VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Canucks will have fans in Rogers Arena on Sunday for the first time in almost 19 months.
The Canucks are at home to the Winnipeg Jets in a pre-season game.
Canadian NHL teams played in empty arenas for months because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rogers Arena will operate at 50 per cent capacity Sunday for season-ticket holders only and their guests, Canucks Sports and Entertainment said Friday in a statement.
Spectators must wear masks unless eating and drinking and provide proof of vaccination to enter the building.
Information about single-game tickets for the regular season should be be available next week, the Canucks said.
Vancouver's home-opener Oct. 26 is against the Minnesota Wild.
