2022 NORTH HOME FOOTBALL INFORMATION
2022 North Football Parents, Fans, and Community. Please see the information below regarding North home football games. We appreciate your attendance and support of our hometown Polars! We are fortunate to enjoy large community events like home football games together. Please note the access procedures below. Your acknowledgment and support of the expectations below is appreciated.
TICKETS & PASSES
Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors 60+ free admission with the ISD 622 senior pass. Prices are set by the Metro East Conference. No cash is accepted for admission! Spectators may purchase a single game ticket online in advance. Credit and debit cards are also accepted at the gate. Select in-hand passes are accepted at the designated pass gate at the northwest end of the stadium, including; current NHS student-athlete in season pass, ISD 622 employee badges, MEC conference passes, and MSHSL state passes. Pass holders do not need to wait in line to obtain admission – they can show their pass directly at that designated pass gate.
GATES & ADMISSION
Gates to the stadium will open at 6:00 PM. Tickets will be scanned at the main ticket booth. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance and to arrive early – at 6:30 PM or earlier – in order to find a seat location prior to kick-off. Ticket lines often become long after 6:45 PM and we cannot guarantee timely admission based on the volume of guests that arrive so close to game time. There is no access to the stadium during the day, and no reserving seats prior to the gates opening. Gates will remain locked until 6:00 PM, in order to secure the site and allow for event preparation. Pass holders may only enter the stadium through the small gate at the northwest end of the stadium. There will be no game tickets sold at this location at any time. Visiting team spectators enter the stadium in a separate location just east of the main ticket booth. Gate admission closes at the beginning of the 3rd quarter. No re-entry during the game. Only North and visiting team spectators are allowed entry into the stadium.
The Metro East Conference is committed to providing a safe, fair environment for these events. Ticket holders agree to comply with the MEC and MSHSL sportsmanship code. Purchasing a ticket does not afford you the right to yell at, harass, berate or otherwise interrupt players, coaches, officials, event staff or fans in attendance at this event. Failure to comply may result in dismal or other consequences. Your cooperation with event security and the expectations in this document are appreciated.
Students in grades K-8 must be accompanied by an adult in order to be allowed access into the stadium. Parents/guardians are not allowed to purchase tickets for students and then leave them at the stadium unattended. Ticket staff will make reasonable accommodations for large families, or a single parent/adult accepting responsibility for a small number of students (5 or less). Students who attempt to enter the stadium without an adult will be denied admission. Fun, first-class behavior is expected. Students or adults who demonstrate unruly behavior will be escorted out of the stadium by event security and denied re-admittance.
Polar Field and North High School grounds is an alcohol-free, drug-free, and weapons-free venue. Alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and weapons are prohibited on site. Outside food and beverages are not allowed into the stadium. Bags and backpacks are also prohibited. Small purses and baby/diaper bags will be allowed, but are subject to search by event personnel. Guests who arrive with outside food, beverages, bags, or backpacks will be asked to return them to their vehicles before entering.
The home bleachers feature seven total sections of seating - five full and two partial sections - affording over 2,000 guests an independent seat to view the game. Please note that there are designated sections for both North students, and as well the North band. These sections will be marked off in advance.
Multiple disability/handicapped parking spaces are available in the small, paved parking lot to the west of the stadium. A ramp is located on the east end of the home bleachers for any spectators who need mobility assistance reaching the main bleachers. ADA porta potties are located on the grounds and accessible on flat ground.
Access to the field is restricted to athletes, coaches, officials, and event staff only. Spectators are not allowed access at any time. The large plaza on the Northwest end is intended for families and fans to gather and meet, both during and after the game.
Thank you for your cooperation and support of North High School activities!
