Greenville County Schools announced Friday it is changing how tickets to fall athletic events will be sold and distributed this year, due to coronavirus and the limited seating available.

District representative Tim Waller said seating capacity at both indoor and outdoor venues has been reduced to approximately 15% because of social distancing requirements by the state Department of Commerce and the South Carolina High School League.

As a result:

  • No tickets will be sold on Friday evenings at football stadium ticket windows
  • All game participants (both home and visitors) will have the opportunity to purchase two tickets before the event goes public

Everyone attending athletic events will be required to wear masks at all times.

Football games remain clear-bag events. Concessions will be available in prepackaged items only.

Questions regarding an event should be directed to the home school athletic office.
