GoFan and Huddle Tickets
GoFan is the leading digital ticketing solution for high school events. Led by innovative technology and unmatched support, GoFan provides schools a turnkey platform to manage season, online, and at-event ticket sales. GoFan is a product of Huddle Tickets, which has provided over 2 billion complimentary event tickets to 10,000+ schools since 2001. Serving over 2,000 high schools and 37 state associations, GoFan provides fans frictionless access to high school events across the country.
It started with one client and a simple concept: how to deliver value through schools, engage with communities, and support local franchisees. Huddle Tickets was born out of this concept in 2001 with Wendy’s Old-Fashioned Hamburgers as client number one. And so was Huddle. For 20 years, Huddle has stayed true to its original mission of serving schools by offsetting operational costs, driving revenue and adding value to teachers, students, athletes, and families.
