Warrior Wrestling and Marian Catholic High School in Chicago Heights, Illinois, will welcome stars from every major professional wrestling organization to The Warrior Wrestling Stadium Series, a trilogy of Saturday shows on September 12th, 19th, and 26th. The events will take place on Dave Mattio Field, Marian Catholic’s football stadium.
These shows follow the August “Friday Night Lights” show that Warrior Wrestling put on, which was the largest- attended pro wrestling show in all of North America in the past six months. The safety measures used during Friday Night Lights were so effective that Warrior Wrestling’s protocols were directly cited by AEW on TNT when that national brand resumed welcoming fans to their live events.
Like Friday Night Lights, The Stadium Series will follow all rules and regulations from Governor Pritzker regarding outdoor spectator events and will feature extensive safety protocols in place to ensure social distancing and a contact- free environment. Those protocols accompany this document, and the Governor’s guidance is available here:
Kids 16 and under are admitted FREE to the events at the door with a paying adult. Tickets can be purchased online at www.warriorwrestling.net, with General Admission Field Seating Tickets for $45 and Bleachers / Standing Room Tickets for $35.
A scaled-down, socially distanced VIP Fan Fest will take place before each show from 5:00 to 6:30pm. Doors open to the public at 6:30, and Bell Time is at 7:00. The event will be family-friendly. Card subject to change.
A portion of proceeds from the event go to benefit scholarships and student activities at Marian Catholic High School.
WARRIOR WRESTLING STADIUM SERIES
Health & Safety Guidelines
Social Distance Seating: GA seating on the football field and in the bleachers will ensure all individuals/groups are separated. Seating “spots” will be pre-marked, and you will sit with your household/party on a spot. On the football field, spots will be 5 yards (15 feet) apart from other spots in all directions. You may bring your own blanket, lawn chairs, etc. as if you were in the lawn at an outdoor concert. At the end of the show, ushers will dismiss you group by group to avoid crowding.
Masks: All fans will have to wear masks at all times in which you would come near others who aren’t in your household/party. This includes the parking lot, entry, waiting for the bathroom, and exiting. When you are social distance seated with your party on the field, you may remove masks if overheating, but our security team may instruct you to put them back on if others around you feel uncomfortable. Please bring your own mask, but we will also have lightweight masks available at the door.
Temperature Checks and Symptom Screening Upon Entry: Anyone running a fever will not be allowed in but will be given a full refund for their ticket.
Hand Sanitizer: Readily available throughout the space.
Contact-Free Environment – No Paper Tickets: Those who buy tickets ahead of time will have their name on a list to be checked at the door, so no paper tickets will be exchanged. Day-of ticket purchases must be in exact change.
Contact-Free Environment – No Concessions: We will not sell concessions or drinks. Rather, it will be a BYO event for all food and soft drinks. No alcohol may be brought in or consumed. There is NO CHARGE for BYO.
Contact-Free Environment – Parking Pre-Charged: To eliminate the exchange of cash and maintain social distancing, we will simply charge $2.50 per ticket for parking instead of collecting cash upon entry.
Enforcement of Safety Policies: Anyone not adhering to safety guidelines is subject to immediate ejection from the event via our security team without a refund. Noncompliance is at the venue’s discretion.
Talent scheduled to appear includes: Brian Cage, Alex Shelley, Joey Janela, The Rascalz, Kylie Rae, Kimber Lee, Alex Zayne, Filthy Tom Lawlor, Thunder Rosa, Warhorse and many more. Event lineups for each show can be seen on Warrior Wrestling’s website.
