Tickets will be sold for $22 at the gate on game day Saturday. 

Grady High School will play Maynard Holbrook Jackson High School in the first high school game at 1 p.m. 

At 4 p.m., South Atlanta High School will play Washington High School. 

At 7 p.m., South Paulding High School of Paulding County Schools will play Atlanta’s Benjamin E. Mays High School. 

One ticket gives the holder access to all three games, but ticket-holders cannot re-enter the stadium using the same ticket if they leave the stadium.
