As someone who has attended all the Jets games this season in the pressbox I can attest to the fact that things just are not the same without fans in the building.
Winnipeg Jets season ticket holders got an email today from the local NHL team providing some insight into their plans for the 2021-22 season.
Of course everything is predicated on approval from health authorities. Here is the email:
As the light at the end of the COVID-tunnel gets brighter, we trust that you are enjoying watching and listening to all the excitement of Winnipeg Jets hockey live on TSN and 680 CJOB. While we are extremely grateful to have safely welcomed our players and coaches back into the home of the Winnipeg Jets, Bell MTS Place is simply not the same without you – our passionate Winnipeg Jets fans.
Throughout the pandemic, we have worked closely with health authorities to discuss plans to welcome you back into Bell MTS Place when it is safe to do so. As the province moves ahead with its vaccination plan, and as COVID numbers continue to stabilize, we remain hopeful that partial attendance will be allowed to occur for this 2021 season. In the meantime, we continue to prepare, refining protocols and other safety measures. When we receive permission to open safely and securely, we look forward to sharing that information with you. In the interim, we are preparing and planning for a full 82-game regular schedule, with full or near capacity, for the 2021-22 season.
As we do so, we are pleased to share some important updates with you as it relates to your Winnipeg Jets Season Seats:
Your 2021-22 Regular Season invoice, typically sent in mid-March, will be delayed until mid-April – at that time, you will receive an invoice to confirm and select your annual payment plan which will include options to pay in full, pay in three (3) installments, or pay through a convenient monthly payment plan.
Payments for the 2021-22 season, including monthly payment plans, will commence on Monday, May 17, 2021.
In April, we will be launching a new virtual platform of Bell MTS Place. This platform will feature a revised seating map of Bell MTS Place providing for an increased variety of ticket price segmentations and the improved ability to better visualize the view from a specific seat location. More information will follow in April.
In the meantime, as we prepare for the upcoming season, we would appreciate if you could take a moment to confirm and update your Winnipeg Jets account information and preferences. We would value your input to ensure that our information is up to date.
Interestingly the email also mentions hope for fans in the building this season “we remain hopeful that partial attendance will be allowed to occur for this 2021 season.” Let’s hope from a societal perspective we are safe enough for that to be a reality.
