Mid-Del Public Schools is raising the price of admission for high school athletics.
The district has increased individual ticket prices from $5 to $10 at the gate and $7 online. All online orders include a processing fee.
Students and adults can also purchase an all-sports pass that is good for 50 events. The cost is $48 for students and $68 for adult.
The price hike is necessary to cover increased costs for sports officiating, said Andy Collier, director of student activities for Mid-Del Schools. Collier said many other districts have also raised prices.
“We had to raise ticket prices so we can afford officials,” he said. “And we knew it was important to take care of our students so we made the pass that will save people money.”
The price increase will only impact high school events. Tickets for all middle school events will remain $5.
Family passes will also be available through each high school athletic department.
The ticket prices are good for regular season events. The OSSAA oversees ticket prices for postseason competitions.
Mid-Del has contracted with HomeTown Ticketing for its online ticket sales. Tickets can also be purchased online through the school’s athletic department page, or the HomeTown Fan App. The app allows fans to easily buy and store digital tickets to events from a mobile phone. It is available for both iOS and Android devices.
