More high school state tournaments face possible paid admission


October 4, 2019


Skiers left the start line during the boys' Nordic skiing state meet 5K classic-style race on Feb. 14 at Giants Ridge Ski Resort in Biwabik, Minn. Fans are not charged admission to watch the Nordic and Alpline skiing state competitions.

Faced with its biggest budget deficit in its history, the Minnesota State High School League took aim Thursday at charging admission at all state tournaments, including five sports at which fans currently watch for free.

The league's board of directors, facing a $407,000 deficit for the current fiscal year, discussed with staff members the feasibility of debuting ticket sales at state tournaments for cross-country running, Alpine and Nordic skiing, golf and tennis at its board meeting in Brooklyn Center.
