GLHS Football Game Information
Our fall sports season is underway, and we hope you can come out to watch our student-athletes compete when you have a chance.
On Friday, our Gahanna Golden Lions play their opening home football game in our new stadium. It is an exciting time for our district, our players, and our GJPS community. Showing our Lion Pride and supporting our young student-athletes is extremely important for all of us. However, our top priority is to ensure that we do so in a family-friendly, inviting, and safe environment.
Tickets for all home athletic events will be available online only. Cash will not be accepted for tickets at the gate until after October 1. There are two stadium entrances for fans. Please see the attached flyer for details regarding parking and stadium entrances.
GJPS staff can present their current staff ID and are permitted to bring one guest for free entry. In the event of a sellout, staff passes will not be accepted. Staff passes are valid for home contests only and exclude tournaments.
There is one concession stand operating on the visitor's side, serving our full menu as in past years. The second concession option will be a temporary site underneath the home bleachers, offering a more limited food menu along with drinks and snacks. We can accept cash or credit card payments at both locations.
We enforce a no-bag policy and utilize crowd control barriers under the stands. These efforts will remain in effect this year. The no-bag policy is limited to those of school-age only (18 years old and younger). The duty to prove age will rest on the ticket holder. Furthermore, we will continue to deploy crowd control measures around the stadium to encourage free movement, reduce congestion, and enhance safety.
Home sporting events are a time for us to come together as a community and support our Lions while displaying pride in our community and schools. We will not permit nor condone unsafe, disruptive, or harmful behavior. Some of these expectations include (but are not limited to):
- Spectators are asked to remain seated in the stands during the game. Loitering or gathering in the aisles, concourses, ramps, entrances, or exits is prohibited on school property.
- Smoking, including the use of electronic cigarettes or other intoxicants, or possession of alcohol is not permitted.
- There will be no running, fighting, use of profanity, or acting in a manner considered to be offensive, threatening, insulting, humiliating, embarrassing, disruptive, obscene, sexually explicit, or violent.
- Any violation of the student code of conduct or the creation of an unsafe environment or condition will be grounds for removal from the game without ticket reimbursement.
Together, we will create a positive image for visiting fans and a safe environment for students, staff, and community members. Please assist us by speaking with your student(s) about appropriate and acceptable behavior while attending school-sponsored events and reminding them that no bags will be permitted in the stadium. Thank you for your understanding and continued support. Go Lions!
