MHS football ticket information announced

McPherson High is selling a limited number of reserved seats once again for this year’s varsity football games.  

The seats are located just below the press box, on the north side of the center aisle (from the 50-yard line to the 30-yard line).  There are 210 seats available.

The cost is $43 per seat (discounts apply to individuals with passes and employees, see pricing below).  This includes admission to all regular-season varsity football games and a guaranteed reserved seat. Admission to sub-varsity games is not included.

All seats will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.  At the time of the purchase, each person can choose the row they would like to sit in, and if they would like to sit on the north side, south side or center of the section.  Seats will then be assigned in a way that helps eliminate open spaces from being left in the row.

These tickets are for the 2014 regular-season games only and do not include any post-season games.  Unlike basketball season tickets, these are not guaranteed to be renewable from year to year.

By purchasing a reserved seat, it guarantees that seat from being occupied without having to show up at the stadium early to save seats.  Home dates for this year’s varsity football games are:  9/12 vs. Andale, 10/3 vs. El Dorado, 10/10 vs. Winfield (homecoming), 10/24 vs. Buhlerand 10/31 vs. Hays (Senior Night).  These seats would make great gifts and have fantastic views of the field.  

Seats will go on sale from 5:00-7:20 pm at the Bullpup Fall Preview at McPherson Stadium on Aug. 29.  After that, tickets can be purchased in the MHS activities office during regular business hours (8 a.m.-12:30 p.m., 1:30-4:00 p.m.) beginning September 2 and ending Sept. 11 while supplies last.  No additional seats or season passes will be sold after Sept. 11.
