"As we continue to reach record numbers at McGregor Square, we would like to emphasize our efforts to maintain a safe and fun environment for everyone to cheer on the Avs", a statement via the McGregor Square Instagram page reads.

The age restriction change was made after watch party officials said they've witnessed far too many underage incidences that have ultimately put people's safety at risk -

“Our number one thing is always safety and security, and things were just getting — a lot of incidents with some underage people,” Patrick Walsh, CEO of McGregor Square, said - according to KDVR. 

“So we made the call for the enjoyment of everybody, for the safety and security of everybody, we made it 21 and up,” Walsh said.
