Cartersville High assistant principal and athletics director Darrell Demastus, left, sells advance tickets to Seamus Manning of Cartersville for the Dec. 12 state championship football game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, where the Purple Hurricanes will face Blessed Trinity at 4:30 p.m.
Tickets will be on sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday at the Church Street ticket booth at Weinman Stadium. Pre-sale tickets are $22 each, or $29.50 at the stadium or if ordered online at Ticketmaster.com. Fans are encouraged to get tickets as soon as possible because CHS was allotted only 4,000 tickets. More than 500 were sold in the first three hours of sales Wednesday.
"We will also be taking fan buses," Demastus said. "The cost of the fan bus is $7, and you can sign up and purchase that bus ticket when you purchase your game ticket. You must have a game ticket in order to purchase a bus ticket."
