Ignatius to Host Varsity Game at Wasmer Field

....sort of.

Due to stadium reconstruction, John Marshall has moved its Week 2 nonconference home game against Valley Forge to Wasmer Field, located on the St. Ignatius High School campus.

The game will be played on Thursday evening.
I believe this is the first varsity [American] football game in the history of Wasmer Field.
It might even be the first varsity game ever at St. Ignatius....I know they have played off campus for decades (including, ironically, many years at John Marshall).
I'm not sure if they played somewhere on campus in the very early days of the program.

In any case, kudos to everyone involved for arranging a fun and unique game venue...it should be fun.

Over/under on the number of people in attendance?

I went to a Mentor/Ignatius freshman game at Wasmer once. Pretty cool atmosphere right there in the city. The Ignatius campus is pretty cool too.

Sounds interesting. How many can that stadium hold? And is there room to stand along the fences? If it's Thursday 7pm, it might be a interesting game to attend.

Seating capacity listed at 413. Not sure if anyone is allowed on the track.

I find it very difficult to believe that Ignatius would schedule this game for a Thursday night, Aug 31, since that is the night of the freshman-sophomore parents' Back -to -School night,which will overflow the campus and take up every parking space at the school and in the neighborhood. There wold be mass chaos, unless the football crowd parks at the West Side Market lot and walks. The stands would hold the Valley Forge band and a few others, but the neighborhood is great. Get there early and spend time at one or more of the six breweries within walking distance of the school.
