LANSING, Mich. (WJRT) - A very limited number of fans will be allowed at the remaining high school football and volleyball playoff games in Michigan this winter.

The Michigan High School Athletic Association announced that football teams will receive 125 tickets apiece while volleyball teams will receive 50 tickets apiece to distribute among immediate family of players. The tickets will be available on the GoFan digital ticket system.

The MHSAA previously prohibited any spectators when football and volleyball teams return to action. Football teams are resuming with the regional finals and state semifinals on Saturday while volleyball teams are restarting with the quarterfinals on Jan. 12.

All spectators not living in the same household who receive a ticket to each game must sit 6 feet apart and wear a face covering at all times.

Spectators will not be allowed at any of three swimming/diving state finals on Jan. 15 and 16. The MHSAA said those meets involve a significantly higher number of athletes and allowing spectators for each participant would exceed indoor gathering limits.

The MHSAA plans to livestream the swimming/diving and volleyball semifinals and finals on its website. FOX Sports Detroit also plans to broadcast the state football state finals against this year.
