English Premier League COVID-19 Guidelines you should know!

The Premier League will finally resume on Wednesday 17 June after a three-month break with two matches on the cards.

In that regard, the Premier League management has put proper measures in place to ensure that safety is observed during the period.

But what do those measures entail?

Teams’ journey to the stadium

Players and staff must complete relevant COVID-19 checks and report symptoms.
Travel is permitted via car, coach, plane or train – provided it is a sterile environment.
Social distancing must be applied in all transport modes and those who travel in their own cars should do so alone.
Hotels should be used in essential circumstances only.

Arrival at the stadium

A sterile route from vehicles to the dressing room will be provided at all grounds.
Dressing rooms for both teams and match officials must have enough space to allow for social distancing and additional rooms may be used if required.

Use of the tunnel

At certain stadiums, teams will enter the field through different tunnels.
When that cannot be facilitated, journeys to and from the field will be staggered.
Gathering in or around the tunnel is forbidden as are pre-match handshakes.

Stadium Safety

Red Zone: Includes the pitch, technical area, tunnel and dressing rooms. All who enter must have a ‘clinical passport’ and only 110 people are permitted at any one time.

Amber Zone: Includes all areas of the stadium aside from the Red Zone. Those who enter must complete a medical questionnaire and have their temperature checked.

Green Zone: Includes the area outside the stadium. Access is granted in accordance with the host club’s safety policy.

Stadium hygiene

Widespread disinfection and strict cleaning measures must be applied at all stadia.
Changing facilities, dugouts, match balls, goalposts, corner flags and substitution boards will all be subject to those measures.
Hand-sanitizing dispensers must be freely available and signposted throughout all stadiums.
Those on the bench other than players and coaching staff must wear face coverings, although this can be waived in certain circumstances.
