SASKATOON, Saskatchewan – For the 13th time in league history, PBR Canada will buck into Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and SakTel Centre. For two nights only, the Saskatchewan city will host the elite Cup Series’ PBR Saskatoon Classic on Oct. 29-30, 2021.

In order to welcome fans at full capacity, the event will adopt the Saskatchewan Public Health Order that went into effect on October 1.  

To ensure compliance with the recently announced public health measures, event-goers aged 12 and older will be required to:

  • Provide proof of full vaccination, or
  • A negative test result within 72 hours that has been completed by a certified clinic, displays the name as matched by a government-issued photo I.D., as well as the date of collection and result of the test.

To qualify as fully vaccinated, fans must be able to verify that they have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by Health Canada, and both were administered at least 14 days prior to the event. Vaccinated guests age 18 and older will also be required to present government-issues phtoo I.D. matching the name on the vaccination record.

Guests aged 12-17 will be required to show their vaccine record, but not photo I.D.

For those fans who are not vaccinated, the earliest administered COVID-19 test that will be accepted is Tuesday, Oct. 26 at 7:00 p.m. CST to attend the Friday event, and Wednesday, Oct. 27 at 7:00 p.m. CST to attend the Saturday event. 

No-appointment-necessary COVID-19 testing will be available on-site on event days for only $30.

Given the increased screening prior to venue entry, fans are encouraged to arrive early to SaskTel Centre, on Oct. 29-30. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. CST.

Mask use will remain mandatory inside the venue for fans, except when eating or drinking.

As the PBR Canada Cup Series event approaches, here are a few other frequently asked questions to know before you go!


Q: If I am not vaccinated, where can I obtain an acceptable COVID-19 test?

A: If you are not vaccinated, proof of a negative test result within the past 72 hours must be shown to gain entry to the event.

Rapid COVID-19 testing conducted by Prairie Industrial Health Services Company will be available onsite at the SaskTel Centre on both Friday, October 29 and Saturday, October 30 from 4:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. CST. Tests will be available for $30 per person, and results will be returned in approximately 15 minutes. On-site testing will be available in the SaskTel Centre’s O16 Lounge. To access the testing, enter the venue via the door directly to the right of the Rock 102 Lobby and follow the signage.

Any test performed on-site Friday that yields a negative result, will be valid for 72 hours in accordance with provincial requirements.

Acceptable tests may also be obtained from your preferred provider prior to the event.

If you are unable to provide the above-mentioned proof of vaccination or negative test, you may wish to transfer your ticket to someone that can meet the vaccination requirement. Please click here for further information from Ticketmaster on how to transfer tickets.

Q: What is acceptable proof of vaccination?

A: Proof of vaccination includes a valid paper or digital vaccine record that shows name, vaccine type and date of administration. Those event-goers age 18 and over will also be required to show a valid photo identification that matches the vaccine record. Acceptable proof of vaccination includes a COVID-19 vaccination record printed or screenshotted from mySaskHealth, a QR code received from mySaskHealth, or a wallet card received at the time of immunization.

For the upcoming PBR event in Saskatoon, all fans must be fully immunized. This includes receiving two doses of an accepted vaccine more than 14 days prior to the event.
