ECISD announces it will not sell season tickets, reserved seats for 2020 football season

By only allowing general admission tickets, this will ensure spectators can social distance if they desire.

ECTOR COUNTY, Texas — Ector County ISD announced on July 7 that it would not be selling season tickets or reserved seats for the 2020 football season.

Instead, all tickets sold will be general admission only.

By only allowing general admission tickets, this will ensure spectators can social distance if they desire.

District leaders say season ticket holders will still have the opportunity to purchase season tickets next year.

Additionally, season ticket holders will be able to purchase tickets for the games of their choice from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on August 22. Those tickets can be bought at the ECISD Administration Building.

General admission tickets or non-season ticket holders can be purchased at the administration building on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Tickets will be $8 at presale, or you can purchase them from the Ratliff Stadium on game day for $10.

Officials ask that if a line forms while waiting for tickets, fans should practice appropriate six-feet social distancing.

"We look forward to another great high school football season and the opportunity to watch our students participate in the various activities that make Friday nights in the fall so much fun," the district said in a press release.
