Since the semi finals are all televised for basketball, and all winners bracket games for hockey are free to watch, you would think they could make the semi finals of football too. However, those are one weekend tournaments and one site tournaments. This would be 5 days over two weekends of TV costs and venue costs.We are in the Centennial district and they sent home fliers about the game with our elementary age kids. I'm not into HS football, but my son loves all things football so I looked into it, and I was rather surprised at the cost. Likewise that it's not free to stream. I get that there are costs associated with the event, so maybe I'm being naïve. I know this has nothing to do with them, but my first response at seeing the cost of the game was "man, it would be good PR for the Vikes to cover the expenses and make the event free". Considering they're reaping most of the benefits of the state-owned stadium, it seems like a small gesture that would be really good PR.
$8-10 to go to most varsity games at schools. 50% increase for state seems legit IMO.
