Conroe ISD's 2020 varsity football season kicks off this week with a new ticketing system and in-person safety precautions related to COVID-19 implemented for the start of the 2020 campaign. The district also announced that all varsity football games will be streamed live this fall due to limits on in-person attendance at the district's two stadiums.

Game tickets will be sold this year exclusively through CISD's online portal, which may be accessed using students' district credentials or by registering for an account. All ticketed guests at CISD athletic events will be required to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms before entering a stadium on game days, to wear masks while in the stands and to maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet between groups. Tailgating outside the district's stadiums is prohibited this year.


Ticketing purchases for football games will be prioritized for the family members of game participants, including athletes, band members and cheerleaders, with parents' tickets set to be available beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturdays prior to each contest. Junior and senior CISD students may purchase tickets beginning at 1 p.m. on Mondays before each game, followed by freshmen and sophomores beginning at 1 p.m. on Tuesdays before a game. Finally, members of the public may purchase any remaining tickets beginning at 1 p.m. each Wednesday before a game.

Given capacity limitations at both CISD arenas, the district will also host YouTube streams of all home games throughout the season. Contests at Woodforest Bank Stadium may be viewed live here, and Moorhead Stadium games may be viewed here.

The district's varsity football season is set to begin with games featuring Caney Creek, Grand Oaks and The Woodlands high schools Sept. 24 and Conroe, Oak Ridge and The Woodlands College Park high schools Sept. 25. The 11-week schedule features a slate of eight to 10 games for each school and will run through the weekend of Dec. 3-5.
