FREMONT – This year’s high school football championships, like much else in 2020, will be conducted differently due to the pandemic.
The NSAA announced last week that the championships would no longer be played at Memorial Stadium, in an effort to keep teams and fans in their home regions as travel continues to be discouraged. Championships will now be played on each class’s top seed home field.
Under the guidance of Three Rivers Health Department, the following attendance restrictions have been put in place for the Class C2 State Championship Football game scheduled for 3:15pm on Friday, November 20, 2020, at Heedum Field in Fremont, NE.
Each team is being allowed an attendance of approximately 500 fans, at this time. Both schools are being asked to generate an attendance list that allows for 7 fans for each player, coach, cheerleader, and dance team member that will be finalized at 10:00am on Friday, November 20.
For fans to gain admittance to the game, their names must be on their respective school’s list. Names will be placed on the list only through the players, coaches, cheerleaders, and dance team members. Fans should not contact the respective schools to ask permission to get on the attendance list, as that permission will not be given. This game will not be open for general public attendance. Names must be added to the attendance list through the players, coaches, cheerleaders, and dance team members only.
Admission prices for the game are: $7 – Adults $5 – Students. Tickets to the game will not be sold online. The price of admission must be paid upon gaining entry to the stadium.
For those who are unable to attend, NET will stream the game and Mix 105.5’s Rich Ray will broadcast the action, both over the air and online.
Even these restrictions are subject to change. The possibility exists that attendance could be limited to household members only. That decision could be made as late as Thursday afternoon.
