LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Lincoln Public Schools is making the switch to paperless ticketing for its upcoming athletic events for this school year.

Tickets can still be purchased at individual schools or the LPS District Office (5905 O Street). They will no longer be sold at the gate for any events.

Passes and ticket books may be purchased online or in-person at any of the six high schools or the district office. Passes and ticket books purchased online must be picked up at the school during business hours with a copy of the receipt.

Individual event tickets must be purchased at GoFan and presented on a mobile device at the gate. Fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets online prior to reaching the facility.

In a statement, LPS says: “This new digital ticketing policy allows LPS to operate a more efficient and safer gate, while creating an enhanced fan experience. Purchasing tickets online allows fans to easily access and share tickets (via email or text) without standing in line. It also limits person-to-person contact. Providing pre-purchase options will help eliminate wait times at events, as well.”
