BAINBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WJW)– When the Kenston Bombers take flight in football, soccer and volleyball this year, their squadron of fans will be limited by COVID-19 restrictions.

Kenston’s home opener in football in on Sept. 11. The capacity at Bomber Stadium is 5,000 people, but under state of Ohio guidelines that limit seating to 15 percent of capacity. So only 750 spectators will be allowed into the stadium.

Under an agreement between Kenston and other schools in the Western Reserve Conference, two tickets for each football, soccer and volleyball athlete, cheerleader, dance team and band member will be sold for home games. Two tickets per player also will be sold for away conference games.

WRC members said their goal was to make sure that at least family and friends can watch the students perform.

“We want to see our kids play and so given the limitations that are imposed during this, you’re going to have limited options. So we’re happy that we’ve been given the opportunity to present those options to them. We’re going to leave it to the students and those families to determine who’s going to come to the game,” Kenston Athletic Director Reid Guarnieri told FOX 8.
