Lions all-star game canceled
The 2021 Lions NorCal all-star football exhibition has been canceled due to concerns over the health and safety of players and spectators, according to a news release submitted on Wednesday.
The game was scheduled to be played June 26 at Shasta College in Redding.
Ray Odom, director of the Lions all-star football committee, said in part that state restrictions could not be worked around.
“Logistically, it was felt that it would be very difficult to comply with the pandemic-related restrictions placed on the game by the state and university, including issues like screening of athletes and spectators,” Odom said in a statement.
In the coming weeks, the all-star’s north and south teams will be selected based on coaches’ nominations.
The committee is hopeful that a traditional all-star game will return in 2022.
