It’s a no-go for the 2021 Lions All Star football game

The 2021 Lions All Star game previously scheduled for June 26 at Shasta College has been canceled. The decision to cancel the game by the Lions All Star Football committee was made out of concern for the safety and health of both the players and the spectators. Logistically, it would have been very difficult to comply with the pandemic related restrictions placed on the game by the State and the University including such issues as the screening of athletes and spectators, testing requirements, the number of spectators permitted, and social distancing.

Although this year’s game has been canceled, in the coming weeks All Star North and South teams will still be selected. Coaches will be asked to select players from their school to be on the teams. The Lions All Star Football game will return in 2022.
