There is no longer the option to purchase reduced price single game tickets, according to the Griffin-Spalding County School System Athletic Committee. High school students, however, can still purchase one single game ticket at a discount and that option is also in effect for the popular Aug. 26 Spalding High vs. Griffin High football game. School system employees wishing to attend a regular season home game may obtain one free ticket by presenting a valid name badge at either high school for its game prior to 1 p.m., on the day of the game. Employees must present a game ticket and name badge at the gate for admittance.
A special adult ticket price for the Spalding High vs Griffin High School game is $10.
This year, the Spalding High season ticket holder will receive the discounted price for the Spalding vs Griffin game since Spalding is the home team. Next year the Griffin High season ticket holder will get the discounted price for the Griffin vs. Spalding game.
