LOWNDES COUNTY, Ga. — We're following the social media uproar over tickets to the biggest game in town.

As we told you Wednesday, tickets are sold out for the Winnersville Classic between Valdosta and Lowndes County High Schools. It draws a big crowd every year.

In just about 24 hours, Martin Stadium at Lowndes High School will be at capacity for the annual showdown between Valdosta and Lowndes, but many fans who weren't able to purchase tickets, will have to find alternative plans.

With the Winnersville Classic already sold out of tickets, fans expressed grievances on social media. Some complaining about the number of tickets one family was able to purchase.

It's left many people to scramble, using social media to search for any available tickets.

Christina Moore, a Valdosta High School fan, says she is still trying to find tickets, but she says people should support the schools all year long and not just for one game.

"We should support them like this every week. But its great, I mean Winnersville is the biggest game and I totally understand people want to be at the game but show your support every week," said Moore.

Moore says she is considering becoming a season ticket holder in order to have guaranteed tickets.

Kickoff is Friday at 8 p.m. at Martin Stadium.

If you did get tickets, keep in mind the parking lots will not open Friday until 3:30 for tailgate setup.

Now, Lowndes County High School will be streaming the game live, but you do have to pay $10 for access.
