REMINDER : New Way to Access the Olympic Stadium for the Impact Game on Saturday, March 17

Publié le 13 March 2018

In 2017, Montréal’s Olympic Park implemented a new entry process at the Olympic Stadium, by moving the search points outside for bige vent. This will be the case for the Impact game on Saturday, March 17, 2018, as well as for all upcoming spectator events. People arriving via the Pie-IX metro station will need to make their way outside and across the Esplanade to enter the Stadium. Members of the public will be directed by a team of logistics personnel deployed all over the Olympic Park site to help guide them toward the entry points.

This new approach is consistent with the entry process used by large stadiums across North America as well as with the policies adopted by professional sports leagues, whereby all access controls are located outside the stadium. This will help reduce the waiting time and allow the crowd to move quickly, thanks to the 48 search lanes spread over three control points on the Esplanade and in front of Jackie Robinson Place at 4545 Avenue Pierre De Coubertin.

How to enter the Stadium for the March 17 game

For transit users: Two metro stations serve the Olympic Stadium (Pie-IX and Viau). As soon as you arrive at the Pie-IX metro station, you will be directed outside, where greeters will guide you to the Esplanade, which is accessible to pedestrians by means of two entry points: via ramps facing Desjardins, and Bennett streets. Two search points will be set up on the Esplanade and an additional one at 4545 Avenue Pierre De Coubertin.

For motorists: All the parking lots at the Olympic Park will be operational. Motorists are invited to use the P1 and P2 parking lots on Avenue Pierre De Coubertin, the P3 parking lot on Boulevard Pie IX and the P4 parking lot on Sherbrooke Street. Searches will be conducted prior to entering the Rotunda.

See the map below for details regarding access to the Olympic Stadium.

Please note that the Olympic Park does not offer a baggage check service and entry into the stadium is final. Re-entry is not possible once the ticketholder has been admitted, as per the security protocols of North America’s large stadiums.

Also of note, the Olympic Park boasts expertise unparalleled anywhere in the country in controlling large crowds, having welcomed more than 70 million visitors to the Stadium since 1976.
