Kickoff is set 7 p.m. DO NOT arrive to Valley Stadium if you did not receive a voucher. Livestream information can be found below.

For those fans who did receive a voucher, here are reminders ahead of Friday’s game:

Face Coverings

Students, staff, spectators, and media must wear a face covering at all times. This is in line with WDMCS’ current Return-to-Learn mitigation strategies. Guests will not be granted entry into events without a face covering.


In order to promote social distancing, admission to Friday’s game will be limited. General public tickets will not be available.

Instead, members of Valley’s varsity football program, as well as band, cheer, and dance members, received three vouchers to distribute to spectators of their choosing. These vouchers allow individuals to pay admission to gain entrance for the contest. The voucher only allows an individual to purchase admission, has no cash value, and may only be used at the venue and event listed.

Admission is $6. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. Ticket booths are located at the north and west entrances of the stadium.

All visiting spectators are asked to enter the stadium at the north entrance and sit on the east side of the stadium. View more information about ticket prices >

Students who have a SAT or families who have purchased a pass from the Valley Tiger Booster Club AND receive one of the uniformed players’ vouchers for distribution can use their SAT/Booster Club pass for admission into the event.

There are no pass-outs allowed at Valley Stadium.

All bags, purses, and backpacks entering the stadium will be checked. If you will be bringing any of these items with you to the stadium, please enter through the bag lines at the north and west gates.


Both home and visiting fans are expected to sit in appropriate seating sections marked in blue tape at the stadium.
