MHS asks fans not to re-enter Mustang Stadium after leaving

Posted

Madisonville High School Athletic Director Rusty Nail sent an email last week thanking the public for helping make their Sept. 11 homecoming matchup against Teague run smoothly within the required COVID-19 guidelines and listed a few areas of possible improvements moving forward.

"A few areas we will improve upon have to do with entering and leaving the stadium," said Nail in the email. "In the past, many stadiums would have a must pay to re-enter policy. Online ticketing and no ticket sales at the gates prevent this possibility, so we are posting signs and ask that once you enter the stadium you do not leave unless you plan on not returning."

Nail stated personnel cannot allow frequent trips in and out of the stadium to vehicles and stores around town and have any hope of keeping a correct capacity count and securing the venue.

"The ticket workers have their hands full on the initial check-in without having to determine who all they can remember as checking in amongst the thousand-plus fans that cross their path in a short time," said Nail.

Ticketing is not traceable with the digital tickets. They will come up as already checked-in from a fan's original entry.

"Thanks in advance for your help with this and please remember, if you leave the stadium for any reason during the game, you just left the stadium for the night," Nail concluded. "Plan ahead for weather changes or expected weather and maybe pack some chewing gum to hold you over until the game is over."

Madisonville's next home varsity football game will take Friday against Livingston at 7:30 p.m. It will be their last contest before beginning district play at MHS Oct. 9 after a scheduled by week.

The Mustangs will host two more contests at home following their district opener against Shepherd Oct. 9. These matchups include Center on Oct. 23 and Jasper Nov. 6, which is slated for Senior Night.

Tickets for Friday’s matchup against Livingston at Mustang Stadium can be purchased online this week for $5 through the district’s website. To access tickets, go to the website’s “Athletics” section and click on the “HomeTown Ticketing” tab.

You may print your online ticket or present it to stadium personnel for scanning through your cell phone. Tickets will not be sold at the gate for this or any other MHS varsity football contest this season.
