Ticket Sales and Seating Arrangements
Due to the need for social distancing in the stands, we will have limited ticket sales to around 25% capacity in our stadium. For our first home game, we are planning to sell 1,528 season tickets, 200 student tickets, and 600 general admission tickets. We will also provide 200 visitor tickets with the parents of the visitor players and cheerleaders having the first option to purchase these. Due to social distancing measures in place, the stadium’s home side will be for anyone who purchases a season ticket. Our student section, the visitor section, and the general admission ticket seating will all be on the visitors’ side this year.
Booster Members and Previous Season Ticket Holders
Booster members and previous season ticket holders will be able to purchase season tickets beginning Tuesday, September 8, from 9:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M. in the front lobby at TCCHS. The season tickets cost $50 per set. This is for all five home games. To purchase the tickets as a Booster member, your Booster membership must be paid in full. As a reminder, with the Booster membership, you will also receive a parking pass.
The reserved ticket section will be located on the Home side. Individuals must have a reserved ticket to sit on this side of the stadium. The reserved ticket only guarantees a seat on the Home side, but due to social distancing it does not guarantee a specific seat on the Home side. All seats on the Home side cost the same amount this year. Any remaining reserved seats will go on sale to the general public on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Whether or not season tickets are purchased this year, all previous season ticket holders will be able to purchase their original seats from the 2019 football season for the 2021 football season.
Parents of Football Players, Cheerleaders, and Band Members
Football, cheerleading, and band parents who do not purchase season tickets will have the opportunity to purchase up to four reserved tickets, which cost $10 each, or four general admission tickets, which costs $8 each, beginning Monday, September 14, through Tuesday, September 15, from 9:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M. in the front lobby at TCCHS.
Student tickets will go on sale beginning Monday, September 14, through Friday, September 18, from 9:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M. in the front lobby at TCCHS. These tickets are $5 each. Only 200 student tickets will be available to purchase.
General Admission Tickets
General admission tickets will also go on sale the week of Wednesday, September 16, through Friday, September 18, from 9:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M. in the front lobby at TCCHS. They cost $8 each and will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Pass Holders
GHSA pass holders will be permitted entrance with the proper credentials shown when entering the stadium.
Thomas County School System Employee Badges
Due to the limited seating capacity at this time, Thomas County School System employees will not be able to enter the stadium using their employee badge. Unless the employees are working or coaching at the game, they will need to purchase a game ticket to enter. As our community COVID-19 data improves, we hope to be able to open up additional seating as the season progresses.
