KHS season tickets go on sale next Monday
Season ticket packages for Kilgore High School football’s upcoming season will go on sale next Monday, July 26, for those Kilgore fans who had season tickets a year ago.
The previous season ticket-holders have until August 13 to renew their ticket packages. This year, packages are $50 per set. That includes one ticket for each of the Bulldogs’ five home games this year. Those can be picked up between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the KHS athletic office, now located in the transportation building in front of the gymnasium on campus.
The packages that aren’t renewed will go on sale to the public for the same price ($50 each) on August 16. They’ll be sold through August 27, at those same times.
Kilgore, with new coach Clint Fuller leading the charge, will open the season at home August 27 against Nacogdoches. The other home games this year are Pine Tree at Kilgore (homecoming, Sept. 10), Palestine at Kilgore (Sept. 24), Chapel Hill at Kilgore (Oct. 15), and Athens at Kilgore (Oct. 29). Those are the tickets that are a part of the season ticket package.
Road games this year are at Hallsville (Sept. 3), at Gladewater (Sept. 17), at Mabank (Oct. 8), at Henderson (Oct. 22) and at Lindale (Nov. 5). Kilgore’s open date is Oct. 1.
