The Van Wert varsity football team will host the Crestview Knights for a jamboree game that begins at 7:00 p.m. this Friday, August 23. Gates will open at 6:30 that evening. The jamboree is approved by the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) and both schools contribute financially to the OHSAA Foundation.
Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students. Fans are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item and will have their gate admission reduced to $3 for adults and $2 for students. Season passes are not honored for this event and the game does not count as a regular season contest for either school. However season passes can be picked up during the scrimmage at the tent on the visitor side.
The Van Wert football parents will be running a concession stand from a tent at the south end of Eggerss Stadium. They will have sandwiches, drinks and candy available. Come out and enjoy and evening of food and football as the Cougars and Knights look to prepare for the opening of the 2019 regular football season.
