UW Athletics to Take High School Football Championships Ticket Orders Starting Monday

Oct. 2, 2009


The University of Wyoming Athletics department has announced that beginning this Monday, Oct. 5, high school football fans can begin purchasing their all-session tickets for the upcoming 2009 Wyoming High School State Football Championships.

The championship game for each of Wyoming's five high school football classifications will be held in War Memorial Stadium on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 13-14.

"It is a great privilege for UW to be hosting the Wyoming High School State Championships and we will do everything within our power to host a great event," UW Director of Athletics Tom Burman stated. "We are hopeful that high school football fans and University of Wyoming supporters will purchase tickets and come to the games, but if they can't attend the games, please consider purchasing tickets to show community support."

On Monday, ticket orders for all-session passes will be taken by the UW Athletics Ticket Office either in person at the Arena-Auditorium box office, over the phone at 800-922-9461 or online at WyomingAthletics.com.

All-session tickets, which are good for all five games on both days, cost $15 for adults and $10 for youth.

Single-day tickets will be available at a later date, but likely not until the week of the events. Cost for single-day passes will be $10 for adults and $7 for youth.

All seating for the five championship games will be general admission in the lower sections of War Memorial Stadium. The home team for each contest will be seated on the east side, with the visiting team on the west side.

Sports fans in Laramie for the weekend of Nov. 13-14 will not only get to enjoy great high school football action, but they will also have access to multiple UW events taking place that same weekend.

The Cowboy Basketball team will open their regular season by hosting South Dakota State on Friday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. A special ticket price of $5 has been set for that game.

The Cowboy Wrestling team also will be hosting a big weekend of events, with a season-opening dual against Northwest College on Friday, Nov. 13 at 5 p.m., followed by the 37th annual Cowboy Open tournament, all day on Saturday, Nov. 14. That event is presented by UniWyo Federal Credit Union and last season over 20 collegiate teams and 450 individuals competed, with an even larger field expected this year.

The final UW event of the weekend will take place on Sunday, Nov. 15, when the Cowgirl Basketball team will open their regular season against Montana at 2 p.m. Once again, a special ticket price of $4 has been established for this contest.

A schedule for the weekend's high school games is included below.
