UPDATE | Elks training camp returns outdoors

In-person media availability to follow field level

EDMONTON – Following three days of indoor activities due to poor air quality caused by smoke, the Edmonton Elks are heading back to The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium.

Tuesday's outdoor practice is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. to 12:05 p.m.

An in-person media availability will be staged immediately following the practice. Full details are below, but media are reminded they must provide proof they're fully vaccinated prior to entering field level.


IN-PERSON AVAILABILITES

All in-person media availabilities will be outdoors at field level. Interviews will occur one at a time at a podium, with media able to plug into a soundboard for audio.

As per the CFL's 2021 media policy, media planning to attend in-person availabilities must:

  • Be socially distant from each other as well as coach/player
    • Markers will clearly indicate where media can stand during interviews
  • Masks are mandatory
  • Media must be fully vaccinated
    • Proof of vaccination will be reviewed at field level prior to the media member participating in their first in-person availability
  • Media will access the interview area by using the stairs through SECTION RR.

In the event that an availability can't be staged outside, the availability will shift to Zoom.


PARKING/ENTRANCE

Media can park in LOT A (NW corner of stadium) and must enter The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium using GATE 7.

Security will grant access 15 minutes prior to the scheduled practice start time.
