Highland Updates Fan Protocol for Footballpublished March 30, 2021
The Highland Community College (HCC) Athletic Department has updated its ticketing policy/fan protocol for Porter Family Stadium. Fans and patrons are welcome to attend outdoor sporting competitions and admission for football season will be free for students with their ID, $7 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under.
For football, tickets sold in the bleacher section will be on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Porter Family Stadium. Gates will open two hours before game time. Seating in the bleacher section is limited to 25 percent capacity. Once capacity has been reached, standing room will be available outside of the bleacher area along the fence and parking lots.
Scottie Football's next home game will be Sunday, April 18 at 1 p.m. (gates will open at 11 a.m.) versus the Coffeyville Ravens.
Since the onset of the pandemic, the health and safety of the participating teams, the patrons and the staff have always been the top priority. HCC's staff will continue to work in compliance with state and local guidelines to operate the facilities with up-to-date health and safety procedures.
These policies will be in effect when you attend any HCC sporting event this season. Spectators who do not abide by these guidelines may be asked to leave.
What we ask of you:
-All fans must wear masks at all times for both indoor and outdoor venues.
-All fans must practice physical distancing from those that are not in their party.
-Bringing your own seating (lawn chair) is highly encouraged.
What you can expect from us:
-Concessions will be available at football games-areas will be regularly sanitized and workers will wear gloves/masks.
-All working personnel are required to wear face masks at both indoor and outdoor venues.
-All staff must pass a temperature screening before they begin their workday.
-There will be increased cleaning and sanitization of the common and shared areas.
-Social distancing protocols may be in place (seating arranged/some seating unavailable to practice social distancing).
