Rogers Centre announces dates for alcohol service suspension
04/04/2009 5:57 PM ET

Rogers Stadium Limited Partnership, owner of Rogers Centre, and Aramark Entertainment Services, Rogers Centre concessionaire, are both committed to the safe service of alcohol. Their shared goal is a safe and enjoyable environment for all patrons at all events and they continue to direct their efforts to this goal. Notwithstanding this commitment, and our considerable efforts, infractions took place at certain past events.

As a result of these infractions, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario is suspending the liquor license for Rogers Centre for three event dates in 2009. The first suspension date is Tuesday, April 7, 2009 (Toronto Blue Jays vs. Detroit Tigers). The other two dates will be April 21, 2009 (Toronto Blue Jays vs. Texas Rangers) and August 1, 2009 (Toronto Argonauts vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers).

Guests who wish to exchange their tickets for either of the two Blue Jays game dates may do so in person at the Blue Jays box office (Rogers Centre - Gate 9) prior to the start of the April 7 or April 21 game, as applicable. Ticket exchanges are subject to availability.
