Reduce state tournament ticket prices

This gets tricky, because paying for security, staffing and especially facilities (especially the big football, basketball and baseball venues) are expensive and not necessarily set up by the AIA. And, of course, costs for everything escalate but people’s income doesn’t (or worse). Still, where can a middle ground be found, because it’s admirable the AIA wants to give kids a once-in-a-lifetime experience playing at University of Phoenix Stadium, Arizona State, University of Arizona, Arena or the spring training stadiums, but its pricing families out of the buildings. Even the Division I and II championship games don’t fill one-third of college and pro venues. It’d be a bitter pill to swallow in places, but perhaps more intimate stadium/arena settings would not only boost the atmosphere, but cost a few dollars less for both Arizona’s high school governing body and the people (directly and indirectly) it serves.
