The Broken Arrow Tiger football team will begin the 2021 campaign as road-warriors with four straight away contests to start the season. The home opener will welcome the Jenks Trojans to Memorial Stadium in Broken Arrow on Friday, Oct, 1, in a district showdown with the defending Class 6A state champions.
The 2021 schedule features just four home games due to last season’s matchup with Bentonville West High School being broadcast to a national audience on ESPN and being moved to Broken Arrow. This created a six-game home schedule for the 2020 season.
The Tigers will host the Yukon Millers on the Thursday of Fall Break, Oct. 14, in a Homecoming game that will welcome back all of Broken Arrow graduates to Memorial Stadium. The following week, on Oct. 22, the Tigers will host the visiting Wolves of Edmond Santa Fe. Broken Arrow will close out the regular season at home on Nov. 5 against Enid.
All Broken Arrow home games are scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m.
The first round of playoffs is set for November 12. The state semifinals are scheduled for November 19. A week off will precede the state championship game, which will either be held on December 3 or 4 at Wantland Stadium on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma.
Season ticket renewals may be made during the weeks of July 19 and July 26, Monday through Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the Broken Arrow Athletic offices on the second floor of the Varsity Training Center (directly south of Memorial Stadium on County Line Road).
As was indicated last year, the 2021 season ticket renewals will be for individuals who were season ticket holders in 2019.
Season tickets are $50. An Adult All-Sports Pass is just $50 with the purchase of a season ticket or $90 when purchased alone. Parking Passes, sold on a first-come, first-served basis, $100.
Upgrades and additional season tickets may be made the week of Aug. 2, Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the BA athletic offices.
New season tickets may be purchased beginning Aug. 9, Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the athletic offices.
The Tigers will participate in the Bixby Fall Classic scrimmage on Friday, Aug. 20.
