Athletic Events: Online Ticketing and Capacity Guidelines

August 18, 2020

GISD Parents,

This year, in accordance with suggested UIL guidelines, tickets for all athletic events will be sold online only – no tickets will be sold at the gate.  Every spectator must purchase their online tickets prior to the event, and all tickets will be general admission with first-come, first-serve seating.  Tickets may be purchased at when the box office opens for that particular game/sport.  Student athletic passes and Senior Citizen passes will be honored at the gate. Online ticketing will begin the week of August 24th.

With the health and safety of our students, staff, and community in mind, and in accordance to the state’s mass gathering regulations, and recently issued UIL protocols, attendance at all Gainesville ISD athletic events will be at a maximum capacity of 50%. 

Capacity limits are listed below:

Leopard Stadium: 50% Capacity -  2,000
High School Gym: 50% Capacity -  650
High School PE Gym: 50% Capacity -  70
JH Competition Gym: 50% Capacity -  200
JH PE Gym: 50% Capacity – 250


Due to the capacity limitations for the 2020 football season, GISD will not be selling season tickets or reserved seating tickets.  All 2019-2020 season ticket holders will be offered their same seat locations for the 2021-2022 season if capacity limitations are lifted and season ticket sales resume.


We are finalizing details on how to ensure our participants’ families will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets before tickets are made available to the general public. 


Spectators at all GISD events, 10 years and older are required to wear masks at all times.

Face mask exemptions require medical documentation.
