Winnipeg Jets season ticket holders will have to give up their seats for some of the upcoming home games due to new provincial public health orders.
With capacity at the Canada Life Center limited to 50 percent (about 7,500 seats) for the next four home games, True North Sports and Entertainment (TNSE) has modified the seating arrangements to reflect the restrictions.
Subscribers will be offered their usual seats for two of the following games:
• December 27 against Minnesota Wild
• December 29 against the Chicago Blackhawks
• January 8 against Seattle Kraken
• January 10 against Minnesota Wild
TNSE told CTV News that the games have been randomized into two packages: December 27 and January 8; and on December 29 and January 10. Season ticket holders were informed about their assigned package earlier this week. In that email, ticket holders were told that “the additional funds will remain as credit on your account.”
TNSE noted that the games had to be “completely reset”, so all seat holders will need to load new tickets on their smartphones, and previously transferred tickets will need to be re-transferred.
Fans who purchased tickets for a single game will receive a refund from TNSE.
The hockey club will launch a limited number of seats for reduced capacity games. Season ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase these seats before the public.
Health orders, including headquarters capacity, are in effect through January 12, 2022. The Jets’ next home game after the orders expire is January 15 against the Ottawa Senators.
