Pioneer Athletic Conference Spectator Regulations
At the Pioneer Athletic Conference (PAC) Board meeting on Monday, September 21, 2020, the Board of Directors voted to approve the following spectator attendance regulations. All Home students participating in the athletic competition will be provided two tickets for that event. In addition, the following restrictions are in effect for each event:

  • All athletic contests are closed to the general public.
  • No Away spectators will be permitted into the game
  • No walk up ticket purchases will be available.
  • No person is permitted into the athletic contest without an approved Pioneer Athletic Conference ticket.
  • No away bands will be permitted

The Pioneer Athletic Conference understands the importance of spectators being a part of the game and experience for our student athletes. We believe that spectators add an important piece to athletic events and serve as a venue for our student athletes to be supported, uplifted, and encouraged during and after the contest. This is why our schools are encouraged to livestream the event for everyone’s viewing.
