LINCOLN — The COVID-19 pandemic will play a big role in this year’s Nebraska State Volleyball Tournaments.
Earlier this fall, the Nebraska School Activities Association announced the tourney will be expanded from three days to four in an attempt to keep crowds contained, and that most games will be played at the Pinnacle Bank Arena instead of at sites across the city.
This week, the NSAA announced it will also limit who will be able to attend the event.
General-admission tickets will not be available during the state tournament, which begins Wednesday at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
Among the guidelines released by the Nebraska School Activities Association Sunday, all available tickets have been allocated to participating schools.
All tickets for the event must be purchased on line and redeemed using a mobile device. The only way these tickets can be purchased is through the schools involved in this year’s tourney. Tickets will not be available at Pinnacle Bank Arena, and anyone
Tickets will not be available at Pinnacle Bank Arena, and anyone without a ticket will be turned away at the door. The 200 and 300 levels will be open this year as officials look to spread out spectators during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans are also expected to wear a face covering while inside the arena.
Fans will be asked to exit the arena after completion of their team’s match to allow PBA staffers to sanitize seating areas for the next session. Students must sit in their respective reserved seating section and must abide by physical distancing requirements. The NSAA stressed that these guidelines are subject to change pending COVID-19 developments and the directives from the Lincoln/Lancaster County Health Department.
