Fans will be able to get a look at the Kamloops Blazers on Friday, when the Prince George Cougars come to town for an exhibition game at Sandman Centre, a 7 p.m. start.
Interior Health restrictions were eased on Monday to allow for 50 per cent capacity inside the arena. The Blazers confirmed on Tuesday fans will be allowed into the arena this Friday.
All spectators will be required to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination prior to entry, as is policy for WHL games in Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George, Vancouver and Victoria, and must wear masks.
Tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. on Wednesday online at blazerhockey.com and in the Sandman Centre box office.
A WHL game was last played in Sandman Centre on March 6, 2020, when Kamloops doubled Lethbridge 6-3.
No spectators were allowed into WHL buildings during the truncated 2020-2021 season.
Regular season action is slated to begin on Oct. 2, when the Blazers square off against the Cougars in Prince George.
