Arrival and Parking:

  • Required for all fans. 
    • No pass outs, no re-entry.

Champions Way Entry:
  • All fans must have a GoFan ticket for admission.
  • Only clear bags the size of an average purse will be allowed. 
    • Mount Carmel will have a limited number of clear bags for sale. Stock is very limited. 
  • No backpacks, large purses or large ‘fanny packs’ will be allowed past the entry gate or in the stadium.  You may be turned away if you have any of these. All small fanny packs and diaper bags will be searched by security personnel.
  • Adults (18 and older) please be prepared to show a valid driver’s license or state ID.
  • High school students with a valid Catholic high school ID and GoFan ticket will be admitted.
  • Public high school students with a valid school ID and GoFan ticket will be admitted only with a parent.
  • Mount Carmel reserves the right to refuse entry to any patron exhibiting undesirable behavior.
During the Game:
We want our parents, alumni and fans—as well as those of our opponents on the field—to enjoy their experience at all Mount Carmel athletic events.  Any visitor to Mount Carmel High School who does not adhere to our campus-wide smoke-free policy, appears intoxicated and/or is unruly or disrespectful toward other guests or personnel will be removed from the campus, including athletic facilities and parking lots.

Please note that for IHSA playoff games, access to the sideline is strictly limited and passes are required for entry. Please do not ask to enter the field or sideline.
After the Game:
  • 64th Street will be closed from Stony Island to Dorchester (except westbound CTA buses from Stony Island that turn north on Blackstone). We believe this will alleviate traffic congestion after the game.
  • Uber and Rideshare pickup will be at the corner of 63rd and Dorchester. All riders waiting for their rideshare should proceed to 63rd and Dorchester. 
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation as we work to ensure our game-day experience is fun for all and focused on the game!  

Go Caravan!
