Cairo High School has announced that football tickets for the Sept. 4 Cairo-Fitzgerald game will go on sale next week. Due to COVID-19 precautions, there will be no season tickets sold this year and tickets for Syrupmaker home games will be sold on a game-by-game basis and will be limited.
Tickets are $10 each and will be sold in groups of two only, no single seat admissions, and there will be no reserved seats. On entering the gates, fans will be escorted to the next available pod of seats. No standing will be allowed and fans will sit in pods of two with social distancing from other groups of two.
Tickets will be available on Monday, Aug. 31, at C.H.S. beginning at 8 a.m. for last year’s reserved seat ticket holders and parents of current football players, band members and cheerleaders. After Monday, any available seats will be sold to the public.
On Wednesday, a limited number of student tickets will be sold for $10 each in groups of two and social distancing will be required between groups. When purchasing tickets at the school, people must wear a mask. No tickets will be sold on game day.
Fans may only sit in groups of two. Social distancing outside the groups of two is required. Due to the fact that the virus is known to spread from the mouth with droplets being expelled while talking or yelling, masks are required to be worn in the stadium.
Kickoff for the Sept. 4 game will be 7:30 p.m.
“I realize it will be different this year, but we feel this is the best way to, first of all, make it possible for kids to have football this season and, secondly, to make it as safe as possible for our students and fans. We will not be able to allow walk-up fans to buy tickets and there will not be an opportunity to stand outside along the fences. We are selling tickets on a game-by-game basis because there is a possibility we will have only two home games this year, Fitzgerald and Thomasville. Our last three home games are with Dougherty County schools, and they have currently postponed Fall sports and that could be extended through the rest of the season,” said C.H.S. Athletic Director Tom Fallaw.
If permitted next season, prior season ticket holders will be able to claim their former seats again in 2021.
