activities throughout the year. 

  • Tournaments and competitions: This option helps to plan for accommodations and reservations ahead of time, based on the number of students and parents who are interested in attending all included events. 

  • Flex passes: With the flex pass you can add as many tickets from as many events from your account as you’d like. For example, If you are promoting a variety of events not related to each other, but in your account, you can include them on a flex pass in case customers are interested in attending those other events. 



Benefits of offering season passes: 

Offering online season pass options for school events can help in many ways, such as:

  • Better organization of school sporting events and seasonal activities

  • Helps parents save time with planning and paying for event tickets upfront and in advance

  • Cut costs by offering season passes, which will help to incentivize parents to purchase season passes and attend more games
