Tickets start at $25.
The BlackJacks will be playing Edmonton on July 17; Saskatchewan on July 26; and Guelph on August 4.
Seating configuration has been design by OSEG in consultation with health authorities and approved by the CEBL chief medical officer, to ensure comfort and safety for everyone in the arena.
The BlackJacks will play its last game without fans on Saturday when the team plays host to the Fraser Valley Bandits.
