Basketball Admissions Information:

In order to regulate capacity with the resources available to us, we will be implementing the following procedures and rules for attending upcoming girls and boys basketball competitions:

  • All Cleveland athletes (girls and boys JV and Varsity basketball players and cheerleaders) will be able to designate 2 guests per player who will be able to purchase tickets at the gate.   Athletes will be provided a game specific ticket reservation card which they will give to their designated guests. Guests will present the ticket reservation card to purchase their ticket at the gate. Ticket reservation cards will be provided to athletes the day before the game. If an athlete does not give out their ticket reservation card for a particular game, they should return it to Mr. Hughes by the end of the school day.
    • Coaching staff for each team will be allocated 4 ticket reservation cards, for a total of 8 spots. The coaching staff will allocate these reservation cards to spectators as they see fit.
  •   85 general admission tickets will be available for purchase at the door.  Ticket sales will begin 30 minutes before JV games. Based on the number of attendees who leave following the JV contests, additional tickets may go on sale 15 minutes prior to the start of the Varsity contest(s).
    • For home quad games, 20 tickets will be reserved for Cleveland High School Senior students. Seniors will have the opportunity to enter a lottery for a ticket reservation on Fridays. Winners will be notified and provided a ticket reservation card on Friday during advisory. Students will present the ticket reservation card to purchase their ticket at the gate.
    • 5 tickets will be reserved for Cleveland ASB members.
  • Away team spectators will need to purchase tickets at the gate.
