Currently the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System is only allowing 500 spectators at outdoor sporting events.  Allowing 300 fans for home teams and 200 fans for visiting team fans.

With so many local stadiums allowing thousands in attendance we are still well below the state and local capacity limit of 50% as of 5 p.m. March 26th.  Many teams have large rosters and when you add cheer and band it is impossible for even 2 parents per student participant to attend, let alone the student body.

We are asking during these playoff games to please allow more fans in attendance, our students are currently in school 4 days a week in an increased capacity. We feel the outdoor games deserve the opportunity to also have more in attendance, while still adhering to the social distancing and mask mandates currently in place.

Our kids deserve to not only have their parents in attendance but also the student body to cheer them on. This school year has been hard enough on students and student athletes they deserve the full support of family and friends at their playoff games.
