Keep tuned for COVID-19 Vaccine Coverage Responses: Budweiser Gardens – London


Budweiser Gardens, an arena and concert venue in the heart of London, Ontario, is still searching for information after two industry colleagues announced upcoming COVID-19 vaccination guidelines.

On Tuesday, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) announced that customers and employees must provide proof of vaccination or a negative test result in order to gain access to any of its properties. These properties include the Scotiabank Arena, BMO Field, Coca-Cola Coliseum, Ford Performance Center and the OVO Athletic Center.

Live Nation Canada followed suit on Wednesday, announcing that ticket holders must meet the same requirements before they can be admitted to its concerts.
