Health Minister Christian Dube informed regarding the provincial government’s decision to lift the restrictions as he was speaking to reporters earlier today.

Dube further added that the spectators will have to show proof of vaccination and wear a mask to attend the events.

Welcoming the announcement, Groupe CH said it is delighted with the provincial government’s decision to allow the return to full capacity in venues in Quebec.

“We are obviously very happy with the government’s decision to allow us to operate at full capacity again. It goes without saying that this is great news for all the culture, entertainment and sports industries which have been hit hard by the pandemic. We are excited to see the fans back in our venues and we will make sure to maintain the standards of excellence in terms of health measures to ensure a return to normality with respect to security,” President, Sports and Entertainment of Groupe CH, France Margaret Bélanger said.

The CF Montréal also welcomed the announcement and said the club is pleased with the latest directives announced by Quebec’s health authorities on Thursday afternoon, which will allow the Club to play its remaining games at Stade Saputo at full capacity, starting October 8.

This new measure will be in place as of the Club’s next home game on October 16 at 1pm against the Philadelphia Union, CF Montreal said in a statement.
