Tiger stadium to host bi-district playoff game

For the first time in 40 years, Tiger Stadium at Grim Park will be the stage for the Bi-District Playoff Game as the Texas High Tigers (13-4A) take on the John Tyler Lions (14-4A). The game will be Friday, Nov. 12 with kick-off at 7:30 p.m.

Game Tickets for current Season Ticket Holders will go on sale beginning Wednesday, Nov. 3, through Friday, Nov. 5, and then again on Monday, Nov. 8. Tickets for the General Public will be offered Nov. 9-11.

All tickets are Reserved Seating and cost $7. THS student (high school only) game tickets are available for $4 and can be purchased during lunch on Nov. 10 – 11 in the cafeteria. Remaining tickets will be sold at the gate beginning at 6 p.m. for $8.

Because of an expected sold-out attendance for the Bi-District football game between Texas High and John Tyler, TISD will be offering Shuttle Bus service to and from Tiger Stadium at Grim Park for Texas High and John Tyler fans.

The Shuttle Bus Service is free to all and requires a purchased game ticket for boarding. For Texas High fans, shuttle buses will leave from the student parking lot at 4001 Summerhill Road. John Tyler fans can board shuttle buses at Rose Hill Baptist Church located at West 7th and Summerhill Road.

All shuttles will begin at 6 p.m. and run continuously until which time the last fan has been returned to their car. Seats will be offered on a first come first serve basis and security will be provided at all parking sites during the evening to watch over vehicles and to assist fans with any questions. Texas High fans will go through a security screening upon boarding and will bypass stadium security screening. They will be dropped off at a special North side entrance at Tiger Stadium. John Tyler fans boarding at the Rose Hill Baptist Church location will go through stadium security screening prior to entering the facility and will be delivered to the Southeast side of Tiger Stadium.
