Return to Athletics – Spectator Experience and Ticket Information

As we approach the beginning of our Fall athletic seasons, we want to start by thanking all of our student-athletes and their families, our students, faculty and staff, and our community partners for their support and understanding as we navigate through this uncertain time. 

COVID-19 has prompted Citrus Schools to think more critically and creatively than ever before when it comes to how we operate in the athletic arena. The desire to maintain a safe and meaningful season has led to the implementation of new guidelines as we move forward with Fall athletics.

To ensure everyone has a safe experience while attending our athletic events, we will start the Fall season allowing 25% capacity at each of our events. Closely following social distancing and masks guidelines, along with a reduced capacity, will provide our students, staff, and the community, the best opportunity to enjoy their athletic experience this Fall.

The reduction in spectators has caused us to re-examine how tickets will be purchased. All ticket purchases will be purchased online.  Starting today, Wednesday, September 16th, season passes, and single-game tickets will be available for purchase through an online box office.

FOR FOOTBALL AND VOLLEYBALL Events - Season Passes:

Season passes will be available ONLY to the families of students who participate in VARSITY football/volleyball, marching band, and VARSITY cheerleading. 

FOR FOOTBALL single-game tickets, they will be sold in the following order: 

• Monday of game week - Parents of VARSITY Football player. A PRESALE passcode will be provided by the coach/school. 

• Tuesday of game week - Student body and staff of each school. A PRESALE passcode will be provided. Two tickets can be purchased per transaction.

• Wednesday - Open to the general public. No passcode needed. Fans can purchase two tickets per transaction.

FOR VOLLEYBALL single-game tickets, they will be sold in the following order: 

• 3 days before - Parents of Volleyball players will be able to purchase two tickets for the next game. A PRESALE passcode will be provided by the coach/school.  Two tickets can be purchased per transaction. 

• When the presale window closes - students, staff, and the general public will be able to purchase two tickets.

*NOTE: For AWAY GAMES, the host school will provide a passcode for our parents to use to purchase tickets. Again, this code will be given to our schools/coaches to disseminate to the players/participants.
Currently enrolled students and our staff will be able to purchase single-game tickets, followed by the general population.


Once again, anyone needing to purchase their Fall sporting event ticket(s) will need to do so online through our online box office as we will NO longer be selling event tickets at the gate. The decision to move ticket sales exclusively online was done to allow us the opportunity to better manage our capacity levels while ensuring our ability to enforce social distancing guidelines.

TO PURCHASE SINGLE-GAME TICKETS: 

  • Visit our district website www.citrusschools.org.
  • Click on the button in the middle of the homepage marked “Athletic Event Tickets”.  This button will redirect you to our box office.  
  • From there you will choose the corresponding school you will be purchasing tickets from.  
  • Once you have purchased the online ticket you can either print the ticket and present it at the gate, or you can download the e-ticket to your phone or other electronic device and have it scanned upon your arrival.

Please note that senior citizen passes, walk-up tickets or any FHSAA passes, will not be available or honored this season due to these new protocols.

SCHOOL DISTRICT EMPLOYEES:

In past seasons, all employees were allowed free admission to all regular season athletic contests with their school board identification badge.  This is no longer an option for our Fall athletic season due to use being limited to a 25% venue capacity.  ALL faculty and staff must purchase a ticket so venue attendance numbers can be accurately counted and managed. There are NO exceptions to this rule. 

MASKS:

Masks are mandatory for all spectators for all indoor & outdoor events.  Fans are also asked to self-assess if they are sick before attending a game.  If any fan is not feeling well and/or have COVID-19 symptoms, please stay at home.  If any fan is caught not wearing his/her mask, they will be asked to leave the game. 

FOOTBALL GAME PARKING:

$4 per vehicle for each game.  School staff will be collecting payment as vehicles enter the parking lot. Health and safety protocols will be followed.

CONCESSIONS:

Pre-packaged items will be available for sale during games.  Cash only.

ATHLETIC EVENT POLICIES:

  • NO weapons of any kind
  • NO alcohol or tobacco products of any kind
  • NO pets of any kind
  • NO artificial noisemakers
  • NO re-entry at any athletic event
  • NO sideline access at football games unless approved by the athletic department with appropriate credentials and sideline pass
  • NO refunds and fans may be removed for unsportsmanlike behavior
  • NO solicitation or outside group fundraising of any kind without prior approval of the athletic office
  • NO outside food or drink of any kind (except teams’ water/snacks given by staff)
  • NO loitering
  • Purses and bags may be subject to search prior to entry
  • All media groups, newspapers, photographers must have prior approval and appropriate credentials for access to the sides of the fields. 

*All ticket policies subject to change based upon guidelines and mandates from the Citrus County Health Department and the Florida High School Athletic Association.

As with any change, we understand there will be some growing pains – all we ask is that you simply be patient as we continue to work on providing you the very best fan experience possible. As always, should you have any questions or concerns regarding these initiatives, please contact the athletic directors at your child’s school.

Again, we thank you in advance for your cooperation and support of our students.  We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to show your support for the student-athletes of Citrus County.
