Know Before You Go: KISD Stadium Policies
The 2020 Varsity Football season is set to start this week, and Keller ISD looks forward to welcoming guests back to home games at the KISD Athletics Complex.
This season, Keller ISD varsity football tickets will be distributed through mobile delivery and accessed by ticket-holders through digital wallets on smartphones or by printing paper e-tickets. No tickets will be sold at KISD's high schools during the week nor at the stadium ticket booths on game day. The move to mobile ticketing allows for faster delivery of tickets to fans, contactless transactions at stadium gates, a more accurate count of attendees per game, and more flexibility for ticket-holders.
As per the University Scholastic League (UIL) and Executive Order GA-29, all athletics facilities will be operating at no more than 50 percent capacity. At the Keller ISD Athletics Complex, capacity will be 2,100 seats on the home side and 1,500 seats on the visitor side. Six feet of social distancing is expected throughout the stadium, with every other row clear of spectators. Once the maximum allotment of tickets has been sold online, no more tickets will be sold.
Tickets may be purchased through Brushfire. All tickets will be general admission. No reserved seating tickets will be sold, but the green, seat-back seats are all open to general admission tickets. Pre-sale tickets will be $4 for students and $6 for adults. Tickets will open to the public at 7 a.m. the day of each game. Beginning at 5:30 p.m. on game day, tickets will be $8 each.
Face masks must be worn at all times when on Keller ISD property, as per Executive Order GA-29 and the UIL. All fans, workers, and staff will be required to wear a mask over their nose and mouth and practice social distancing inside the Keller ISD Athletics Complex. Exceptions to wearing face masks include:
