Government of Ontario clarifies new capacity limits at indoor sport and recreation facilities
December 16, 2021

Ontario Soccer continues to work in consultation with the Government of Ontario, through the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries as we communicate important government directives and updates related to the current global pandemic.

The Government of Ontario announced on Dec. 15, 2021 that it is introducing new public health measures, in response to the recent status of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of those changes, effective Dec. 18, 2021 at 12:01 a.m. the Government of Ontario will introduce a 50 per cent capacity limit to indoor sports and recreational fitness venues with a capacity of 1,000 or more patrons.

Ontario Soccer has reviewed the new details with the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries and confirmed the interpretation for sport.

The new capacity limits are only applicable to spectators. The limits on participants and facility staff remain unchanged.

Ontario Soccer has updated the Return to Play Guide and the changes can be found on page 6 of the Guide.
