Important message regarding playoff games in Montreal

Some tips to help avoid missing any playoff action at the Bell Centre

by Montreal Canadiens @canadiensMTL / canadiens.com

With playoff home games coming up, we invite all fans planning to attend Canadiens games at the Bell Centre to inform themselves of the following, to ensure easier access to the stadium and to avoid missing any action on the ice.

  1. All home games start at 7:00 p.m. (not the usual 7:30 p.m. on weekdays).
  2. Ticket holders are encouraged to arrive at the Bell Centre no later than 6:30 p.m. to ensure sufficient time to access the arena.
  3. Most playoff tickets have been issued in a mobile format. If this is what you have, please ensure you have downloaded the Canadiens' official mobile app and can view your tickets on your app *in advance* of arriving at the Bell Centre.
  4. Fans will need to pass through security to access the Bell Centre. Backpacks, laptop cases and other oversized bags are prohibited and should not be brought to the building.
  5. The Canadiens have planned an extensive pregame show. In order not to miss it we encourage ticket holders to be in their seats by 6:50 p.m.
