Boys Varsity Basketball · LHS State Tournament information


Presale tickets for Friday’s State Semifinal game at 5:15 against Archbishop Moeller at the Schottenstein Center at Ohio State University will go on sale at Lorain High starting Tuesday in the main office.  All presale tickets are $10, and children 2 and under are free of charge. Tickets will be sold Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:00-12noon and 1:00-4pm, and Thursday from 8:00-12noon.  Lorain High has 1,800 presale tickets all of which are seats located in the end zone.  End zone seats are reserved for fans of participating schools.  Click on the following LHS Presale Seating Chart, and you will see the highlighted areas (please note that directly behind the basket is reserved for students).

Any fans that require handicap seating may exchange their presale ticket when they arrive for a seat that is handicap accessible.  This can be done at Guest Services in Section 127.

Fans can also purchase general admission tickets for $15 online by going to Ticketmaster.com.  General admission tickets have been on sale for 8 months.  With that in mind, the vast majority of the lower bowl sideline seats were purchased months ago by fans that attend the state tournament on yearly basis.

The winner of the Lorain/Archbishop Moeller will play in the championship game on Saturday at 8:30pm against the winner of Pickerington Central/Solon.  Immediately following the semifinal game on Friday, fans of the winning team will be ushered to Section 110 where they will get first priority to purchase tickets for Saturday night’s championship game.  All fans will need to have their presale ticket stub that that reads “Visitors”, and they will only be able to purchase as many tickets as they have stubs with seating again being in the end zone.  Please keep in mind that fans MUST have presale stubs from tickets purchased at Lorain High to be able to purchase these tickets immediately following the semifinal game.  You will NOT be able to use general admission tickets that were purchased online.

Please click on the attached Parking Map to view all available parking lots.

Fans will be able to enter the arena on Friday after the facility has been cleared from the game taking place prior to the Lorain High game.  There is no set time as to when fans will be able to enter.  All fans will be required to exit the building immediately following the Lorain High game.  Any fan that comes onto the playing court before, during, or after the game will be arrested.
