Limited number of Battle of the Axe tickets go on sale Friday

DENISON, Tex. (KXII) - If you don't yet have the hottest ticket of the year in Grayson County, there's still hope.

A limited number of general admission tickets to this year's Battle of the Axe between the Sherman Bearcats and Denison Yellow Jackets will go on sale Friday before the game.

Denison ISD officials say the tickets will go on sale at 6:15 p.m. Friday immediately prior to the game at the west and east ticket booths at Munson Stadium.

The tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, so potential buyers are urged to arrive early.

Denison ISD says fans who pre-purchased General Admission tickets prior to game day are also encouraged to arrive early to secure seats.

They say beginning at 7:10 p.m., fans will not be able to cross from one side of the stadium to the other.

“We are also urging any of our season ticket holders who won’t be able to attend the Denison-Sherman game, or any other home games, to please bring your tickets to our administration building at 1201 S. Rusk avenue by noon on Friday, and we will try to sell them for you,” said DISD Superintendent Dr. Henry Scott. “We will be happy to refund your money, or you can choose to donate it to the Booster Club."

Kickoff for the 120th Battle of the Axe is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday at Munson Stadium in Denison.
