All Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation (CSEC) patrons 12 years of age and older will be required to show proof of vaccination to attend games at Scotiabank Saddledome and McMahon Stadium.
You are considered fully vaccinated at least 14 days after your second dose of a 2-dose vaccine or a single dose of Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) at which time you are eligible to attend events.
All gates at venues have been expanded to include a screen for COVID-19 proof of vaccination prior to ticket scanning and security. Entry will not be granted for those who cannot provide the required documentation at the time of their event.
CSEC is participating in the Alberta Government Restrictions Exemption Program (announced September 15, 2021), and the detail of this policy meets or exceeds the requirements of the program.
Who does this policy apply to?
This policy applies to patrons 12 years and older. Children under 12 are exempt from this policy (except for mandatory mask wearing), but must be attended by an adult who meets the criteria of this policy while attending events at Scotiabank Saddledome and McMahon Stadium. Individuals aged 12-17 do not need to present photo identification along with their proof of vaccination.
What documentation is accepted for COVID-19 proof of vaccination?
The following documentation will be accepted:
- A valid Alberta vaccine record with QR code that shows name, birthdate, and vaccination type and date (paper or digital). Albertans 12 and older can get their vaccine record with QR code at https://www.alberta.ca/covidrecords
