Group Tickets
SHSU encourages group outings at all our athletic events. What is a group? A group is any collection of 10 or more people that come to a game and pay to sit together (i.e. Youth Groups, Athletic Teams, Birthday Parties, After-School Day Cares, Civic Organizations, Businesses, Neighborhoods, Friends, Families, etc...). SHSU provides discounted tickets for everyone in the group provided that the group is more than 10 people (Prices vary by sport, so please refer to the price table above). It is important for every group to inform the Athletic Dept. in advance of your planned attendance so the necessary ticket block can be made available and tickets printed for your group. Payment is expected in advance! In special circumstances SHSU may allow groups to make a partial payment up front or purchase tickets individually at the discounted rate at the gate prior to the event. Please allow 24 hours notice in order to increase the numbers of tickets printed for your group. Refunds for decreasing the size of group will only be granted if the notice is given at least seven (7) days in advance. Please call the SHSU Ticket Office to reserve tickets for your group at 936-294-1729.
