These include staggered arrivals at the stadium, a limit of 300 people who will have access to each event and of course the maintenance of physical distance where possible. Therefore, no close protests with the referees. In case of positivity of a player, will apply rules already provided by the protocol for collective training: therefore two weeks of retreat for the whole team.

The you get to the stadium they must be staggered: first the referees (1: 45h before the start of the game), then the visiting team (1: 40h before), finally the home team (1: 30h before).
All ‘entry into the field there will be no children to accompany the players, there will be no mascots, there will be no team photos or handshake ceremonies.

Referees and players will always have to move at different times, on entering the field, at the interval, at the end of the game. In any case, the safety distance of 1.5 meters must be maintained between the two. So no close protests and small groups around the match officials then.
