The Arkadelphia Badger football team will take AllCare Field at Badger Stadium for the first time Friday night at 7:00 p.m. when Coach J.R. Eldridge’s Badgers host the Sheridan Yellowjackets.
Both teams are 1-0 entering the game as Arkadelphia defeated Stuttgart 42-13 on Labor Day in the 1st Security Bank Arkansas High School Kickoff Classic at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock. Last Friday night, Coach Louis Campbell’s Yellowjackets opened the season with a home win over Little Rock McClellan.
Tickets to the game are $6 and Badger fans who want to beat the rush at the ticket window tomorrow night may buy tickets at the AllCare Field at Badger Stadium ticket window Friday from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Gates will open at 5:00 p.m. Friday evening before the game.
Students in the Arkadelphia School District can take advantage of a few different ways to get discounted tickets.AHS students who show their current AHS ID and Goza students who wear their 2014-15 Goza t-shirt can get in for only $3.
Parents of APSD students from Kindergarten through 5th grade can take advantage of the new Junior Badger Club and save money throughout the year. For $30 per child ($50 for two children and $75 for three or more from the same family), Jr. Badger Club members will receive a membership card that will admit them to any APSD regular season athletic event during the 2014-15 school year. Members will also receive a Jr. Badgers t-shirt sponsored by Print Mania, a Chicken Express snack pack, an autographed picture of Barney Badger, newsletters and other opportunities to see the Badgers and Lady Badgers up close throughout the year.
Season passes are also still available for those Arkadelphia fans who will be coming to multiple events throughout the course of the school year. An Adult All-Sports pass is available for $100 and students can buy an All-Sports pass for $80. Individual football and volleyball passes are also available for fans.
If fans are expecting to come at least 20 events throughout the course of the 2014-15 school year (Jr/sr volleyball, jr/sr football, jr/sr basketball, soccer, baseball, softball), a season pass would save fans money over the course of time.
Season passes will be processed, printed and delivered when payment is received. For more information about passes, contact the Arkadelphia Athletic Department at 870-246-7373.
