Prestosports & Hometown Partners for Offering Online Ticketing

PHOENIX : Prestosports, the leading all-in-one sports technology platform in college athletics, and HomeTown Ticketing, the smart choice in online ticketing for athletic programs of all sizes, are excited to announce a strategic partnership to streamline connections with fans as well as event and game-day operations. The partnership further connects the online and physical worlds of fans through PrestoSports, enabling them to search for and purchase event tickets online and enter venues through a completely contactless experience – an especially critical capability as sports return in the fall for the first time since the onset of COVID-19.


With no set-up costs, no annual fees, and a simple $1 per ticket fee, HomeTown Ticketing makes it easy and affordable for PrestoSports customers to implement online ticketing. With just a simple code addition and minimal training, organizations can expect to be up and running in under a week. Pricing is completely controlled by each athletics program with the same transaction and payment processing fees regardless of ticket prices or quantity.


The HomeTown system will make it easy for PrestoSports customers to implement social distancing and contactless best practices. It enables any smartphone to scan tickets up to 10 feet away, eliminating the cost of dedicated scanners and meeting social distance guidelines. Live data of capacity numbers and seating assure that space is optimized without exceeding established limits or modified temporary arrangements due to COVID-19 or any other restrictions.


Some of the key advantages HomeTown delivers include:


  1. Free for Schools – Schools receive full value of tickets with no expensive scanners required.
  2. Custom Branded – Designed to match schools from their box office login screen to the ticket.
  3. Simple & Easy – Organizations sell tickets directly through their PrestoSports website
  4. Integrated – Now fans are able to purchase tickets directly through the athletics website
  5. Box Office & POS – Cloud-based box office tools enable easy creation and management of events.
  6. Immediate Funds – Electronic funds sent immediately; no invoices or payments required.


“This is a great and timely partnership, enabling all of our customers to address the need for online and contactless ticketing for incredible fan experiences. With our mutual relationships with conferences and athletics programs, this is a natural fit. We look forward to continued innovation and growth between our companies – and getting back to sports,” said Keith Womack, President, PrestoSports.


“HomeTown Ticketing is very excited about the opportunity the partnership with PrestoSports provides us. With this partnership, as well as being the official digital ticketing partner of the NAIA and 18 college conferences, we are looking forward to introducing our exceptional services and provide all colleges and universities with the opportunity to own their own ticketing and deliver a safe and professional experience to their fans,” said Ryan Hart, Chairman & CEO, HomeTown Ticketing, Inc.
