Coffee vs. Lee County

This Friday night, December 8th at 8:00 PM, the Coffee Trojans will play Lee County In the GHSA Class AAAAAA State Championship at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. This is the start of a new era as the GHSA/Tommy Guillebeau Football State Championships, presented by Georgia Farm Bureau Insurance, kicks off at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The finest sports and entertainment facility in the world is home to the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United and now the GHSA Football State Championships.

Coffee Fans will have the opportunity to enjoy a world-class experience of seating comfort, restaurants, video displays, art collections and the GHSA Helmet Wall with every team in the state represented! Due to the historic nature of this event, the need for buses and drivers used in transporting students and fans and the fact that such a large number of students, teachers and staff will travel to Atlanta, Coffee County Schools will be closed for students and staff on Friday, December 8th.

Tickets for this historical event are $22 and will be available beginning Monday, December 4th, from 12:00 to 5:00 PM at the Coffee High School Athletic office and Coffee County Board of Education office. Tickets will continue to be sold Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:30 to 5:00 PM and Thursday from 8:30 to 12:00 noon at both locations. If you are driving your personal vehicle to the game, you can purchase a parking pass in advance at:http://mercedesbenzstadium.com/parking-and-transportation/. Officials have designated the Red and Silver lots for Coffee fans, who should enter through Gate 2.

To ensure that all Coffee Trojan Fans have an opportunity to attend this state championship game, the school system will offer transportation to the game for an $8.00 fee. Buses will leave the Jardine Stadium parking lot on Friday December 8th at 1:00 PM and will return to Coffee County following the game.

A bus ride and a ticket to the game can be purchased for a price of $30.00 at the Board of Education Office only. The school system will have up to 8 buses available. Individuals desiring to ride a bus must purchase a ticket to the game for $22.00 and pay an $8.00 transportation fee for a total of $30.00 per person. Please note that the bus parking lot is 0.7 mile from the stadium, and those riding the buses should be prepared to walk from the lot to the stadium.

All students or individuals under the age of 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. School-age children are allowed to ride, however, buses are not equipped to accommodate infant and child car seats. The buses are school property and this is a school event, therefore the use of drugs, alcohol or tobacco is prohibited. Weapons are not allowed on the buses.
