Valdosta --  Lowndes County football fans are glad they get to host a state championship game one last time.   Lowndes High will host North Gwinnett Saturday night in the 5-A championship, but starting next year, local communities won't host the big games.

All the GHSA championship games will be played at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

The Vikings love the home field advantage, but they've also drawn big crowds for semi-final games in the Dome. "Even when we go to the dome we'll take six or seven thousand people to the dome. When you look around the Georgia Dome and see different teams even from the Atlanta area, our fans generally outnumber even the Atlanta area fans," said Lowndes Superintendent Steve Smith.  

Good news for Viking fans! North Gwinnett sent back nearly 1,700 tickets. The ticket office just opened at 5 to offer those tickets until they're sold out. Kick-off is at 7:30 Saturday night at Martin Stadium.
