LANSING, Mich. — Limited numbers of spectators will be allowed for the final rounds of the Michigan High School Athletic Association Football and Girls Volleyball tournaments, thanks to approval received Wednesday from the state health department.

Football teams will receive 125 tickets, to be divided among game participants for purchase by immediate family members via GoFan, according to a news release.

Spectators in different households must be spaced out by six feet and maintain distancing at all other times, including arrival and departure from the game facility.

They’ll also need to wear face masks at all times.

Football starts up again on Saturday with 8-Player Semifinals and 11-Player Regional Finals.

Volleyball restarts Jan. 12 with Quarterfinals and concludes with Semifinals and Finals that weekend at Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek.

The Lower Peninsula Girls Swimming & Diving Finals will conclude that sport’s season Jan. 15-16 at three sites.

However, spectators will not be allowed at those events because those meets will include much higher numbers of participants, and adding spectators would push the total number of people in attendance past what is considered safe for indoor events.
