WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Whiteout will not return to Bell MTS Place this year.

The Winnipeg Jets announced Thursday morning that, even if the NHL season resumes, it will be unlikely games will take place at Bell MTS Place.

True North Sports and Entertainment, the owner of the Jets, said fans will have two options to use the credit they have from already purchased tickets.

Ticket holders can keep credit on their account for the 2020-21 season.

ā€œIn appreciation for leaving your credit on account from March 12, 2020 until the start of the 2020-21 season, your 2020-21 Winnipeg Jets Invoice will be discounted by an amount equal to 3 per cent of your credit balance for the period from March 12, 2020 until the first home pre- or regular-season game at Bell MTS Place,ā€ a statement from True North reads.

Ticket invoices for the next season will not be issued until there is direction from the province about public assembly and when the timing of the upcoming season resumes.
