All individuals hoping to attend Friday night’s football game between the Marion Patriots and the West Memphis Blue Devils will need to purchase their tickets in advance, the Marion School District announced today.
There will be no ticket sales at the gate. For Marion fans, tickets can be purchased at Marion High School, Marion Junior High School, or at the district’s Central Office at 200 Manor Street. West Memphis fans can purchase tickets at the West Memphis high school office. Tickets will be available while supplies last.
Each ticket will be specifically designated for either the home or visitor side of the stadium. Home tickets will be sold at Marion, and visitor tickets will be sold at West Memphis. Ticket holders will be restricted to their designated side of the stadium.
The following passes will also be accepted: Patriot pass, AAA pass, Marion student-athlete pass, Marion student pass, Marion employee IDs, and Red Level Patriot Partner passes.
As with previous games, preschool children and students in grades K-6 will not be allowed to attend games without adult supervision. Students in grades 7-12 must have a school ID to attend games, in addition to their game ticket/pass. Students without an ID will be denied entry into the game.
Friday night’s game will also feature the return of the Fred Leonard State Farm Hometown Showdown tailgating event, which will run from 4:30-6:45, before the game. The event will include vendors from across the area, as well as live music from 6-6:30 p.m. from the local favorite PC Band.
Admission to the tailgate event will require a valid game ticket. Attendees will be required to show their game ticket to enter the tailgate area, which will be located just south of Premier Bank Stadium. Everyone attending the tailgate event must retain their ticket to be able to enter the stadium for the game.
Any attendee leaving the stadium gates will not be allowed re-entry.
For those unable to attend the game in person, a livestream broadcast of the game will be available at marionpatriots.com and via the Marion Patriots mascot media app.
