Please see the message below regarding tickets for the SOV Football game this Friday: In order to meet capacity restrictions and limit the physical exchange of money, the CIC is using an electronic ticket system this year for football. Below you will find the link where tickets for the first varsity game and first JV game can be purchased. You will then use a mobile device (likely a smartphone) to show the ticket at the gate to gain entrance (see the videos below for more information). All students who are younger than high school age must be accompanied by an adult and remain with that adult throughout the game. All SHS and OVHS students will be admitted into the game for free and will not need an electronic ticket. They will sign in when they enter the game to help us keep a count toward the capacity. The total cost per ticket (after handling fee) will be $4, and there is a limit of 4 tickets per purchase.
