Due to Barnes County being elevated to the “yellow risk level” for COVID spread on Thursday, we are restricted to 250 people in attendance for each match Saturday in Valley City.
Face coverings are required for all fans, who are also asked to physically distance by households while at the event. Spectators who are unable to wear masks for health reasons are asked to physical distance themselves at the event, or consider watching the game through VCSU's online video broadcast. VCSU will have face coverings available for purchase if a spectator forgets to bring their own.
