CISD Night at the Ballpark!

NEW FOR 2016!!

All tickets purchased through this offer will receive an exclusive Coppell Cowboys Rangers cap. Staff, students, family, and friends can purchase additional Upper Reserved tickets ($15 students and $20 adults) through their campus.

  • $3.00 for every ticket purchased through the campus will be donated to the CISD Education Foundation.

  • There will be only one selection for seating-Upper Reserved for $15/$20 for all of CISD. Each campus will still be grouped together. We are doing this to create a larger district presence at the ballpark.

  • If any family wants to sit in another section, they will need to purchase their tickets directly from the Texas Rangers and must mention that they are with CISD. *1) In order to receive the CISD discount, the tickets must be purchased prior to the game and not at the ticket window and 2) in order for $3.00 to be donated to the Education Foundation, they must mention they are with CISD. (Seating chart is available at texasrangers.com)

  • All checks should be made out to the campus PTO.
