A step into the future

South sporting events go cashless

South’s varsity ticket sales are going completely cashless. Using a new app, GoFan, all attendees of any sports will have an easier and faster time procuring tickets. Stand-in Athletic Director Dan Griesbaum has decided to take this initiative and bring South sporting events into the future.

“It’s the way of the future,” Griesbaum said. “It’s what most schools are doing now. It’s a way you don’t have to handle cash and it’s definitely more safe.”

Since the beginning, all spectators of the varsity games have only been able to pay with cash, but over the past year and a half, other methods of payment have been suggested. For instance, the use of credit cards for ticket fees seems to be a viable option for students, including Siobhan McGlone ’25.

“I like the cashless option because there have been so many times that I’ve had to stop at Farms and get cash for my ticket,” McGlone said. “It’s a hassle.”

Even though it’s new and something to get used to, the hope is that this will draw in more people and make the admission process much smoother. For now the concessions are still cash, but Griesbaum hopes that someday everything at the games will be cashless.

“We’re eventually going to get there,” Griesbaum said. “Some may be a little bit slower than others, but generally speaking, that’s where we’re headed.”
