The Toronto Blue Jays announced Saturday that the team will not be playing in Canada this year. 

Rogers Centre has been used to host the team's training camp in recent weeks, but as per this latest report will not be hosting any regular-season games as decided by the federal government. 

Details on where the team will be playing have yet to be finalized, according to the statement, but will be shared in the near future. 

“From the onset of discussions with league and government officials, the safety of the broader community - our fans - and the team remained the priority of everyone involved, and with that, the club completely respects the federal government’s decision,” said Mark Shapiro, Toronto Blue Jays’ president and CEO.

“Though our team will not be playing home games at Rogers Centre this summer, our players will take the field for the 2020 season with the same pride and passion representative of our entire nation. 

We cannot wait until the day comes that we can play in front of our fans again on Canadian soil.”
