Waverly Central will play White House on Thursday in what is believed to be the first high school football game ever played at Nissan Stadium.

The game was scheduled after the Tennessee Titans offered the stadium to be used by the Tigers as a home game after their football facilities — high school stadium, field and fieldhouse were severely damaged by flooding last month.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Waverly enters the game 3-0 while White House is 3-1.

Here is what you need to know if attending the game:

How much

The game is free to attend, but fans must get tickets from NissanStadium.com. It is recommended that a donation be made to the United Way of Humphreys County. Donations can be made at tennesseetitans.com/donatetowaverly.

The Nissan Stadium parking lots open at 5 p.m. with free parking in lots A, B, C and D. Gate 1 opens at 5:30 p.m. for all fan entry. Nissan Stadium’s clear bag policy will be in place.

Concession stands will be open near Section 112 with food and drink at a 50% discount.

Where to sit

The entire stadium will not be accessible to sit at during the game.

The stadium’s east side lower bowl seating will be open to fans for the game. Waverly fans will be asked to sit from Sections 109-112 while White House fans are in Sections 112-115.

It’s homecoming night for Tigers

Waverly hasn’t been able to have a game at its own stadium all season. The flood hit Aug. 21, a day after Waverly opened the season with a 51-14 win at Camden. Waverly didn’t play in Week 2 at Columbia Academy because it was recovering from the flooding. Since then, the Tigers have won at Sycamore (42-20) and at McNairy Central (42-0).

This is the first and only scheduled home game the team will have in 2021. Waverly will hold its homecoming and senior night at the stadium.

How to listen

The game will air on 104.5-FM The Zone with the Titans Radio broadcast team of Mike Keith and Dave McGinnis calling the game. Pregame coverage starts at 6 p.m. with Amie Wells and Rhett Bryan.
