MADISON – The “Madison Bowl,” nickname for the football game between James Clemens Jets and Bob Jones Patriots, will impact traffic on Sept. 2.

“We expect a very large crowd. Madison police will provide security and safety efforts within the event and traffic control on roadways,” a department spokesperson said.

Team boosters will coordinate parking at Madison City School Stadium, 211 Celtic Drive. “Please cooperate with their instructions,” the spokesperson said.

Limited spaces for handicap parking will be available at the stadium. Anyone with special needs should arrive early for the best parking.

Boosters will close the parking lot when it is full. Do not park along the roadway on Celtic Drive. Additional parking will be available at the city parking lot downtown on Martin Street. Shuttle buses will run from Martin Street to the stadium.

Game organizers have scheduled a shuttle from Spencer Square Shopping Center at the corner of Celtic Drive and Madison Boulevard. Round trip on the shuttle costs $3.

Shuttle users can purchase a combo ticket for $10,  which covers admittance to the game.

Buses will start circular routes to the stadium at 5:30 p.m. and resume when five minutes remains in the game. “Please be respectful of litter in the parking lot as we are guests of the shopping center,” the spokesperson said.

After the game, motorists exiting from the north parking lot and will be routed north only to Will Halsey Way and Hughes Road. Motorists leaving from the south parking lot will be routed south only to Madison Boulevard.

“Watch for officers directing traffic in roadways and intersections around the stadium route. Follow their direction and help keep them safe as they will be working in low-light conditions,” the spokesperson said.

Game tickets are $7 and can be bought at the gate, at either school or online at preptix.com. As the ‘home team,’ James Clemens students will pay $5 for a ticket. Parking at the stadium costs $5.

All patrons entering with any pass (employee badge, AHSAA coaching card, officials pass, etc.) must enter through the pass gate. Passholders must pay for parking.

To support Inside-Out Ministries, spectators are urged to bring peanut butter and jelly to the stadium. Place food donations in the drop-off truck that represents your favorite team: red for Bob Jones or blue for James Clemens.

“Above all, let’s exhibit safe, sportsmanlike behavior that all of Madison can be proud of. The eyes of Alabama will be on Madison so help make the evening a positive atmosphere. Go Jets! Go Patriots!” public relations manager John Peck said.
