The lights in Washington Grizzly Stadium will debut when University of Montana Grizzly football team plays its annual spring game on Saturday, April 14. Kick-off for the contest is at 6:00 p.m.

The Grizzly athletic department’s goal is to set a Football Championship Subdivision record for attendance at the year’s scrimmage. We can do this!!

All of the proceeds from the game will benefit the UM Athletic Facility Improvement Projects, such as the Academic Center for Grizzly Athletics, which was recently approved by Montana’s Board of Regents.

Tickets for the scrimmage are $5 per person. A 4 pm tailgate party will offer something for every family member, and will feature live music, games, food, and drinks. After the scrim, football games will be available to children on the Washington-Grizzly Stadium playing surface.

Ticket Outlets for the spring football game are at the GSA Office, Elbow Room, JCCS Locations statewide, MSO Hub, Paradise Falls, Press Box, Red’s Bar, Silver Slipper, Southgate Mall, Stockman’s Bar & Worden’s Market. For a list of additional ticket outlets across the state, please visit

We are also working on a collective Community Sponsorship for the event.
