If you’re planning on attending a Toronto FC match later next month, you will need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result to gain access, says Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment.

“To continue to combat the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, MLSE announced that effective mid-September attendees (including employees, event staff and guests) will be required to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result to gain access to its arenas, stadium and restaurants,” the company released in a statement Tuesday afternoon.

“As an organization that hosts more than four million fans per year, at hundreds of events in multiple venues, MLSE is proud to serve as a central gathering place in Toronto and recognizes its responsibility to provide attendees with a safe and secure environment,” MLSE continued. “We believe these health and safety protocols are the key to allowing our communities and businesses to reopen safely, to permit full capacity events, and to protect against further lockdowns.”

Exact details and dates on the implementations of these new health and safety protocols will be provided in the coming weeks.
