FLINT – Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the Flint City Bucks were forced to play their six exhibition games without fans in attendance at Atwood Stadium.
But now that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has relaxed those restrictions and is allowing a limited number of fans to watch live sporting events, the Bucks have added one more exhibition game.
The Bucks, who won the USL League Two national championship during their first season in Flint, will be hosting Inter Detroit FC at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17 at Atwood Stadium. Under Whitmer’s relaxed restrictions, up to 1,000 fans will be permitted to purchase general admission tickets to watch the game live.
Fans will be required to meet several restrictions in order to attend the game. They include:
— Pre-purchasing tickets online as they will not be sold at the stadium. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by clicking here.
— Wearing masks at all times while inside Atwood.
— Staying six feet apart from other fans not living in the same household.
— Answering health screening questions and undergoing a temperature check prior to entering Atwood.
The game will also be televised live on the Bucks’ Twitter page and YouTube channel, which can be accessed through the team’s website.
The game will mark the second exhibition between the teams this season. Flint won 2-1 Sept. 6.
