After Friday’s phone call with the Chief Hygienist of the Slovak Republic, Ján Mikas, the Managing Authority of the Supreme Slovak Football Competition takes a proactive approach to the measures concerning the placement of spectators in the stands.
The new guideline, which is to apply in the stadiums from Monday, July 6, the Union of League Clubs (ÚLK) has decided to apply in practice already in the meetings of the weekend 4th round of the superstructure of the Fortuna League.
“We are happy that fans can enjoy football again. In any case, however, we do not want to underestimate prevention, we want to remain responsible and respect the rules. That is why we have created a manual with all the important information, an instructional video and we are actively trying to communicate all the information to clubs or fans, “said Michal Mertinyák, Executive Director of ÚLK.
From 6 July, a new guideline from the Public Health Office (ÚVZ) should apply, which states that checkerboard seating should be replaced by another type of seating. At the request of the Chief Hygienist of the Slovak Republic Ján Mikas, the Fortuna League clubs will try to introduce this rule for the next round during this weekend.
“We spoke with the representatives of the clubs that are in the position of organizers of the matches during this weekend and asked them to apply the new regulation. This means that every second row should be free in the stands now. If not, clubs should provide a chessboard for fans in the stands. Either way, we believe that people will be responsible and that they will comply with regulations in full. We want the stadiums to be full, but we also appeal to abide by the rules, “Mertinyák was quoted as official by the league’s official website.
