IMPORTANT – spectators need a Sideline pass

As an addition to the existing NYC Lions Sideline Rules, the new NYC American Youth Football League Sideline Rules will apply to all teams and spectators. These rules are necessary to ensure the spread of Covid among the team and spectators. Read requirements. 

Request your sideline pass online no later than Friday at 5 PM and it will be delivered via email. Spectators without a sideline pass will not be allowed to attend the game.

Most important change:  Only two spectators per Player are allowed but must stand/sit in designated areas, 30 feet from the sideline at all times, and must follow physical distancing guidelines.

Violation of the rules will result in penalties and forfeiture of a Team. We ask all parents/spectators to adhere to these rules.
