‘Limited number’ of spectators to be allowed at MIL sporting events

The Maui Interscholastic League will allow a “limited number” of parents and guardians to attend high school sporting events “effective immediately,” the league announced on Tuesday.

On Jan. 7, the league announced that no fans would be allowed to attend events for the time being because of the recent surge of COVID-19 cases in the county.

That policy was revised Tuesday in a news release emailed to The Maui News.

“Effective immediately, a limited number of parents/guardians of the participating teams will be allowed to attend MIL events with the amount to vary depending on the venue and the ability/resources to incorporate mitigation procedures,” a new release from the league said.

Several coaches have told The Maui News that each player on soccer teams will be allowed to have four guests attend matches. MIL boys soccer matches begin today — MIL girls matches began last week.

“During this time, depending on the venue, events may be streamed on the NFHS network or other streaming services offered by the schools,” the news release said.

The news release on Jan. 7 said that the MIL athletic directors will access the situation weekly.

“As the situation remains fluid, the MIL will continue to meet to assess, discuss any issues and/or concerns, and determine any adjustments,” Tuesday’s news release said. “We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.”
