2020 MHS FALL ATHLETIC SPECTATOR GUIDE

Posted on: August 26, 2020

With Covid-19 safety guidelines in effect, please note some of the following protocols put into place at Milford High School athletic venues for the best safety of our student-athletes, staff, & fans:

DUE TO STRICT CAPACITY LIMITS, NO BOOSTER PASSES OR OTHER PASSES WILL BE ACCEPTED THIS YEAR. ALSO MEVSD WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET INTO AN EVENT WITHOUT A TICKET UNLESS DEEMED ESSENTIAL.

                                    (all games will be posted 24 hours before their start time)

Capacity: The Governor's order permits us to only allowed only 15% maximum of our athletic facilities seating capacity. Based on this number, here are the maximum number of spectators we can have at each athletic venue:

Eagles Stadium: 644 people

Charity Lucas Field: 168 people

MHS Main Gym: 249 people

Tennis Courts: TBD with standing room

Schedules: https://www.milfordathletics.org/schedules/

Ticket Information: We have gone to an online ticketing system (HomeTown Ticketing) for all MHS athletic events. All sports/levels that sell tickets will have an online link open 24 hours prior to the game for fans to purchase/reserve their tickets Fans can purchase ahead of time or purchase at the door. Cash is not preferred, but can be still used to purchase tickets at the gate.

Varsity Football Tickets: With the limited amount of seating capacity and high demand, we anticipate tickets will only be made available to families of football/cheerleaders/dance/band students who are on the active roster and playing/performing that evening. If any left over tickets are available, we will open those up to senior students. There will not be any tickets available to the general public this year.

Spectator Note: Due to extremely limited capacities at our facilities we are asking that all lower level teams (Freshman, JVB, JV) players and parents not stay around for games that follow. In order for us to accommodate parents for their child's game, this is critical. We are also asking for games played at MHS Main Gym or Charity Lucas Field, we limit fans to (2) per student-athlete to help us accomodate all parents of both teams. Games at Eagle Stadium will be able to accommodate (4) fans per student-athletes (except varsity football)

Infants/Children Revised Policy: Typically any non-school aged kids (under 5) are permitted without paying and do not need a ticket. The Clermont County Public Health Department has stated ALL children no matter what age count towards our capacity numbers. With strict orders limiting our capacity, all children will need to purchase a ticket this year. This is temporary and we hope won't be long term.

Streaming Games: Since there is a possibility that we will not be able to accommodate all spectators
at our venues, we will be live streaming many of our MHS athletic events. Below is the link to all broadcasted events (note: there may be a small charge to watch depending on the game/event. All monies go back to offset admission costs lost by Covid restrictions) https://boxcast.tv/channel/wjcvw77tgtxiczempend

Self-Wellness Checks: ALL FANS SHOULD CONDUCT A SELF-WELLNESS CHECK BEFORE COMING TO ANY MEVSD SCHOOL PROPERTY. PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK SHOULD STAY HOME. If you have possible symptoms of Covid-19 or other illnesses, please do not come to athletic events. Fans are asked to screen themselves before they come to ensure they do not have a temperature of 100.0F or higher.

Seating/Social Distancing: All Milford Athletic facilities will be marked with an Eagle decal designating where spectators are required to sit. All seating markers will be in groups of 4 or less. Only members of the same family/household may sit together. All designated areas will ensure fans are socially distant (6ft from other fans) at all times. All fans MUST practice social distancing at all times while at any MEVSD event. All visiting spectators must sit in designated visiting seating areas. All Milford spectators must sit in designated home seating areas. Signs will clearly mark each section.

Masks:  
All fans are required to wear masks at all times on MEVSD property. We expect all away events to have a similar policy.

Parking/Passes: Our Athletic Boosters have decided to not offer booster passes and/or parking passes for the 20-21 school year. Please know there will not be any reserved parking for any events. No passes will be accepted at the game and all attendees must have a ticket.

Entrance/Exits: All entrance and exits will flow one-way. Signage will clearly mark these areas and which direct fans are to proceed.

Bathrooms: All bathrooms will be one way (entrance and exit and clearly marked). Due to some size limitations of bathrooms, capacity limits may be put in place. Signage will clearly mark these numbers.

Tailgating: Under NO circumstances will we allow tailgating or mass gatherings at athletic events. We will have no tolerance policy on this and violators are subject to dismissal from our property.

Concessions: Due to small allowance of capacity and healthy/safety guidelines, we will not be offering concessions at our athletic venues this year. Spectators will be allowed to bring their own food & drinks in our facilities. Coolers will not be permitted.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact our athletic office at 513-576-2208 or zupka_a@milfordschools.org.

All in attendance should be keenly aware of the importance of following all safety protocols. All involved must follow the direction provided by the Milford Athletic Administration. The reason for this direction is the safety of all participants and to allow student athletes from both teams to continue to have the opportunity to play the game that they love.
