Presented by the Indiana National Guard, on September 23 Pike High will host Warren Central High and on September 30 Park Tudor High will host Speedway High. Both games will kick off at 7 p.m. with gates opening one hour prior. It will be the second year that football games will be played on the field that, since 1996, has been the home of the Indianapolis Indians.

Ticket prices are $8 for adults and $7 for children 14 and under. Children age 2 and under receive free admission. Tickets may be purchased via each school’s athletic department, at IndyIndians.com, or by calling (317) 269-2282 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Victory Field’s football field configuration stretches north-to-south, parallel to the third base line.

“The Indians are proud to partner once again with the Indiana National Guard to bring Indiana high school football to downtown Indianapolis and the unique backdrop Victory Field offers,” said Indianapolis Indians General Manager Randy Lewandowski. “Last year provided a great first-time experience for the players, coaches and fans and we’re excited to host Park Tudor, Pike, Speedway and Warren Central this year.”
