BLUE JAYS STATEMENT ON 2020 SEASON HOME
The Toronto Blue Jays extend its sincerest thanks to Mayor Tory, the City of Toronto, and Toronto Public Health; Premier Ford, the Province of Ontario, and the Chief Medical Officer of Health; and Deputy Prime Minister Freeland, the Government of Canada, and the Public Health Agency of Canada, for their detailed consideration and partnership throughout this process.
“From the onset of discussions with league and government officials, the safety of the broader community– our fans – and the team remained the priority of everyone involved, and with that, the club completely respects the federal government’s decision,” said Mark Shapiro, President & CEO, Toronto Blue Jays. “Though our team will not be playing home games at Rogers Centre this summer, our players will take the field for the 2020 season with the same pride and passion representative of an entire nation. We cannot wait until the day comes that we can play in front of our fans again on Canadian soil.”
The club is in the process of finalizing the best home location for the remainder of the 2020 season and will share an update as soon as it is available.
