UEFA’s anti-coronavirus protocol to keep European competitions safe


Champions League Tests and controls at each stadium

UEFA's anti-coronavirus protocol to keep European competitions safeEFE

Each team set to participate in the Champions League and Europa League will be assigned a specific medical officer who will be responsible for all the tests carried out on that specific group, with UEFA taking serious measures to keep their competitions safe.

Both Portugal and Germany will be entrusted with the task of hosting the tournaments, but their respective governments will need to come up with protocols to protect players.

UEFA continue to collect information and there will be health controls in place for 48 hours before a team makes a trip.

Tests will take place for each team before they travel to the city in which they are scheduled to play, and these tests will be repeated before the matches kick-off.

As soon as the travelling party belonging to a club touches down in either Portugal or Germany, they will not be allowed to return home until their participation in the tournament comes to an official end.

MARCA had access to the official protocol list and it was made clear that teams will not be able to arrive at the stadium at the same time, and will have to ensure there is a 10-minute gap between entry.

UEFA has divided the designated stadiums into four zones.

Zone 1 will include the dressing rooms, benches, the pitch and other technical areas. A limit of 120 people, of which 45 will come from each team, will be enforced in this zone.

Zone 2 will be the television technicians and camera operators and there will be a limit of 100 people.

Zone 3 will be for photographers and journalists.

Zone 4 is the surrounding areas outside of the stadium.

UEFA have insisted that social distancing measures will be in place and the wearing of facemasks will be mandatory.

Anti-doping controls will still occur, although it’s unclear how they will be micromanaged within the zone system.

Press conferences will be done via telephone connection and flash television interviews will be kept to a minimum, there will also be no mixed zone activities and no cameras in the dressing rooms.
