WAXAHACHIE — Waxahachie ISD released updated information about the season-ticket online payment hub for area Indian football fans to game packages this week on Thursday.
Though the newly-minted renewal and payment option for current season ticket holders will still be available between Aug. 7 and Aug. 14, the date of pickup was corrected from Aug. 20, a Sunday, to Aug. 19, a Saturday.
Lonnie Gaylor, the new ticket sales administrator that replaced Terri Siebert in the role, stated an email will be sent to existing season ticket holders Aug. 7 with instructions for using the alternative method for season ticket renewal.
He also noted new season tickets will be available on Monday, Aug. 21 at the WNGA library. Those who purchase season tickets, which are $48 each, will be required to pick up the physical tickets at the Waxahachie Ninth Grade Cafeteria — without the hassle of long lines or waits.
The Indians will play four home district games on Sept. 22, Oct. 13, Oct. 27, and Nov. 3 against respective Manfield Summit, Midlothian, Mansfield Timberview and Lancaster High School opponents. Waxahachie will play both its Sept. 1 season opener and the Battle of 287 against Ennis on Sept. 15 at Stuart B. Lumpkins Stadium.
According to historical records kept by WISD, it's the 97th installment of the rivalry game.
Waxahachie is 49-46-2 all-time against Ennis since 1908 and beat the Lions 38-20 in 2015 and 50-20 in 2016 en route to a six-game win streak. They will play for the 78th consecutive time since 1939.
On Aug. 19 between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., season ticket holders will be able to trade and swap tickets and collect online orders.
"WISD will accept cash, check, or credit cards on site," Gaylor said. "If current season ticket holders do not want the tickets they currently hold or if any have questions, they can contact me via phone at 972-898-9556 or email at email@example.com."
