Win NHL and CFL prizes for getting vaccinated

A new Open for Summer Lottery draw will reward Albertans who have received their first COVID-19 vaccine with prize packages from the Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Elks and Calgary Stampeders.

More than 1.6 million Albertans have already entered the Open for Summer Lottery, which currently includes three draws for $1 million, travel prizes from Air Canada and WestJet, and prizes from the Calgary Stampede.

The new draw will give every Albertan with their first dose who registers for the Open for Summer Lottery by July 22 the chance to win season tickets for football, VIP hockey packages and rounds of golf in Kananaskis. Winners will be announced on July 29.

To date, more than 71.7 per cent of eligible Albertans have stepped up for their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, including 38.6 per cent who are now fully vaccinated with two doses.

“We’ve all missed the thrill of watching our favourite teams play to the roar of a cheering crowd,” said Premier Jason Kenney. “Thanks to Albertans’ hard work at getting vaccinated, we can get back to many of our favourite pastimes and sports as we safely open for summer. These prizes will help welcome fans back to their seats and are yet another incentive to get vaccinated as soon as you can.”
