The mandatory driving route for all home football games will be as follows:

  • Enter the new facilities from the construction entrance on the South side of the football field.
  • After the game, please depart on the ONE WAY route on the North side of the school and enter State Road 68 from the East side of Tecumseh High School.

*This will be the route until the new State Road 68 entrance/exit is complete.

After a year of work, the Tecumseh fields are set to open for their debut on Friday.

The Tecumseh football team will play the first home game on the new field Friday night at 6:30 p.m. against Pike Central.

In a Warrick County School Board meeting on Monday evening, Superintendent Brad Schneider said the field is ready, but some parts will continue to be a work in progress.

Schneider said all aspects of the field and the stands are ready for the game Friday night, but the parking lot will not be able to be paved until next spring. In addition, there may be a delay in the opening of the new entrance to the field and those in attendance will be directed through the parking lot using the main entrance to the school and other temporary entrances.

While Schneider said there will still be more work to do, he said he is proud of the work that had accomplished to bring the new fields to the school.

He said the project has experienced many hurdles including weather delays, breaks in work to comply with other state agencies and health issues in lead officials.

"Please understand, some of these things are out of our control," he said. "But, I will tell you this...we're ready for a football game. It is not going to be perfect. But, I can tell you, next fall when we come back Tecumseh High School is going to have one of the finest athletic facilities. It's going to be gorgeous."

The Tecumseh High School Football Boosters will host a dedication for the field tonight (Thursday) at 6:30 p.m. at the field.
