El Paso ISD to allow fans at outdoor games, with limited capacity

Monday morning, officials with EPISD announced that the district will open its stadium gates to football fans beginning October 1.

All games will have limited seating in order to comply with social distancing, per UIL guidelines and all fans will be required to wear face masks at all times.

Fan capacity will vary by stadium.

Next week’s games, October 1-3, will feature Senior Nights in recognition of all EPISD seniors participating in games this season. Fans for these games only will be limited to parents and guests of senior students participating in the game, such as players, band, dance/cheer and ROTC. This will ensure that the families of seniors are able to take part in these special events.

Beginning October 8, games will be open to all with continued limited capacity. Families of students participating in each game will have priority access to tickets.

EPISD Athletics is working on an online ticketing system to facilitate this process.

District officials added that they are working on protocols to allow fans at indoor games in the near future.
