Tickets for the Altoona-Hollidaysburg high school football game Friday night at 7 p.m. at Mansion Park go on sale today for parents of the Mountain Lions and Tigers programs.

Altoona tickets will be sold at Mansion Park from 3-5:30 p.m. for parents of the football team, band, cheerleaders and Lioneers with a parent voucher. On Thursday, tickets will be on sale again from 3-5:30 p.m. for the general public and Altoona fans only.

Hollidaysburg football team, band and cheerleader parent tickets are on sale today and Thursday from 8 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. at the athletic director’s office at the senior high school building. Tickets can also be purchased on Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at the Tiger Stadium ticket window.

Adult tickets are $4 and student tickets are $2. Checks can be made payable to AASD.

Hollidaysburg fans are asked to use the Oak Lane entrance gate behind the stadium for easier access to the visiting bleacher. This will cause less congestion with spectators.

Parking is available for $3 per car at Columbia Park, and concession stands will be available with bottled water, soda and pre-wrapped food and snacks. Altoona business sponsors who have season tickets through the program and sponsorship may pick up tickets on either day between 3-5 p.m.

Because of the global pandemic, tickets for Altoona games will continue to be sold on a weekly basis and all tickets are general admission. There will be no reserved or season tickets this year.

However, if you are a season ticket holder, you will be guaranteed your seats for next season. Altoona will continue to presale all tickets during the week.

The AASD noted in a release that games may be canceled due to COVID outbreaks or there may be new playoff structures. There are no guarantees canceled games will be rescheduled.

Altoona opened its season last weekend with a victory at home over Cumberland Valley. Hollidaysburg is 1-2 coming off its first win of the season, a road victory at Palmyra High School. The Golden Tigers won last year’s game at home against the Mountain Lions.
