With Benjamin Russell set to host Chilton County in the first round of the Alabama High School Athletic Association Class 5A playoffs, questions have arisen in regards to tickets, parking and seating for the game.
Benjamin Russell principal Jose Reyes wants to put those concerns to rest.
“We’ve heard a lot of questions,” Reyes said.
For the Wildcats’ game against Chilton County, tickets will be $8. This will be the standard ticket price for the first three rounds of the playoffs, as set by the AHSAA.
From that point – provided Benjamin Russell advances through the playoffs – tickets for the semifinal games will increase to $10, and the championship From that point – provided Benjamin Russell advances through the playoffs – tickets for the semifinal games will increase to $10, and the championship game tickets will be $12 in advance, or $15 at the gate.
“We don’t want to speculate too far down the road,” Reyes said, citing that the team is only focused on Chilton County. “We just want to give our fans a better idea of what to expect.”
There will be no reserved seating areas for the playoffs, Reyes said. All seating is on a “first-come, first served” basis.
Tickets will be available for purchase starting Wednesday.
“They can stop by the main office of the school, and we’ll direct them where they need to go,” Reyes said. “We will be selling tickets from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.  Wednesday through Friday.”
In regards to parking areas, those with parking passes from the BRHS Quarterback Club or those who bought passes earlier in the season have nothing to worry about.
For those without passes, parking will be $5. Fans who have to pay for parking must enter the Sportplex on the Elkahatchee road entrance.
For parents that plan to drop off students at the game, they can still do so at Sportplex entrance closest to Hwy. 22.
Reyes said the team, cheerleaders, band and dance team are hoping for a large turnout.
“We’re hoping that our side is full and that we’re supporting our kids – not just the football team, but the band, the cheerleaders and the dance team as well.” Reyes said.
