Spectator capacity limited at upcoming home high school football games – community invited to watch varsity games live online.
This year’s sports season is like none other we’ve seen before. With limitations on seasons, on spectators, and other “normal” parts of athletics, our focus this fall is on our student athletes. The steps we are taking – in alignment with Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) guidance – ensure we are doing everything we can to support a safe and healthy return to play.
While football has traditionally been a community event within the Eastern Carver County School District, this season will look different. Football games held on our district fields this fall will be just that – not community events but games.
Per MDH and MDE guidelines, stadium spectator capacity is capped at 250. This 250 spectator capacity will be split evenly between home and away teams, allowing for each competing school/community an allocation of 125 tickets. Those with tickets are strongly encouraged to bring masks and wear them outside the stadium where they can’t maintain six feet of social distance from others. The health and safety of our teams and our community are of the utmost importance.
If you do not have a pre-sold ticket, please do not come to school grounds on game day. We understand this is hard, but we need the support and help of our community to keep our case numbers low, athletes playing, and our schools open.
As an alternative, both Chaska and Chanhassen will provide live-streaming opportunities so the community can watch the varsity home games in as close to real-time as possible:

Keeping our student athletes, our district, and our broader community healthy and safe is our top priority. We appreciate the partnership and cooperation of our school communities as we work together to support this unprecedented football season.
