Streaming and Cable TV viewing options available for week two of high school football

(10/14/2020) High school football returns early this week with four games on Thursday and one match-up on Friday due to the upcoming MEA break. As a reminder, Minnesota State HighCable TV and streaming options for Thursday and Friday nights School League (MSHSL) guidelines limit attendance to 250, and those tickets will be distributed through teams and not available for public purchase. 


To minimize the health and safety risk to the community, students and staff, Anoka-Hennepin has closed high school campuses on the evenings of home football games - including all areas surrounding stadiums and parking lots - from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Only pre-sold ticket holders and predetermined essential personnel are permitted on campuses. Failure to comply may result in school consequences and possible law enforcement involvement.


A preferred option for supporting your favorite team is to view games live on cable television or through live streaming via local programming partners QCTV, North Metro TV and/or CTN Coon Rapids.
