It’s almost here — the start of the 2020 Football Season is upon us, and some new rules have been put in place for the Keller ISD Stadium and other athletic facilities. All attendees must correctly follow the rules to be able to enter any facility.
Masks must be worn into all athletic facilities and be kept on during any duration someone is on district property. The only exception to masks being pulled down is for eating and drinking. This will be enforced by the UIL, KISD Safety, Security and KISD Health Services. If spectators are feeling sick or have any symptoms of being ill, they are to stay home and should not attend any of the events.
Social distancing is imported and expected unless guests are with family members. Families are allowed to sit with each other but will be placed away from other groupings to enforce social distancing. At the KISD Stadium, there are only groupings of four for families allowed.
There is to be no throwing of baby powder or any other substances into the air before, during, or after the games. Anyone caught doing this will be ejected from the game and not allowed to attend future games as punishment. It is important to follow this rule to provide the safety of others who may be hit or affected by any substances thrown.
All aisles and walkways are to be kept clear at all times to provide handicap seating in these areas. No student backpacks or bags are allowed into the stadium and any who attempt to bring a bag will be asked to leave their bag in the car or behind. No food or drinks may be brought into the stadium. Sideline passes must be worn to be allowed on to the field and to remain on the sideline.
Varsity football tickets will be distributed through mobile devices. Ticket-holders can access their tickets through smartphones or by printing e-tickets. Tickets will not be sold at school during the week and the booths on game day.
All athletics facilities will be operating at only 50 percent capacity. At the Keller ISD stadium, capacity will be 2,100 seats on the home side and 1,500 seats on the visitor side. Social distancing is expected throughout the stadium. Every other row will be cleared to enforce the new rules. Once at capacity, no more tickets will be sold. Tickets can be purchased using the links below.
All tickets are general admission and there is no reserved seating tickets. Pre-sale tickets are $4 for students and $6 for adults. Tickets will open to the public at 7 a.m. the day of each game. Beginning at 5:30 p.m. on game day, tickets will be $8 each.
The Day Before the Game, Starting at 4 p.m.
Parents of football players, band, drill, cheer, and spirit groups may purchase a maximum of four tickets.

EVERY Varsity Football game for Timber Creek High School played at Keller ISD Stadium will be available to watch LIVE via the Timber Creek Sports Network and NFHS Network. These broadcasts will include live commentary, dynamic camera angles, graphics and include halftime or pre-game performances — all produced by our Keller ISD Student Media departments from KCAL, Timber Creek Student Media and others.
In 2020, the UIL has lifted a restriction on Friday night games being broadcast live, so every game this year will be LIVE at the Timber Creek Sport Network page on NFHS Network.

JUNIOR VARSITY AND 9TH GRADE GAMES
For JV or 9th Grade football events held at Timber Creek’s Practice Field, tickets will also be sold online through the Brushfire app. Game Day ticket prices are $4 for Adults and $2 for Students. Each ticket will allow the purchaser to attend only one football game played at TCHS for the games listed. After each game, spectators will be asked to leave so the next set of parents and students can come into the bleachers to watch the game. All students must be accompanied by their own parent to attend JV or 9th grade games at the practice field. In the words on the Brushfire ticket page, “No parent, no entry, no refund.” — so plan accordingly.
NOTE: The first currently scheduled JV game is Oct. 14 vs. Keller.
Additionally, students and parents must follow the same rules as described above in the Facility Rules section.
Timber Creek Sports Network is working diligently to be able to broadcast these games as well. Future dates to be announced as soon as possible.
