Teutopolis officials have added an hour of ticket sales today for Tuesday night's boys super-sectional basketball game against Harrisburg.

The game will played at approximately 8pm at SIU Arena in Carbondale.  All tickets are $10 and they are reserved seats.

Tickets will be sold to qualified staff from 1-3pm today.  From 4-5pm, tickets will be sold to reserved gold seat holders, immediately followed by the general public on a first-come, first-served basis.  Each individual will be allowed to purchase five tickets once the gold season ticket holders have received their tickets.

From 5-6pm, if any tickets remain, the general public outside of Teutopolis will be allowed to purchase tickets.

Teutopolis will not be selling tickets for the Super-Sectional during the day on Tuesday.  All tickets remaining from today's sales will be sent back to Carbondale early Tuesday morning.  No admittance to the building today to start forming lines until 3:30pm.

Tickets will be good for both the 1A Super-Sectional game at 6pm and the 2A Super-Sectional game at 8pm.  The gym will NOT be cleared between games.  The gym seats around 8,300 and SIU officials anticipate approximately 6,000 to be in attendance.

Also, the Teutopolis school district will provide fans' buses for Tuesday's game.  A bus will be available for THS students only and a separate bus for other members of the Teutopolis community.  Other Unit 50 students must be accompanied by a parent in order to ride the community bus.  Cost for transportation is $6 per person and must be paid when you sign up to ride.  Sign up to ride the fans' buses will continue until 5pm today in the Teutopolis High School office.

The buses will depart from the Teutopolis High School student parking lot at 4:30pm Tuesday and arrive back in Teutopolis at approximately midnight Tuesday night.
