When five Quaker Valley teams take to the field or court again next school year, fans will have to dig a little deeper for their tickets.

School board members last month increased athletic ticket prices by $1 for boys soccer, girls soccer, football, boys basketball and girls basketball in an effort to add revenue to the district's budget, leaders said.

“It will raise approximately $5,000 in revenue just increasing it by a dollar,” school board member Gianni Floro said.

The new price schedule calls for adults to pay $6 for football games at Chuck Knox Stadium and $5 for boys and girls basketball games in the high school gym.

Student prices remain the same — $3 for football and $2 for boys and girls basketball.

A $50 season pass for all home athletic events will remain the same, district spokeswoman Tina Vojtko said.

Quaker Valley leaders offer a free athletic pass for residents 60 and older, she said.

The move brings “our ticket prices in line with some of the other school districts,” Floro said.

Avonworth charges an adult ticket pregame price of $3, district spokeswoman Dana Hackley said. Avonworth students pay $2. All tickets are $5 at the game, she said.

“We do not have any plans to raise the prices for next year, but it could be a possibility the following year,” Hackley said.

North Hills School District prices won't rise next year, spokeswoman Amanda Hartle said.

The district charges $5 for adults and $3 for students when purchased at school before a football game, she said. All tickets are $5 at the gate.

North Hills charges $4 for adults and $2 for students for basketball, lacrosse, swimming and soccer.

In the Moon Area School District, football ticket prices for adults are $6 and students are $3, athletic Director Ricci Rich said.

Boys basketball prices are $5 for adults and $3 for students. No other events require admission at Moon, he said.

Rich said he anticipated ticket prices “will most likely stay the same” for next year.
