Two local school districts will allow fans in the stands on Friday night for high school football after a federal judge ruled Governor Tom Wolf's limits on gatherings are unconstitutional.

Butler, taking on McDowell, will allow fans in the stands but will not sell general admission or student tickets.

In a statement, Butler's superintendent Brian White said that each players, cheerleader and member of the band will get two tickets for family and/or friends.

White adds Butler's stadium is large enough to have more than 250 people in the stands while maintaining a safe distance.

Face coverings will be required for everyone in attendance and all those going are asked to complete a wellness check.

White says the plans are subject to change and the district will alert fans if there are any changes.

Karns City also announced earlier this week that fans will be allowed in the stands during their game against Dubois and that those in attendance must wear a face covering, socially distance and follow CDC guidelines.
