CIF Playoff Games- How to Purchase Tickets

The CIF/Central Section has made the decision that all playoff games will be 100% digital for tickets sales to all events. As we all transition from ticket sellers to on-line ticket purchases here are a couple attachments that hopefully will help. I have also provided a link. As many of you are aware digital ticketing is being used at college and professional events as well as concerts. You will be able to pay with your credit, debit card, or Apple Pay. GOFAN.Co is the company and website. They also have an app. I wanted all of you to be aware of the changes for the playoffs and the convenience it allows.


Kern Learn Extension
