Greater Cleveland Conference Passes:

  1. As member schools of the GCC, each school is allocated an equal number of conference passes to be used at the discretion of the individual schools.  Schools are asked to carefully distribute these given current spectator limitations (Note: a maximum of twenty (20) GCC passes will be accepted at any given event.
  2. GCC passes admit one (1) individual.

Senior Citizen Admission:

  1. Due to the unique and challenging requirements sites face in managing spectator capacity, the GCC will not be able to offer free admission to senior citizens during the 2020 fall seasons, however senior citizens (65+) who are part of player’s family purchasing a ticket with the player allocation may purchase a ticket at the student rate of $5 Varsity/JV events & $2 Freshman/Middle School (JV stand alone) events (Note: all tickets for varsity football are $7).

Faculty & Student Passes:

  1. Due to the unique and challenging requirements sites face in managing spectator capacity, the GCC will not be able to honor faculty passes or student passes during the 2020 fall seasons.

Live Streaming Options:

  1. In light of the spectator restrictions, many schools have partnered with live streaming suppliers so fans who may not have the ability to attend in person, may still have the ability to watch online.  Please contact your individual school’s athletic department for information on potential live streaming options for your school.
