2019 JM Varsity Football Game Day Operations

The 2019 John Marshall High School varsity football home opener is this Friday, September 6, 2019 with kickoff set for 7:00 pm. Because portions of the new Monarch Stadium are still under construction, there are a few temporary changes for game day procedures at the Moundsville venue for the upcoming season.

The first modification is where guests will be permitted to park. Limited spaces will be available behind Moundsville Middle School and behind the JM Field House for anyone who has a handicapped parking permit. Those patrons can enter the parking lot via Court Avenue by way of 2nd Street or 5th Street. The Route 2 stadium entrance will be restricted to shuttle buses only.

For anyone attending the game who can’t find a parking space close to the stadium, several shuttle buses will begin transporting spectators at 5:30 pm from the student parking lot at John Marshall High School in Glen Dale to the field in Moundsville. This service is free and is handicap accessible. The shuttle will drop people off at the north ticket gate. Shuttles will start returning fans to their cars at JMHS as early as the start of the 3rd quarter. Parking is not permitted in the lots of businesses adjacent to Monarch Stadium.

Another difference, from last year, is fans can enter the facility at two locations. There are ticket booths and entrance gates located on the north end and the southeast corner of the stadium. Seating is available on the west side (home) and east side of the field (away). The new concession area and restrooms are finished and will be open this season.
