LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Panther fans will soon have a new way to buy tickets for all their sporting events.

The district is teaming up with University Tickets to provide an online source for buying tickets.

The site will launch come this year's football season. The launch date hasn't been announced yet, but season ticket holders will receive a letter in the mail from LISD once it's ready.

It will allow general admission and season ticket buyers to have electronic tickets that let them either print a ticket or show the ticket on their cell phones when entering the game.

"It gives the customers the ability to go online instead of having to come in and go to the transportation department and wait in line," said Heath Wethington, an accountant for Lufkin ISD. "Also, it helps us control the amount of money that is coming in and making sure we are collecting the money coming into our account."

District officials said that if all goes right, they will be able to add non athletic events to the site as well.
