Game and Parking Information from Portage Administration:


● Doors Open Game 1: 4:30PM / Start Time: 5:30PM

● Spectators will access the Main Parking Lot using Pan Am Way off of Airport Rd.

● Main Parking Lot Will Close for Game 1 at 5:45PM OR until FULL

● IMPORTANT: The Main Parking Lot for Game 2 will NOT be accessible until Game 1 spectators are off the property, therefore an off-site (overflow) lot will be utilized.

● The overflow / Game 2 ‘early arrival lot’ will be the SOUTH parking lot of the PORTAGE EMAGINE THEATRE (formerly the Portage IMAX) located at 6550 American Way which is directly east of Portage High School .

 There will be a continuous bus/shuttle service provided to transport fans directly to Door Q at PHS. The shuttles will begin running at 7:00PM, HOWEVER the doors will not open to Game 2 spectators until 7:30PM OR until the gym and parking lot is clear.

● Shuttles will be parked outside Door Q and available to return spectators to the EMAGINE THEATRE parking lot immediately at the conclusion of Game 2.

● Doors Open Game 2: 7:30PM(estimated) / Start Time: 8:00PM; since most, if not all, of the tickets will have been pre-sold, there will be many lines available for fans to submit tickets and gain entry.

● We will clear the Gym and Main Parking Lot in an orderly and efficient manner at the conclusion of Game 1, prior to opening Door Q, and begin receiving fans no later than 7:30PM (or slightly earlier if possible). However, Game 2 on Friday will NOT begin any sooner than 8:00PM regardless.

● “Comp” ticket holders will be directed to the North Cafeteria at the conclusion of Game 1 and will be allowed re-entry when the Gym is briefly cleaned and clear.

Ticket Purchase Information: If any tickets are available, then can be purchased at the door.
