The State Championship Football game time is 4:30 p.m. on Saturday Dec. 9th. Game will be held at Salem Stadium located at 1008 Texas Street in Salem. Appomattox will be the home team so fans will be sitting on the west side of the field.
The football team will be leaving ACHS at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday to head to Roanoke. Sherriff Letterman, Appomattox Volunteer Fire Dept., Pamplin Volunteer Fire Dept. and the Appomattox Rescue squad will be escorting the team from the high school to the Appomattox/Campbell County lines. From there the Concord Volunteer Fire Dept. and Campbell County Sherriff’s office will be escorting the team to the Campbell/Bedford County lines. The buses are planning on taking Church St. to Confederate Blvd. to Rte. 460. Anyone who wishes to send the team off along the departure route should start lining up along Confederate Blvd. before 9:00 a.m.
Pre-sale tickets will be sold by the ACHS bookkeeper from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. starting on Wednesday Dec. 6th through Friday Dec. 8th. We have been limited to 1000 pre-sale tickets so first come first served. Tickets are $10.00 and children 6 and up must have a ticket in order to enter the game. ACHS gets $1.00 back from the VHSL for every pre-sale ticket that we sell. Tickets are cash only. No checks will be accepted.
Also, ACHS has tentatively secured a chartered fan bus for this weekend’s game in Salem. The cost of a seat is just $35, which includes a ticket to the game. We must have 54 people pay for the bus to be able to provide it. All seats must be sold by 3:30 Thursday afternoon. Should there not be enough interest, we will only be able to refund the bus portion of the payment ($25), we will not be able to refund the ticket to the game. Anyone interested in riding the chartered fan bus should come to the high school office to pay for their seat. This is FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE.
