Valour FC today announce the Canadian Premier League Kickoff event will now be open to a maximum of 2,000 fans per match at IG Field, which equates to six percent of the stadium’s capacity. The first match with fans in attendance will occur on July 7th with fans required to be physically distanced while in attendance.
“We are encouraged by this first step in being able to welcome fans back to IG Field,” said Wade Miller, President and CEO of the Winnipeg Football Club. “It will be great for soccer fans in our province to be able to get out and cheer on their Valour FC and the Canadian Premier League.”
Tickets will be sold on a per-match basis beginning on Monday July 5th at 10:00 am. Valour FC season ticket members will get first access to tickets for The Kickoff event matches, which are managed by the CPL and are not normal Valour FC home matches. Valour season ticket members will be the first in line to secure tickets for Valour FC matches along with special offers on double header matches.
“We are projecting that capacity will increase dramatically as vaccination rates increase in our province, with aim to have a full stadium in August,” said Miller.
Only fully vaccinated fans will be allowed to attend at this time. Fans must have received two vaccine doses and can attend matches as of 14 days following their second dose. To enter IG field, fans must present their Manitoba Immunization Card (either a digital or physical card). Fans will be placed in ‘pod seating’ physical distanced from the next group of fans and be required to purchase food along with alcoholic drinks.
