Safety is among our highest priorities at Rogers Cup presented by National Bank, and we take every reasonable step to ensure the safety of everyone who enters the IGA Stadium site. Again this year, we will be implementing several important security measures, in accordance with municipal, provincial and federal laws and regulations.

  • We encourage you to arrive at least 60 to 90 minutes prior to the start of play to avoid delays and facilitate stadium entry. Please note that, as of session 3, the gates will open at 11 a.m., 90 minutes prior to the start of play.
  • All ticketholders are subject to security measures (metal detection and bag inspection) before entering IGA Stadium.
  • There is a limit of one bag per ticketholder.
  • All bags are subject to inspection and must meet the following conditions:
  • Maximum size of 30 cm x 45 cm x 22 cm
  • Maximum volume of 15 l
  • Please bring as few items as possible.
  • There is no bag storage on the grounds. The bag storage facility is located outside the Gary-Carter entrance.
  • Speed lines for ticket holders with no bags are open at all gates.

Here are a few tips for faster stadium entry:

  • Be cooperative with staff members and volunteers and follow their instructions.
