Rome Wolves varsity football is gearing up for the first game of the season. For fans who love to come out to Historic Barron Stadium and support our team on Friday nights, there are a few new procedures in place to keep visitors healthy and safe as they cheer for our Wolves.
Below, you will find important things to remember if you are planning to join your family in the stands as Rome High takes on the Rockmart Yellow Jackets on Friday, September 4th at 7:30 p.m.
Entrance to the game will only be permitted if you are wearing a face covering and the only approved entrances will be at the stadium’s ticket booths.
RCS has installed decals on the ground that mark the safe distance our visitors must observe while waiting in line to buy tickets.
Ticket booth volunteers will be required to wear a mask and gloves during transactions. Fans may enter to the right of the ticket booth and follow the signage on the ground that direct the flow of traffic in the stadium.
Visitors will be asked to use the center tunnel of the stands to take their seats and use the two walkways on either side of the home stands to visit the concessions stands or to use the restroom.
Concessions will be open during the game and RCS has installed decals indicating where visitors must stand while waiting in line.
Only prepackaged snacks will be served on both the home and the visitors’ side of the stadium.
Hand sanitizing stations will be located throughout the stadium and all restrooms will be sanitized at the middle of each quarter.
While enjoying the game from the stands, please practice physical distancing. Every other row will be available for seating, and seats that are not to be used will be marked with caution tape.
It is important to note that RCS administrators reserve the right to limit capacity if physical distancing cannot be maintained during the game.
Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased using this link: https://gofan.co/app/school/GA5278
If you wish to reserve your seat, it is advised to purchase tickets in advance using the link above.
Please be advised, seating capacity has been reduced to ensure physical distancing guidelines can be observed during the game.
The option to purchase tickets will be available in-person at the ticket booth on the day of the game until the stadium reaches safe capacity numbers.
If you wish to purchase tickets at the gate on gameday, please be advised that volunteers will only take cash for the purchase of tickets.
