The UIL made it official that football games can be streamed during the upcoming season.

“The Legislative Council also discussed the temporary suspension of Section 868(c) of the UIL Constitution and Contest Rules that prohibits the live telecast of a regular season football game on a Friday night.

A resolution approved on May 1 by UIL Legislative Council authorizes the UIL executive director to alter and/or waive rules in the UIL Constitution and Contest Rules necessitated by any disruption of normal business operations related to COVID-19, orders of the state or federal government, or related COVID-19 concerns.

The temporary suspension of the rule prohibiting live telecasts during regular season Friday night football games is under consideration for the 2020 football season under this resolution. Until UIL releases official information regarding implementation around this issue, the current rule remains in place. Pending guidance from state authorities, further information will be forthcoming prior to the start of the 2020 football season.”
