Tickets for tonight’s Buckaroo football game are available only online through the Ballinger school district website.

The game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Friday, Sept. 4, in Bearcat Stadium. Tickets cost $4 each, plus a processing fee, and are required for everyone who plans to attend the game, including children of all ages, due to the school’s  need to meet the University Interscholastic Leagues’ requirement of 50 percent stadium capacity for both home and visitor fans.

To purchase tickets, click this link. Then, scroll down toward the bottom of the page and click on the red bar that says “Get Tickets.”  That will take you to a page that says “Varsity Football vs. Breckenridge.” Scroll down toward the bottom of the page where it says “Ticket Type.”

Under the “Visitor” section, click the number of tickets that you need. Then, a “Checkout” bar will light up at the the bottom of the page. Click it and that will take you to the payment page where you’ll fill out a form with your credit or debit card information.

Game Broadcasts

If you aren’t planning on attending the game in Ballinger, the game will be broadcast live on KLXK-FM 93.5. If you’re out of range of KLXK, you can listen to the broadcast online at the following link:

Additionally, the Ballinger ISD will livestream the game. Fans may view the livestream at no charge, but to access the livestream, you must acquire a free pass from Ballinger’s online ticket system. To do that, choose “Livestream Access” instead of “Visitor” on the ticket page. The link to the website will be e-mailed out Friday between 3 and 5 p.m.

Social Distancing

Social distancing will be required at the game, based on UIL rules. According to the UIL’s “COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Guidelines,” masks are strongly advised and are required with the following exceptions:

Exceptions to the wearing of face coverings or face shields include:

    • Any person with a medical condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering;
    • While a person is consuming food or drink;
    • While the person is in a swimming pool, lake, or similar body of water.
    • When a congregating group of persons maintains at least 6 feet of social distancing; or
    • Any other reason or circumstance indicated under Executive Order GA-29.

As many Texas schools started playing non-district games last week, the UIL expressed concern that some fans weren’t following the required social distancing practices, according to an article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. In the article, Sports Reporter Brian Gossett quoted an email from the UIL: “Schools not following these guidelines are subject to sanctions, including suspension of contests or discontinuation of public access to games, by the local UIL District Executive Committee and/or UIL State Executive Committee.”
