KSHSAA changes the site for the Class 4A state championship football game

Posted Nov 16, 2020 11:21 AM

TOPEKA, Kan. – The KSHSAA has decided the best option for the 4A State Football Championship would be to relocate the game to Gowans Stadium in Hutchinson and to play the game on Friday, November 27 at 1:00 PM.

The KSHSAA stated that they maintain a very strong relationship with the staff of Topeka Hummer Sports Park and Topeka Public Schools, and while they would be very confident in playing there as originally scheduled, the local restrictions would have made it very challenging to have cheer, band, and spectators be part of the event. While limitations exist in Hutchinson (and qualifying school leaders will learn specifics in the days ahead), the opportunity for student and community support is increased in Hutchinson. They plan to return to Hummer as soon as the environment allows.
