Tickets will be available at both schools starting Monday
Tailgating and club seating will not be available for fans during Friday’s St. Xavier-Trinity high school football playoff game at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
The Shamrocks (13-0) and Tigers (10-3) are scheduled to meet at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the Class 6-A state semifinals. The winner will advance to the state final set for Dec. 3 in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
The following guidelines have been set for the St. X-Trinity game in order to allow time to set up for the University of Louisville’s football game against Kentucky at noon Saturday:
* No tailgating.
* No club seating. All tickets are $10 and general admission.
* Parking is $10, and lots will open at 4:30 p.m. Gates and ticket windows at PJCS will open at 5 p.m.
As the designated home team, Trinity made the decision to play at PJCS instead of its home field, Marshall Stadium (capacity: 4,500).
Tickets will be available at both schools throughout the week. The St. X ticket office will be open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday and 8:30-11 a.m. on Wednesday. The Trinity ticket office will be open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday and 9 a.m.-11 a.m. Wednesday-Friday.
The playoff game is a rematch from the regular season. The Shamrocks beat the Tigers 35-13 on Sept. 30 at PJCS. Trinity has won 11 of the past 12 meetings against St. X.
