There will be fans in the stands for high school football games in Lexington and Louisville. If you want to be a part of the action, you just better know a guy.
Fayette and Jefferson county officials released this week plans to host fans at sporting events. In the Fayette County Public School system participants are limited to four or five members of a player’s immediate family. Each name must be submitted for a will call list prior to the game. Attendance will be capped at 20% for Jefferson County Public Schools. The general public will not be able to buy tickets to the games. Players will distribute tickets to friends and family prior to kickoff.
Fans will be subject to temperature screenings and a health questionnaire upon arrival. Mask wearing is mandatory for everyone who is not actively playing on the field. Cheerleaders and bands will still be able to participate in the gameday activities.
Rules vary for the private schools. At DeSales High School in Louisville, visiting players will receive two tickets for family members, while the home team will get four apiece. Lexington Catholic will employ the same protocols while Lexington Christian Academy is limiting tickets to three per home team player and two for each visitor.
Unfortunately, this means that most of the people reading this will not be able to attend Kroger’s KSR Game of the Week this Friday between Frederick Douglass and North Hardin. Fortunately, you can still stream the game on PrepSpin’s YouTube channel for free, which you will be available to access Friday night right here at Kentucky Sports Radio. Technology has made it easier than ever to broadcast these games. If your school is streaming games this season free of charge, please share it in the comment section and we’ll do our part to share it to the masses.
