The Montreal Canadiens are awaiting approval from Quebec’s public health department to allow 10,500 spectators in the Bell Centre to watch Game 3. Game 3 will be on Friday as they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Stanley Cup Finals. The news was confirmed by the Canadiens’ executive vice-president and chief commercial officer France Margaret Bélanger in a video conference on Tuesday.
Bélanger said the request was made on Friday and expects a response by the end of the day, so tickets can be put up for sale. If allowed, the Canadiens are willing to ask for proof of COVID-19 vaccination if authorities require it. They have previously allowed 3,500 fans in the arena and they were not required to show proof of vaccination.
Bélanger said the arena can hold 10,500 fans safely as that is 50 per cent capacity. Also, people would be separated into 14 zones with separate entrances with masks being a requirement.
