COVID-19 Fan Safety
TD Place looks forward to welcoming guest back to events and games, including Ottawa REDBLACKS, Ottawa 67’s, Ottawa BlackJacks & Atlético Ottawa, and doing so in a way that’s safe for fans, employees, players, and all other team personnel in accordance with guidelines provided by the Government of Ontario and Ottawa Public Health.
But we can’t do it alone. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to protect those around us.
The health and safety of TD Place’s guests and employees remain our top priority. To that end, effective September 12th we introduced enhanced COVID-19 health and safety measures that require all guests (12 years and older) and event staff of indoor and outdoor ticketed events to be fully vaccinated, which requires that 14 days have passed since your final dose. Guests and employees will need to provide proof of vaccination along with photo identification in order to obtain entry. Other than for verified medical exemptions, proof of a negative COVID-19 test will no longer be accepted for admittance to ticketed events at TD Place.

All guests will be required to read and accept the Fan Health Promise when purchasing a ticket OR accepting a ticket transfer.

Our dedicated team of experts is ready to help ensure that every ticketholder can enter the venue as quickly and safely as possible! Our Guest Services team can assist with digital ticketing and are prepared to answer your questions on the spot. They can be found at all entry gates and at the information booths throughout the entire game.
Which gate do I use to enter the venue?
All guests must enter through the assigned gate indicated on their mobile ticket. This will ensure the shortest path of travel once inside and will limit excess mobility to limit the possible spread of Covid-19.
Will my parking ticket also be digital?

If you have a pre-purchased or assigned parking pass for the underground parking lot at Lansdowne, the pass will load like a ticket into your device’s mobile wallet (i.e. Apple Wallet/Google Pay).

Is parking available in the underground parking garage at Lansdowne for all events?
A limited number of parking passes will be issued for all events. These passes will be pre-allocated (i.e. Otto’s club seats) or sold on a first-come-first-served basis.
