PROOF OF IMMUNIZATION & IDENTIFICATION 

To enter the Winnipeg Soccer Federations facilities, you must must provide with the following information to staff at the entrances:

ADULTS (18 years of age or older)

  • All adults (18 years of age or older) must present a scannable immunization QR code or card along with government issued photo identification.

  • Other immunization records will be accepted if approved by the Province of Manitoba. Please verify that you have the correct documentation prior to arriving at the facility.

 

YOUTH (12-17 years of age)

  • All youth (12-17 years of age) must provide proof that they have received at least one dose of a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine or proof of a pharmacist-confirmed negative result from an approved rapid antigen test within 72 hours of the activity. Public health orders do not allow other health care providers to confirm a test result.

  • Youth must also provide proof of identification. Acceptable government issued ID includes driver’s licence, provincial health cards, passports, status cards, permanent resident cards, citizenship cards, social insurance cards and birth certificates. Students may also use school-issued student ID cards.

  • Youth under 12 who appear older should be prepared to present photo identification if asked for proof of age.

MASKS

  • You must wear a mask upon entry to the facility and at all times within the facility (exceptions are noted below.)

  • Masks may be removed once on the field and during play. You must re-apply your mask prior to leaving the field area and it is to be worn until you have fully exited the facility. 

  • Your member organization may require masks to be worn at other times while on the field. Check with your organization for their full policies and adhere accordingly.

  • Spectators must wear their mask at all times unless they are consuming food or beverages. Intervals when masks are removed must be short and masks re-applied as much as possible.  You may be asked to re-apply your mask if intervals are too long.

PLAYERS AND GAME PERSONNEL

  • If you arrive early for your game, proceed to the concourse until it is closer to your game time.

  • At field level, use the designated waiting areas at each field until the current game has concluded and everyone has exited the bench area. 

  • Field Entrance: Access the fields through the main entrance doors.

  • Field Exit: Use the closest side door to your field to go up to the concourse and then proceed to the facility exit doors. Do not exit through the main doors as those are for entry only.

  • Refer to the field maps located at the facilities for directions or click here to view the field maps for:  WSF Soccer South and WSF Soccer North

SPECTATORS

  • Due to the limit on allowable facility capacity, only ONE spectator is permitted per player.

  • Spectators are not allowed at field level and should remain on the concourse.

  • Do not congregate in the main lobby at any time.

 

CHANGE ROOMS

  • Dressing rooms will be assigned, as available. Masks must continue to be worn inside the change rooms. Space is limited so alternate usage with your teammates as needed and maintain physical distancing at all times. Quickly change and exit the room and facility.

  • If teams want to store items inside the dressing rooms, they may sign out a key from the Information Booth. Personal items can also be taken to your field and stored behind your bench area.

 

ADHERANCE

  • All protocols set forth by the Province of Manitoba, Winnipeg Soccer Federation, Manitoba Soccer Association and Sport Manitoba must be adhered to at all times.

  • Any group not adhering to protocols may have their rental immediately cancelled with no refund provided.

  • If a COVID fine is issued to the WSF due to the behaviour of a member of your group, your group will be responsible for the full cost of the fine.
