Ticket Prices Increase for Wildcat Athletic Events

Ponca City Public Schools - June 26, 2023 6:49 am

PCPS has tried to keep costs down for ticket prices as long as possible, but prices for officials and mileage continue to increase. The district will increase individual ticket prices for ALL athletic events, except varsity football, to $7 for adults and $5 for students, seniors 55+ and military. Varsity football tickets will be $10 cash at the gate or $8 online.
Fans can also purchase an all-sports pass that is good for all regular season events. The cost is $50 for students and $100 for adults.
The price hike is necessary to cover increased costs for sports officiating, tournament fees, transportation, meals and lodging for our student-athletes. This will make PCPS comparable to other surrounding 5A and 6A schools.
We know it is important to take care of our fans, students, seniors and military veterans so we have the All-Sport passes that will save money. All-Sport passes for the 2023-2024 school year will be available online during the month of July.
The ticket prices are good for regular season events. The OSSAA oversees ticket prices for postseason competitions.
Ponca City is contracted with GOFAN for its online ticket sales. All-Sport passes can also be purchased online through GOFAN. 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.
Digital tickets can also be purchased at a designated gate with a credit card.
Additionally, reserved football seating will be increased from $50 to $60 per seat. Reserved seats include admission to the varsity home games.
The OSSAA voted in June to increase referee pay and round-trip mileage for officials. In addition to the substantial pay increase for officials, mileage rates will be raised from $.35 a mile to $.65 a mile.
Keeping officials has been a huge problem across Oklahoma, even in the postseason. Last year Oklahoma had 1,553 playoff basketball games from Class B to 6A. That meant over 4,000 slots needed to be filled because three officials are used at basketball games.
