The Winnipeg Jets will require all fans attending home games at Canada Life Centre this upcoming season to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

True North Sports and Entertainment, the owners and operators of the Jets and Canada Life Centre, said in a statement Wednesday that “the majority” of season ticket holders told the group this proof of vaccination is important going forward. True North plans to have the arena filled to capacity for games.

The policy does not apply to players.

The Jets are believed to be the first NHL team to require attendees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Winnipeg plays its first home game against the Anaheim Ducks on Oct. 21.
