Ticket prices increase at high school games
September 11, 2012
Ticket prices for KingCo Conference games is going up.
Beginning this fall, spectators will pay a dollar more at all home and away KingCo football, volleyball, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls basketball, gymnastics and wrestling events, including all post-season playoffs.
The new price for adults and high school students without an Associated Student Body card is now $7. Children in kindergarten through middle school will be charged $5, as well as visiting high school students who present an ASB card. There is no charge for people older than 65 and preschool-aged children.
“We understand this increase may have an impact on those families going through financial challenges,” KingCo representatives said in a prepared statement. “It is for those reasons this decision was put off until this time.
“Prior to this fall, the last time ticket prices increased for the KingCo Conference was over 15 years ago. The price of transportation, officials, facility rentals for our post-season venues, insurance, etc., have increased significantly in those same 15-plus years.”
