“We’re encouraging any family and friends of either team, and the general public, to purchase tickets ahead of time to ensure we can admit you into the stadium,” said Amanda Rosman, general manager for the DuBois Bucks.
“Fans can purchase tickets at the front gate on Friday night, but seating capacity will be limited to comply with the guidelines set by the state.”
