The Battle on The Border

Posted to Athletics by Danielle Richard


With less than 50 days before kickoff of the 2019 Landers Dodge Battle on the Border High
School Football Showcase scheduled for Sept. 13-14 here at Independence Stadium fans are encouraged to visit for team information, ticket information and merchandise.

Tickets for the Battle on the Border IX start at $10 for advanced general admission, $15 game day-general admission, and one ticket is good for all five showcase games.
Want to watch the games from the comfort of a covered seating or an enclosed, air-conditioned area while enjoying great food? If so, then you’ll want to purchase Club-Level Tickets for $50.

A “Family of Four” ticket package is just $50, and includes four general admission tickets, four concession food vouchers (hotdog, chips, and drink) and a parking pass.
For groups of 30 or more, a group ticket package is available for $400 and includes 30 general admission tickets, 30 concession food vouchers (hotdog, chips and drink) and two parking passes. Group tickets must be purchased in advance.

Battle on the Border IX tickets can also be purchased at two different locations; the Independence Bowl Foundation, located in the American Tower in downtown Shreveport at 401 Market Street Suite 120 or the State Fair of Louisiana box office at 3701 Hudson Ave.

Can’t attend the games in person? No worries. For the third consecutive year, all five games of the showcase will be televised live by FloSports through FloFootball. Visit to find out how you can stream every minute of the Battle on the Border IX.
