Wondering where to find tickets to the first high school football games to be played at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium?
Six Atlanta-area high school football teams will get the privilege of playing at the new downtown stadium in an event organizers have dubbed “Battle at the Benz.”
Atlanta Public Schools officials said game-goers can purchase tickets for $15 in advance at Grady, Maynard Jackson, Mays, South Atlanta and Washington high schools.
Tickets will be sold for $22 at the gate on game day Saturday.
Grady High School will play Maynard Holbrook Jackson High School in the first high school game at 1 p.m.
At 4 p.m., South Atlanta High School will play Washington High School.
At 7 p.m., South Paulding High School of Paulding County Schools will play Atlanta’s Benjamin E. Mays High School.
One ticket gives the holder access to all three games, but ticket-holders cannot re-enter the stadium using the same ticket if they leave the stadium.
