The Six Invitational 2021 will gather 20 teams coming from the 4 main regions of the Rainbow Six Esports circuit, competing in a LAN environment, in France. The health and well-being of our pro players, staff, partners and fans is our top priority, this is why there will be no live audience on site and the event and all its participants will follow strict sanitary safety measures.
For the past few months, we have been tirelessly working with our partner Live Nation, the health and safety agency ACEPS, the medical assistance agency ISMA and the French Government, in order to develop a controlled, safe and competitive offline environment in line with the guidelines of the health organizations and local authorities. Below are the different actions that will be taken to ensure everyone's safety. We remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver gold-standard safety measures.
Health and safety measures may be updated up until the event, based on the evolution of the local authorities guidelines.
Before the event:
A minimum of 7 days of self-isolation highly recommended for all players before departure.
Negative PCR test to provide in order to be allowed by authorities to fly into France -- 72 hours prior to arrival.
During the event:
A maximum of 6 people per team authorized to come to the offline event.
Upon arrival, self-isolation at the hotel for all players based on local authorities guidelines.
All players have individual hotel rooms.
Strict separation between teams. Players from one team will not mix with other teams during the event.
Regular PCR and rapid tests for all players during the event.
PCR test before the departure flight.
Strict departure rule: in order to limit as much as possible the number of people in the venue, all eliminated teams will exit the event upon their elimination and will leave France within the following 48 hours.
Masks: players will wear masks at all times, except when playing on stage and during interviews.
Restrictions are applied to limit the number of people on site at any given moment.
All equipment within the venue will be rigorously sanitized daily at the beginning and end of each day.
Additionally, the competition areas will be sanitized before and after each match.
Sanitation of interview equipment and area before and after each interview session.
Frequent sanitation of all high-touch surfaces.
Presence of a Covid Manager on site for the entire duration of the event.
A doctor will be present on site for the entire duration of the event.
Permanent presence of first-aid workers trained in COVID management - systematic temperature taking.
Protocols for all people working on-site
Two documents will be made available to each:
o General instructions reminding the national instructions and official recommendations.
o Specific instructions adapted to each site and to the competition schedule.
Face masks required at all times.
Set up of a sign-off sheet of "Acknowledgement of the General and Specific Instructions for any person who accesses the venue"
Specific scenarios and actions:
Participating teams will face competitive sanctions, up to the dismissal from the site and the disqualification entirely from the competition, should they fail to comply with the safety instructions at any moment during the event.
UPDATE: If a player tests positive during the event, the full team will be removed or disqualified from the competition. We’re convinced this additional reinforcement of our sanitary measures is essential to ensure the safety of the other teams and our staff. In that scenario, the disqualified team would be provided the necessary support to ensure they are repatriated in optimal safety conditions for them and the general public.
