The organizing committee of the MARS Bromont CCI has announced the first set of requirements which will allow United States-based athletes and their support team members to enter Canada for the duration of competition scheduled for June 2-6, 2021. Top riders have already started announcing their intentions to attend this event near the village of Bromont at the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park, which played host to the equestrian events of the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games.
Travellers from the United States will be required to present proof of completed vaccinations for all people travelling to the event and a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arriving at the border. Additional requirements will be announced as released by the local and federal government. Information regarding further details including the COVID-19 plan will be posted on the website here.
Competitors and support staff must book lodging accommodations directly with Domaine Château Bromont. The hotel has confirmed plans with the organizers to provide both local restaurant and grocery store deliveries directly to the athletes’ accommodations. A special rate for all competitors at the hotel will be available. Additionally, all entries to the MARS Bromont CCI will be 100% refundable.
