The Montreal Canadiens organization says it has asked the provincial government to allow thousands of more fans into the Bell Centre for the upcoming Stanley Cup final games.

France Margaret Bélanger, executive vice president for the organization, said Tuesday that it requested up to 10,500 spectators instead of the 3,500 people that are currently permitted under the province’s current COVID-19 public health regulations.

The Bell Centre is able to accommodate a larger audience, Bélanger said, adding fans have to wear their masks.

“We are on standby for a response from the government,” she said.
