B. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
- For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, “Member” means the individual or entity entered on the records of AHLP as being the account holder in respect of the purchase of a package of tickets to Team home games (the “Tickets”) played at the stadium currently known as BMO Field (the “Stadium”).
- The Member acknowledges and agrees that, subject to the termination rights specified herein, this Membership is provided for a one-Season term and will expire on November 30th following the Canadian Football League (the “CFL”) Season for which the Tickets have been purchased. The purchase of Ticket package(s) for any Season does not entitle the Member to renew any Ticket package(s) for any subsequent Season. Member acknowledges that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms and Conditions, the opportunity to renew the Membership is a privilege granted by AHLP which may be withdrawn by AHLP at any time and that neither party has the right or obligation to renew a Membership.
- These Terms and Conditions supplement the terms and conditions printed on the reverse side of each Ticket (the “Ticket Back Terms”) which also apply to the Member and each individual using any of the Member’s Tickets from time to time. The current version of the Ticket Back Terms is attached as Schedule A hereto. If any of these Terms and Conditions conflict with the Ticket Back Terms, these Terms and Conditions shall prevail to the extent of the conflict.
- Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Member acknowledges that each Ticket is a limited, revocable license to attend the game described on the Ticket face. As a revocable license, each Ticket may be revoked at any time (including before or after AHLP delivers the Ticket) for any reason (including, without limitation, Pre-emption (as defined below)) by AHLP, and, upon such revocation, AHLP shall refund the holder of the Tickets in the amount of the stated face value of the unused Tickets, less the portion of any discount allocable to such Tickets as a result of the Tickets having been purchased as part of a Member ticket package. AHLP shall have no liability in connection with the revocation of a Ticket other than the aforementioned refund. AHLP’s right to revoke described in this Section is in addition to any other right of AHLP to terminate set forth in these Terms and Conditions or otherwise.
- The Member acknowledges and agrees that the Tickets being purchased hereunder are solely for regular season and, if applicable, one playoff game (date to be determined) Team games played at the Stadium, and for the avoidance of doubt, shall not include tickets, to any other event or game, including, but not limited to, any preseason game, neutral site game, or other CFL event (each a “League Special Event”) held in the Team’s market or hosted by the CFL at an Stadium or otherwise in which the Team participates. Notwithstanding the foregoing, AHLP will make reasonable efforts to secure for the Member an opportunity to purchase an equivalent number of tickets for any Team home game that is relocated to an alternate venue for the purposes of playing a League Special Event.
- The Member acknowledges and agrees that the Team and/or CFL may cancel, postpone, reschedule or relocate games included in the Member’s Ticket package for any reason, as determined in its/their sole discretion, as well as to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any aspect of the rules, operations and presentations of CFL games and events (“Pre-emption”).
- Any Team game or event, for which Tickets have been sold to the Member, that is not played or presented in an Stadium for any reason, including, but not limited to, Pre-emption, shall in no way be deemed, argued or construed to be a breach by AHLP of any terms, conditions, agreement or any other duties or obligations in connection with the sale and use of these Tickets. In such event, the Member shall have their Membership account credited with an amount representing the amount of the stated face value of the Tickets for such game(s), less the portion of any discount allocable to such Tickets as a result of the Tickets having been purchased as part of a Member Ticket package. Unless other arrangements are agreed between AHLP and the Member, the credited funds shall, where applicable, be held by AHLP and applied, at the direction of the Member, to the Member’s purchase of playoff Tickets (if applicable) in the season in which the cancelled game(s) occurred and/or to the Member’s renewal of a regular season Ticket package in the subsequently played Season. If the Member elects not to purchase playoff Tickets and does not renew its Ticket package for the subsequent Season, the amount of the credit will be refunded following the Ticket renewal deadline or applied to the purchase of other AHLP ticket products, if requested. No interest or rebate will accrue on the amount of the credit at any time, unless AHLP determines otherwise in its sole discretion. The Member hereby waives and releases any and all claims it may have against AHLP and/or the CFL with respect to such game(s) not played at a Stadium.
- AHLP reserves the right to relocate the seats in the Member’s Ticket package occasionally during the regular season and at any time during the playoffs due to broadcast, CFL and/or Stadium security requirements. If such a relocation is required, AHLP will make every effort to relocate the Member (or the individual using any of the Member’s Tickets) to seats in a substantially similar or better location within the Stadium.
- The Member’s Ticket rights and such other privileges as may be extended by AHLP from time to time (the “Membership Privileges”) remain subject at all times to the compliance of the Member: (i) with these Terms and Conditions; (ii) with Stadium policies (including but not limited to security polices and the Stadium Code of Conduct (attached hereto as Schedule B hereto)); (iii) with applicable laws; and (iv) the Ticket Terms. AHLP reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate the Membership (including Member’s Ticket rights and Membership Privileges), to temporarily suspend the Member’s Ticket rights or Membership Privileges, to withdraw or restrict access to Membership Privileges, to refuse to sell additional Ticket package(s) to the Member, or to not offer to renew the Membership, if: (a) AHLP (acting reasonably) determines that there has been a breach of these Terms and Conditions on the part of the Member or a breach of the Ticket Terms on the part of the Member or any individual using any of the Member’s Tickets; (b) Member becomes insolvent, bankrupt or is otherwise unable to pay its debts when due; (c) a receiver, trustee or officer of similar authority is appointed for all or party of Member’s affairs in relation to the Member’s insolvency; or (d) Member is wound up. If AHLP terminates the Membership, AHLP will be entitled (unless AHLP, in its sole discretion, notifies the Member otherwise) to retain all payments made by the Member (or any individual or entity who has paid for Tickets on behalf of the Member) to the date of such termination. Furthermore, if there is a balance outstanding in respect of the Member’s membership account at the time of such termination, then the Member shall pay AHLP (upon AHLP’s demand) the amount of such balance or such portion thereof as AHLP is unable to recover using commercially reasonable efforts to re-sell the Tickets for the remainder of the Season following such termination.
- Member shall be responsible for ensuring that any person using its Membership tickets (regardless of whether that person is the initial transferee or a subsequent transferee, each a “Ticket User”) complies with all Terms and Conditions and the Member will be responsible for all acts and omissions of each Ticket User as if such act or omission was that of the Member.

If Amendments are to take effect upon commencement of a subsequent Season, Members will be notified of any such Amendments prior to the renewal date for the Membership. If Amendments are to take effect during the current Season and, in the discretion of AHLP, are reasonably necessary to address safety, security or emergency situations, Members will be informed of any such Amendments upon the Amendments taking effect. In such case, the Member will not be entitled to any refund of any payments made prior to the Amendments if the Member subsequently chooses to cancel the Membership as a result of the Amendments. If Amendments are to take effect during the current Season and materially reduce or restrict any benefits to Members or impose any additional material obligations, as determined by AHLP, and are not implemented by AHLP to address safety, security or emergency situations, Members will be informed of any such Amendments thirty (30) days prior to the Amendments taking effect (the “30 Day Notice Period”). In this instance, Members will be entitled to cancel their Memberships by providing written notice to AHLP during the 30 Day Notice Period, in which case such a Member will be entitled to reasonable compensation corresponding to the proportionate loss of any Membership benefits for the remainder of the Season, as determined in AHLP’s sole discretion.
