Seattle Public Schools Moving to Digital Tickets for Athletic Games

Metro League is launching a new way to buy athletic tickets for high school games! This means that you’ll now buy tickets for Seattle Public Schools (SPS) high school athletic games online.

Starting this winter, the Metro League will shift to ticket sales in partnership with HomeTown Ticketing. The decision to transition to athletic event tickets as fully digital will provide the safest and most convenient experience for our fans and schools.

Beginning with the Friday, December 2, 2022 girls and boys’ basketball games, you will now buy game tickets online rather than with cash at the door. Paper tickets will no longer be issued.

Where to Buy Tickets

Games at SPS High Schools
SPS home games (games played at SPS high schools) will be purchased at Seattle Public Schools Home Town Ticketing Box Office.
Please note: Tickets are posted under the HOST school (For example, West Seattle High School hosting Garfield High School would appear under West Seattle.)

Away Games Outside the District
SPS games played at schools outside of SPS will be purchased on the away game host box office websites.
Holy Names Box Office
Eastside Catholic Box Office
O’Dea Box Office
Please note, games at Blanchet and Lakeside will be sold at the door until further notice.

When Tickets are Available

Every Monday at 10 a.m., online tickets will be released for upcoming week (games happening that Monday through Saturday).

Reminders for Game Spectators

  • To avoid any technical issues the day of the game, please download your ticket to a mobile device before arriving at the game
  • For quick entry, please be sure your ticket is ready to be scanned before you get to the door
  • While your mobile device will be fastest access, you can bring a printed QR code received at time of online purchase that can be scanned at the door

HomeTown App

The HomeTown Fan app offers a mobile phone app from the App Store or Google Play. You can search for the specific host school in the app.


Roosevelt is in search of community members and students to work at our home basketball games. Opportunities include:

  1. Gym Managers (adult only)
  2. Score board operators (adult and students)
  3. Shot clock operators (adult and students)
  4. Ticket tackers (adult and students)
  5. Student announcers for JV games only.

Adults over the age of eighteen can become district hourly workers and receive pay. All students are able to receive service hours for any of the jobs they fill during our boys and girls home games. Games are typically on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and quad games are on Fridays. If you or someone you know would like to become a basketball home game worker please contact Athletic Director, Danny Thompson directly at Thank you and GO RIDERS!!
