Rules and recommendations

Amateur sports

At the moment, all amateur athletes who are organized in sports associations can play sports together. However, the condition of a maximum of 30 people on the sports field must be met.

Furthermore, athletes must undergo a PCR test (max. 7 days before) or a POC antigen test (max. 72 hours before), undergo a test at work or school (max. 72 hours before), have a certificate of illness or have a certificate issued by the Ministry of Health on the vaccination. In the case of testing children, the legal representative may prove by a solemn declaration that the child has been tested with a negative test result at school. Alternatively, on-site self-testing can be used. Children under 6 years of age do not have to meet the testing condition.

The organizer of the amateur sports training must keep the contact details of the participant (ideally the telephone number) for 30 days (in the event of an infection when the participants would have to be traced).

Professional sports

Professional athletes are exempted from the ban. A professional athlete is a person who performs sport as his or her primary job or as a business and other similar activity. 

Professional athletes are allowed to have their training to prepare for future events at both indoor and outdoor sports grounds in unlimited numbers of people. However, they are also required to follow hygienic measures - keeping their distance and regularly washing their hands. They do not have to wear a face mask or respirator during the sport, but after the end of the training, it is necessary to put it on again under regulations. 

Professional athletes must also be tested regularly according to prescribed rules.
