Per the Order of Governor DeWine and the Ohio Department of Health, spectator seating for an outdoor facility of 10,000 maxes at 1,500. Spectator seating for an indoor facility of 2,000 maxes at 300. Smaller venues may only use 15% of the fixed facility seating. None of the Southwestern Conference schools have the seating capacity of 10,000 or greater for an outdoor facility or 2,000 or greater for an indoor facility.
In keeping with this Order, the Southwestern Conference will allow the purchase of two tickets per student participant for both “Home and Away.” For football, student participant is defined as athlete, cheerleader, and band member.
· Home event: (2) tickets per student-participant
· Away event: (2) tickets per student-participant
Additionally, the home school of an event has the ability to add additional spectator ticketing should space allow under the 15% rule for capacity. This will only be applied after the home school has accommodated the visiting team’s student-participant ticket demand.
The Southwestern Conference reserves the right to review its spectator capacity/ticketing standard on a regular basis. Updates will be made accordingly.
Varsity Football – $7
Varsity & JV Soccer; Varsity Volleyball – $6
Freshmen & JV Football; Freshmen & JV Volleyball – $3
Middle School: Football, Volleyball – $3
Due to the limitations of spectators, the Southwestern Conference has suspended conference passes, nor is honoring staff IDs for the 2020 season. The conference looks forward to being able to reinstate passes and IDs when limits are lifted.
**Please note: after each contest, student participants and their ticket holders will be expected to leave the facility prior to a new contest beginning.
Please feel free to contact your district’s athletic director with any questions.
