The Fargo Moorhead Athletics Youth Football announced the league is moving forward with the 2020 season in a press release Monday morning.

Under current rules all games will be held in Fargo.

Masks may be required. There are clear shields like what the NFL is looking at that will be available through Scheels. At this time, it is uncertain that cloth masks will be used.

All late fees are being waived for this year. The fundraiser cards at $100 per player will be required as usual. It is optional to sell them or keep them for personal distribution. This is to allow for social distancing.

Rosters will be finalized by Wednesday, July 15.


Organizers are hopeful that the Minnesota health order will change allowing the participation in North Dakota. If this does not change, FMA may request that a waiver be signed in order to

participate out of state.

Football is currently the lone fall sport listed in the high-risk category. Portions of the Minnesota order for organized recreation or club sports are to:

▪ Focus on skill development.

▪ Keep any “play” or interaction between players contactless.

▪ Should minimize intermixing between groups.

▪ Do not participate in games or tournaments for these high- and medium-risk sports,

even if these events are out of state where youth sports games/tournaments are



▪ Games and competitions are not allowed at this time for these high- and medium-risk
