Dear Friends of the BMO Centre Sports Community:
Once again, we are deeply saddened to announce that the government of Ontario has just issued several new COVID-19 public health measures, some of which will directly affect the operations at the BMO Centre.
Effective, 12:01AM on Wednesday, January 5th , 2022, the BMO Centre will be closed for all league play, BMO Academy, field rentals and room bookings until 11:59PM on Tuesday, January 25th, 2022.
As these measure do not come into effect until this Wednesday, all league games and field rentals will operate as scheduled for today, January 3rd, 2022 and Tuesday, January 4th, 2022.
We suspect that many of you are frustrated with the ongoing uncertainties surrounding this virus and you are also wondering how these new measures will affect us in the long run. It is certainly our hope that this closure is temporary and that we will soon be fully operational. For now, we thank you for your patience and we cannot tell you how disappointed we are to once again be placed in this position.
At this time, it appears as though we will be able to complete most, if not all of our league schedules and programs for the winter session, but we will monitor this accordingly. If we need to cancel or shorten any of these, we will make the necessary arrangements for compensation/refunds etc.
We want to conclude by once again thanking you for your loyalty and kindness to us as we all navigate these ongoing challenges and make the required adjustments. Hopefully we will be back on the turf again soon.
With Many Thanks,
The BMO Centre London Management Team
