EACS imposing specific crowd limits for winter sports

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – The limits on fans at basketball games and wrestling matches in one Fort Wayne school district are very specific.

East Allen County Schools yesterday released their crowd size order. The school says exactly 48 people will be allowed on the home side and 24 on the visitor side for basketball games.

At wrestling matches, there will be 120 fans on the home side and 60 on the visitor side. Cheerleaders will see 40 fans on the home side and 20 on the visitor side at their competitions.
