Tiger fans, after being delayed by UIL, football games have been permitted to begin. As the season approaches, here is everything you need to know to know about your access in the upcoming season.

Ticket booklets are not going to be sold this season, and previous season ticket holders will be able to purchase tickets from September 8-11. Tickets will be $8, first come first serve, and are limited to 10 per person.

In partnership with HomeTown Ticketing, fans will be allowed to choose their seats and receive the tickets immediately. The ticketing sales will be available online at the Texarkana Independent School District website under the athletics tab before September 8, for both the previous season ticket holders, and to the general public from September 14-18, or until sold out.

For those without access to the internet, or those who cannot pay with a debit/credit card, April Lane, Ticket Manager, will be set up every Wednesday before the football games to sell in-person tickets in a location to be announced at a later date. No tickets will be sold at the gate.

Face masks or coverings will be required to enter the game, and social distancing will be observed throughout the evening.

This season, Gold Cards, Faculty Passes, and Student Athletic Passes, will not be accepted due to capacity constraints.

Another constraint being the limited parking has led to the addition of shuttles that will transport fans to and from Tiger Stadium. Shuttles will begin at 5:30 from the high school student parking lot and will begin returns from the stadium at the start of the third quarter. Security will remain at the student parking lot for the entirety of the game.

The game can be listened to on The Fan 107.9, and home games will be live-streamed through a partnership between TigerVision and Texarkana Gameday and will be located on the Texarkana Gameday Facebook page and YouTube channel.
