McKENZIE — McKenzie Rebels hit the gridiron with Trenton Golden Tide on Friday evening, September 4, at Rebel Stadium. Friday is McKenzie’s first home game after last week’s game with West Carroll was canceled.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, fans are required to purchase game tickets at the high school’s ticket booth - at the back of the school - on Friday, noon to 3 p.m. Tickets are $6 each. This is the policy for the 2020 season.
In a memo from Kelly Spivey, principal of McKenzie High School, the game night seating capacity is limited to 50 percent. “Our goal is to pre-sell all tickets. We will send the visiting school an allotment of (300) tickets for them to sell. McKenzie Sports Activity Passes, TSSAA and TACA passes are still accepted,” wrote Spivey in a news release.
By Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) rules, facial masks and temperature checks are required at the gates.
Players, cheerleaders and band members have first priority for tickets along with students on Thursday, 11 to noon.
General admission tickets are available for sale on Friday, noon to 3 p.m. If any tickets remain, those will be sold at the gate on the night of the game.
Game night rules include:
No tailgating, all spectators are required to have a mask and temperature check. If one’s temperature exceeds 100.4, he or she will not be permitted to enter.
A student and band section will be sectioned off and students must cheer from the stands, not along the fence.
