Dear SHS Community:
Stratford Athletics - Fall 2021 Hello, I hope this email finds you well and the first days of school have been a positive start for your student. Today, I am writing with information about the fall season and a new process for purchasing tickets online. GoFan Ticketing Stratford and Bunnell High Schools are now selling tickets and Booster Club Passes digitally to all home games. Beginning this week tickets can be purchased at any time on www.gofan.co.
We will also have QR codes posted at the entrances to Penders Field and the Stratford High School Gymnasium for those purchasing tickets on site. These codes will link your phone directly to the website. Cash purchases will still be an option for single game tickets at the entrance gate, but please note that the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference will no longer allow cash purchases at State Tournaments and many high schools are moving toward implementing similar policies.
