SAN DIEGO , CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 27, 2020 / -- As part of their ongoing partnership with Excite Fundraising, Piedmont schools are now offering fans an online digital ticketing solution through Purplepass for all extra-curricular activities and athletic programs.

About Purplepass Ticketing

Purplepass offers a robust ticketing solution that Piedmont Athletics will implement for all their sporting events and activities. Patrons can purchase tickets in advance, online, with electronic payment options rather than paying cash at the gate. Purplepass is not only a secure platform for payment processing, but a quick and secure way of receiving tickets prior to any event. (1) Find the event you want, (2) select your ticket types, (3) delivery method (print at home, mobile, etc.), and (4) enter your credit card information at checkout.

Purplepass offers a solution for:

• Minimizing long lines at the events point of entry with advance sales and mobile tickets

• Credit card payments made online, minimizing cash sales and unnecessary interactions during COVID-19

• Tracking revenue and ticket security; tickets can only be applied once, as this was an issue for Piedmont Athletics events in the past

• Ticket scanning equipment for faster entry and a touchless gate experience

• Access to instant print-at-home and mobile ticket(s) directly after purchase

Through incorporating Purplepass, the school’s focus is to reduce face-to-face interactions considering the current pandemic, COVID-19. With digital ticketing and online purchases, their schools can maintain the health of their students and other patrons attending these events while continuing to support their athletics department.
