SCIOTO COUNTY — The state of Ohio’s Department of Health order, which restricts the number of people which can attend youth sporting events to 15-percent capacity of the school’s athletic facilities, have put into question how people can watch their favorite team or games this fall if they’re not able to attend in person.
In the early stages of school restarting, several Scioto County school districts have began streaming their games via the school or school district’s Facebook page or for a pay-per-view subscription.
This hopes to be a season-long guide for fans of Scioto County sports who seek to cheer on their favorite team or community, but are unable to in person due to the restrictions currently in place.
This story will be updated as more schools begin to announce to the public their plans for streaming or after the first week of games — when school districts host their live streams.
For school districts considering streaming their games this school year, the OHSAA recommends a platform called BoxCast as the easiest to establish your stream in the early stages.
