A Message to Fans Regarding Game Day Behavior

​Dear Pickerington Schools students, parents, and fans,


Nothing matches the excitement of being in Tiger Stadium to cheer on our Tigers and Panthers — and this time it is a playoff game! Our cross-town rivalry is unmatched in the quality of our football teams and in the passion with which our fans support those teams. This amazing experience does not happen on its own. We depend on our athletics staff, safety and security personnel, and local police to move thousands of people safely in and out of Tiger Stadium and the neighborhood surrounding it. This only works when we all demonstrate patience and mutual respect for each other and full cooperation with the safety guidance and protocols.


We are asking that every student, parent, and fan attending Friday's game take personal responsibility for a safe and positive football experience that reflects the best of Pickerington Schools.


So, let's do it right on Friday! Panthers and Tigers, together we will be taking the following actions to ensure a fantastic and safe Football Friday:

  • Panther fans must use the visitor gate and are to remain on the visitor side of the stadium. Concessions will be available on the visitor side. Portable restrooms have been provided for your use. Panther fans needing mobility accommodations may use the ADA-compliant home gate.  
  • Tiger fans must use the home gate and must stay on the Tiger Stadium home side. 
  • Bookbags and large purses are not allowed in Tiger Stadium
  • Any fan that appears to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be permitted into the stadium.
  • There is no re-entry to Tiger Stadium. Once you leave the stadium, you must leave the premises. 
  • Children under the age of 13 are not permitted in Tiger Stadium without parent or guardian supervision.
  • Fans are not permitted to rush the field. 
  • Adult Panther and Tiger fans are expected to be positive role models for our younger fans! You are expected and encouraged to display good sportsmanship.
  • Violation of these rules will result in consequences including, but not limited to seat relocation, loss of ticket buying privileges, ejection from the facility without ticket refund, and/or arrest.
  • Students are expected to adhere to the Pickerington Schools Student Code of Conduct at all times. Students who violate our code of conduct risk significant consequences. 

Pickerington Schools is a strong community and passionate about its football teams. Our fans, guided by our Pickerington Schools Fan Code of Conduct , show how much they support and love our teams at every game. We have so much to be proud of with our schools. So let's remind our community that we are Pickerington Proud and let's bring our best to this Pickerington Football Friday!
