The California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Sec on (CIF-SS) and Huddle® today announced their new digital event ticketing partnership.
This agreement further expands the nation’s largest and most innovative ticketing solution for the high school market and pairs it with the largest sec on (586 schools) in the largest state association in the country.
“We are very excited to begin our partnership with Huddle in our continuing effort to offer the best championship experience we can for all of our stakeholders,” stated CIF-SS Commissioner of Athletics Rob Wigod.
“Huddle has been the leader and innovator in online ticketing, not only with some of our CIF Sections in California, but across the country in partnering with several state associations as well,” added Wigod. “We welcome Huddle to our Southern Section team and look forward to working with them in service to our member schools and to all fans of Southern Section athletics.”
Additionally, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) recently selected Huddle/ GoFan as its exclusive partner for a national rollout of a digital ticketing platform for high school sports.
Digital ticketing provides consumers with a convenient way to purchase and redeem tickets online or via a mobile phone. Digital tickets have become increasingly prevalent in the travel, sports and entertainment industries but have yet to materially impact the more than 450 million tickets sold annually to high school sporting events.
“We are excited to add the CIF-SS to our rapidly expanding Huddle Tickets/GoFan family. The CIF-SS and its member schools are a perfect ﬁ t for our easy-to-use digital ticketing technology, and the fans will absolutely love it,” stated Huddle CEO Joey Thacker.
