Streaming is free for Spectrum subscribers and $9.99 per game for non-Spectrum subscribers.
The two competing schools in each game are provided with a specific number of tickets base on attendance limitations currently set by the Ohio Department of Health’s Sports Order due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which are at 15 percent of the permanent seating capacity, but no more than 1,500 spectators per game. There will be no general admission public sale of tickets for the state semifinals or state championship games. For the football state championship games, 1,500 spectators will be permitted, therefore both schools will receive 750 tickets.
