Family members of high school athletes who compete in Tacoma Public Schools’ outdoor stadiums can now attend competitions. That means football games and soccer matches in the Lincoln Bowl, Mount Tahoma Stadium and Stadium Bowl will be open to spectators.
This change complies with Phase 3 of Gov. Jay Inslee’s Healthy Washington: Roadmap to Recovery plan, in which spectators can attend outdoor venues with permanent seating with capacity capped at 25 percent.
Tickets will be given to athletes, who can then share them with family members; tickets will not be available at the gate.
Guests must present their ticket and a completed COVID-19 health survey at the gate. They must also wear a mask and maintain social distancing from people outside of their household.
TPS is working on a plan to safely accommodate spectators at other outdoor venues for the next season of high school sports, which starts March 22 for Lincoln, Mount Tahoma, Stadium and Wilson, and March 29 for Foss.
Anyone can watch livestreamed games for free by registering at nfhsnetwork.com. No subscription is needed.
