SAN BENITO — San Benito Greyhound fans planning to attend Friday night’s Bi-District Playoff game against the Edinburg Bobcats will be allowed buy only 10 tickets for the game taking place at Bobby Morrow Stadium.
The district is hoping to avoid the ticket fiasco of last week’s Battle of the Arroyo matchup with the Harlingen Cardinals when just a handful of fans purchased hundreds of tickets, leaving many fans unable to attend the game or buying the tickets at a higher price on social media. At the time the district had no limit on how many tickets any one person could buy.
School officials said afterwards they would review the ticket purchasing policy.
Tickets are on sale today through Friday and will cost $8 for reserved seats and $3 for student tickets. The tickets can only be paid with cash.
TICKET SALE SCHEDULE
The district says season ticket holders can buy an additional eight tickets besides the tickets they hold. Reserved season ticket holders will need to buy their tickets during their assigned control number time slot or after. Season ticket holders should have their cards with them when they purchase the playoff tickets.
WEDNESDAY, Nov. 9
The general public will be allowed to purchase up to 10 tickets per person.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY, NOV. 10 & 11
Ticket sales are open to everyone and again will be limited to 10 tickets per person.
The ticket office at Bobby Morrow Stadium will be open from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm., Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, the ticket office will open from 8 am to Noon. Student tickets will be sold at San Benito High School, San Benito Veterans Memorial Academy, Gateway to Graduation Academy, and each middle school.
If the Greyhounds win on Friday the district says ticket limits may change depending on the location of the game and size of stadium.
