COLUMBUS, OH – May 4, 2021
For Immediate Release
HomeTown Ticketing is proud to announce our renewed partnership with the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA). As the official online ticketing partner of the PIAA for all PIAA Boys and Girls Championships, HomeTown is honored to provide the platform for the organization to pursue their goal of moving to entirely digital ticketing for the coming school year.
This continued partnership will allow fans to have a secure, simple, and fast ticketing experience both when they purchase tickets to these championship events and when their tickets are scanned at the gate. HomeTown is proud to have entered into this five-year partnership with PIAA to ticket events through 2026.
“The PIAA is excited to renew and expand its partnership with HomeTown Ticketing. Their state-of-the-art platform has given our fans a safe, reliable, and easy way to purchase student and adult tickets for our events, no longer requiring a special trip to the qualifying school’s athletic department or championship venue. We are confident in recommending a relationship with HomeTown Ticketing for our membership as well.”
— Mark E. Byers, Chief Operating Officer | PIAA
“We are thrilled to renew our partnership with the PIAA to continue and expand our role in ticketing their championship events. We are committed to providing them with the tools, resources, and support they and their members need to host their events for years to come.
— Ryan Hart, Chairman & CEO | HomeTown Ticketing, Inc.
