Bethel Park School District announced its intention to expand its partnership with Homestead-based eServices Technology
, which has developed a more convenient way for guests to purchase tickets to the school district’s live events.
Starting with the Hawks’ Sept. 1 home contest versus Mt. Lebanon (7 p.m., Senior Night), fans seeking reserved seating must purchase their seats online for $6 per seat, plus fees
. General admission seating can also be purchased online or at the gate for $5 each. Student tickets will remain $3 each.
Assistant athletic director Laura Grimm
says the new ticket-selling process came in response to fan opinion. “We are constantly communicating with our fans on ways to improve their game day experience, and much of the feedback we have received in recent years has centered around our fans’ frustrations with getting into our games in a timely fashion,” she said. “This new ticket-selling system will help alleviate some of that congestion.”
Grimm anticipates an adjustment period for some fans and will have on-site ticket concierges to help guide fans through the ticket reservation process. However, she also points out that many other ticket-selling entities have already shifted to this model, and most fans are used to it.
“Many of the people attending our games also regularly attend other sporting events like Pirates, Steelers, and Penguins games, and our process will mirror theirs, which should allow them to adjust to the new system rather quickly,” said Grimm.
Starting on Aug. 1 through Aug. 14, fans can purchase their reserved-seat season tickets by visiting the athletic department’s website. Beginning on Aug. 15, reserved seats will also be available for purchase on a game-by-game basis.
Online ticket sales are familiar to Bethel Park. For the past several years, fans have had the opportunity to buy tickets to all Hawks sporting events through various ticket-selling websites. Also, tickets to last spring’s high school musical, “The Addams Family,” were sold exclusively through eServices Technology.
