CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (WJW) — The Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District has barred the general public from its Friday football game against Euclid High School out of an “abundance of caution.”
The only fans allowed at the Friday, Oct. 13, game at Heights High, 13263 Cedar Road, will be family members of Heights High School Tigers and Euclid High School Panthers players, cheerleaders and members of the marching band, according to a Wednesday Facebook post from the district.
Concerns over spectator safety due to school violence have put the Euclid team’s recent games in flux, FOX 8 News reported.
“Thank you for your understanding. And go Tigers!” the Heights High notice reads.
Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Get tickets here.
