Another milestone in Pacifica's sports history will me made Friday night when the Terra Nova Tigers open the 2008 football season playing in a state-of-the art facility.

Thanks to a $135 million initiative bond passed by the local community two years ago the football field and track was completely restructured over the summer.

The public is invited to be a part of this historical game. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 6:40 p.m. Terra Nova High School officials will showcase the newly installed synthetic football field and track. The new bleachers will accommodate 1,800 fans.

A Terra Nova-hosted reception, coordinated by the school's Associated Student Body class, will be held at 6 p.m. Guests include former Terra Nova Booster Club members and Jefferson Union High School officials. The varsity Tigers will host Burlingame in a 7 p.m. kickoff. Earlier in the day, the Tigers' sophomore team will entertain Burlingame in a 4 p.m. affair. The public is also invited to attend that game.

Admission to the night game will be $6 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. A Terra Nova Booster pass is also available for purchasing. Price of a booster pass begins at $50. Parking in the student parking lot is available for $3. The Boosters' snack shack will provide a wide variety of food and drinks.

The varsity Tigers will play five more home games at Tiger Stadium. Each game is tied to a special event: Sept. 12 Olympic Club Night; Sept. 25 Alumni Night; Oct. 10 Homecoming; Oct. 24 Band Night and Nov. 17 Senior Night.
