Goldeyes leaving Jackson

JACKSON, Tenn. — The Winnipeg Goldeyes have been granted permission to return to Shaw Park on August 3 for their home opener, their first game in their home park since September 2019, according to a news release.

“The Winnipeg Goldeyes are ecstatic to finally return to home,” said Goldeyes’ owner Sam Katz.  “We are grateful to the government and health authorities for allowing us a path to host games at Shaw Park.  We are especially excited for our loyal fans that will finally be able to attend a Goldeyes game for the first time in almost two years.”

In the news release, Katz thanked the Jackson Generals, who hosted the team for the start of their season.

“We want to express our sincerest gratitude to the Jackson Generals’ staff and the citizens of Jackson, Tennessee for their incredible hospitality and support throughout this season,” Katz said in the release.

All players and coaches, as well as players and coaches from visiting teams will be fully vaccinated upon their return to Canada, and hub protocols will be in place for both teams, the release says.

The Goldeyes have received permission to operate Shaw Park at full capacity, and all fans will be required to be fully vaccinated, the release says. Fans under the age of 12 must be with a vaccinated adult and are required to wear a mask, according to the release.

Two adjustments were made to the Jackson schedule: the August 23 game against Kane County will now be on August 20, with August 23 as an off day; the team’s double header on Saturday, Sept. 4 is now a single game on Sept. 3.

The Goldeyes will contact season ticketholders and Mini Pack holders with options for the remainder of the season.

Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday, July 27 at 9 a.m.
