For Washburn’s home game on Nov. 7, the university is allowing approximately 1,750 free tickets for fans.

The university said it’s only allowing 25% of the stadium capacity.

Fans in attendance have to wear face masks and practice social distancing.

“We are looking forward to the opportunity to prepare and compete this fall,” Ichabod football head coach Craig Schurig said. “Playing Northwest Missouri and Central Missouri will allow our guys to face two outstanding MIAA programs and evaluate where we are. We have been able to practice so this will provide some added energy and enthusiasm to our preparation. We plan on playing the majority of our guys. Getting game opportunities is very important for the development of our team and we are thankful for the opportunity to compete.”
