OHSAA Releases Football Regional Final Playoff Pairings  
All regional finals are Friday, November 17
COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio High School Athletic Association released the football regional final playoff pairings Sunday afternoon, with neutral sites hosting fourth-round games at 7 p.m. this Friday, November 17.
The higher seeded team is the designated home team throughout the regional playoffs.
Later this week the OHSAA will announce how the regional champions will be paired for the state semifinals on Friday, November 24. The state championship games are November 30, December 1 and 2 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.
Tickets for all playoff games are available on Mondays at www.ohsaa.org/tickets. Details on state championship game tickets are posted at: https://www.ohsaa.org/news-media/articles/tickets-now-on-sale-for-ohsaa-football-state-championships
Neutral sites receive a hosting stipend from the OHSAA and also keep revenue from concessions, parking, 50-50 raffles and program sales. In addition, the OHSAA pays for the officials.
Of note, a team’s regional seed, state rank and overall record do not factor into the decisions on neutral site locations.
Without schools being willing to host games, the OHSAA would not be able to use neutral sites. Many factors go into determining locations for each game, and rarely can a site be found that is exactly halftime between the two schools. Once a potential site is determined, the school must be available and willing to host a game on the requested night.
The OHSAA crowned state champions in girls volleyball, girls soccer and boys soccer over the weekend. Congratulations to girls volleyball state champions Kings Mills Kings (Division I), Cincinnati Mercy McCauley (Division II), Mentor Lake Catholic (Division III) and New Bremen (Division IV).

Congratulations to girls soccer state champions Cuyahoga Fall Walsh Jesuit (girls Division I), Cincinnati Summit Country Day (girls Division II), Cincinnati Country Day (Division III), Cleveland St. Ignatius (boys Division I), Tipp City Tippecanoe (boys Division II) and Willoughby Andrews Osborne Academy (boys Division III).
