A TASTE OF SASKATCHEWAN & ROCK THE RIVER RESCHEDULED TO 2021

SASKATOON, SK – SaskTel Centre announces that A Taste of Saskatchewan – Saskatoon’s annual food and entertainment festival and Rock 102’s Rock the River, Saskatchewan’s Classic Rock Festival, are no longer taking place this year due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. SaskTel Centre has been closely monitoring this unprecedented situation and was hopeful that we could deliver these popular summer events in July and August.

“After careful consideration, and in following the latest guidance from provincial authorities, we are sad to announce that SaskTel Centre’s two summer marquee events will not take place in 2020,” said Scott Ford, SaskTel Centre’s Executive Director. “Given the guidelines set out by the provincial government regarding mass gatherings, we are unable to proceed with these events. The health and wellbeing of our festival fans, artists, restaurant vendors, partners and staff is our top priority.”

A Taste of Saskatchewan was scheduled to take place in Kiwanis Memorial Park July 14 to 19, 2020 and would have been the 25th anniversary of the festival. A Taste of Saskatchewan is one of Saskatoon’s and Saskatchewan’s largest annual attended festivals, attracting over 100,000 visitors each year.

Rock the River, Saskatchewan’s Classic Rock Festival, was scheduled for August 14 to 16 and was already over 80% sold out and on pace to be the 7th consecutive sellout year. SaskTel Centre is currently working with our 2020 festival line-up artists by extending invitations to perform at Rock the River on August 20, 21, & 22, 2021. Fans who have purchased either single day tickets or three-day event packages for the 2020 event will have their tickets honoured for Rock the River 2021. Ticket purchasers are advised to hold onto their 2020 tickets. However, SaskTel Centre will provide refunds upon request, for the next 30 days, for fans who have purchased tickets through either Ticketmaster or the SaskTel Centre Box Office. Within the next 24-48 hours, all ticket purchasers will receive an email with further instructions.

SaskTel Centre extends sincere thanks for your understanding and patience at this very difficult time. We are grateful for your continued support and look forward to seeing you all in 2021.

CEBL STATEMENT REGARDING START OF 2020 REGULAR SEASON

“During this time of unprecedented challenge our hearts go out to all who have been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak through separation from loved ones, loss of income, illness or death. We are extremely grateful to the courageous health care workers and service providers who assume personal risk in battling the virus while keeping our communities healthy, safe, and functioning at their best. While basketball and all sports rightfully take a backseat to the realities of daily life, the Canadian Elite Basketball League has been preparing for a delay to the start of the 2020 season into June. With restrictions in place limiting the size of public gatherings and the closure of some team practice and game venues into June, opening the season as scheduled in May is not feasible. With the health and safety of our fans, players and staff being our highest priority, we will continue to plan contingencies for a new start date and creative formats that will enable us to play as many games as possible this summer. Our business model and staffs are created to be innovative and adaptable, which is especially important in today’s fluid environment. While no one can be certain of what the coming weeks will bring, our teams will continue to sign players and prepare to showcase many of Canada’s best professional players again this summer.

The CEBL is in a unique position to help restore and inspire our local communities when the time comes to once again enjoy the collective experience of a world class sports event. As we look forward to that day, we will remain in constant contact with public health and government officials who are leading us through these trying times.”

National Lacrosse League Announces Cancellation of Remaining Regular Season Games

League Looking At All Possible Scenarios For When A Return To Play Is Both Safe And Beneficial For All Involved Philadelphia, April 8, 2020- The National Lacrosse League (@NLL), the longest running and most successful professional lacrosse league in the world, today announced that the League will cancel the remainder of the regular season. League officials are looking at any number of scenarios to return to play when all stakeholders and health officials deem that possible. There is no timeline on when decisions will be made. The league suspended regular season play on March 12th due to COVID-19.

"With three weekends left in the regular season and the uncertainty about resumption during that time, we decided it is in the best interests of our players, coaches, staff, partners and fans to remove any uncertainty. Our goal is to find the best, and safest, solution for resumption of play, but what that looks like, and when that occurs, cannot be determined today," said NLL Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz. "Our primary focus is the long term health of all involved in the sport of lacrosse from a personal and a business standpoint, and we are consulting with our board, medical and municipal authorities, as well as leadership in other organizations across sports and entertainment, to determine when we will be able to effectively move forward. Whenever that is, we have plans in place that continue to evolve, and we will be ready to restart the process correctly and effectively."

"We continue to be in regular contact with the NLL and support their recent decision to halt the regular season, while continuing to figure out what a next step looks like," said Peter Schmitz, PLPA President. "Our primary focus remains the health and safety of our members and their input will be the deciding factor. We recognize the challenges that are presented with the unpredictability of the circumstances in which we find ourselves and will consider all options as presented by Nick and the NLL Leadership. We remain positive and optimistic for a return to the floor in the appropriate timeframe. "

Those options will be outlined in more detail as the situation becomes clearer across North America in the coming weeks.

Beyond the cancellation of the JUNO Awards, the Saskatchewan Rush and Saskatoon Blades seasons have been postponed until further notice. For all other upcoming events in the month of April, we will provide an update as quickly as possible. Tickets for shows that are cancelled will be refunded at the point of purchase.

SaskTel Centre has implemented rigorous cleaning protocols and enhanced operational procedures and policies as recommended by the PHAC.

The arena is sanitized after each event using hospital-grade disinfectants.

All areas of the building, including seats, door and door handles, are wiped down and disinfected following each event.

Elevator is wiped down and disinfected on an ongoing basis during and after each event. Following cleaning, testing of these areas will occur, using a 3M Clean-Trace ATP test device. Surfaces must be >250 RLU to be considered a pass.

Additional signage and hand sanitizing stations have been deployed throughout the arena and are available at the Guest Services location at section C.

Players and employees have also been briefed on the preventative guidelines and best practices provided by the PHAC and SHA, such as limiting all physical interactions with guests and their belongings. Team and staff spaces are regularly sanitized using the same procedures implemented in the arena and hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes are available throughout these areas. Any guest who is feeling sick, regardless of their symptoms, should always refrain from attending public events.

For all SaskTel Centre guests, we ask the following:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (ABHS) with at least 60% alcohol. For visibly soiled hands, soiling should be removed with an alcohol-based hand wipe first, followed by use of ABHS.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and clean your hands. There is no evidence that surgical masks protect persons who are not sick.
