ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Per the guidance of Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and recommendations from both the Departments of Health and Public Education, the 2020 NMAA State Basketball Championships will move forward without fans.

Only team members, officials, and essential facility and tournament workers will be allowed in the buildings. Members of the media will not be allowed entrance to either facility.
Although spectators will not be able to attend the games in person, all semifinals and finals will be broadcast live online via the NFHS Network (www.nfhsnetwork.com). A subscription fee of $10.99 will provide access to every state tournament game. The NMAA staff will also provide frequent updates via its various social media platforms throughout each contest.
