On a limited basis, spectators will be allowed back to OIA sporting events on Oct. 20.

The league posted the news on its Twitter page, noting the requirements of masks, proof of COVID-19 vaccination and social distancing.

Fans have not been permitted to see games involving public high schools statewide since the first lockdown in March of 2020.

The Oct. 20 timeline falls in line with the statewide mandate for loosening restrictions for outdoor and indoor events.

Actual size of crowds will vary from one site to another. Tickets will be available at ticketspicket.com.

    LOL, are they seriously going to charge admission for parents to watch their kids at sports like air riflery, bowling, cross country, soft tennis?

    As usual, a lot of unclear information from the OIA.

    What a stupid comment the OIA has never charged spectators at these events before Covid-19 just .
    Sounds like a disgruntled person no matter the they do someone always hoots start up drama

    ^^^Actually not a stupid comment. I put this out there because my co-worker has a son in bowling and tried to get clarification from the school about this. The answer was to wait for more guidance from OIA and be prepared for the possibility that they might have to use the ticket/pay app as the only way to get in.

    Whoa, look whose crying now, “Stop Crying” Baby…once again, look to the officials whom this state elected and whom make decisions. They will make the call to Charge or no charge what every sport it is. Not you or I, All we can do is abide by it. It’s De-mock-crazy at it’s best. Still not a good time to say “I told you so?”
