With the health and well-being of our pro players, staff, partners, and fans as our top priority, the event will be held under strict sanitary measures for all participants and without an on-site audience. We have been working with our partner FACEIT to develop a controlled, safe, and competitive offline environment in line with health organizations and local authorities’ guidelines. Below are the different actions that will be taken to ensure everyone’s safety.
Please note health and safety measures may be updated up until the event, based on the evolution of the situation and local authorities' guidelines.
Before the event:
- For all participants, regardless of vaccination status, a negative PCR test result taken within four days of the event is required to compete.
During the event:
- All participants will be tested by rapid antigen on-site upon arrival at the venue on both days of the competition.
- All teams are asked to avoid contact with other teams' practice areas and minimize mingling in common areas of the venue.
- All players and staff are required to wear masks at all times, except when playing on stage and during interviews.
- All equipment within the venue will be rigorously sanitized daily, and in-between matches.
- If a player tests positive for COVID-19, the designated substitute can replace the player for the competition.
- Private transportation will be provided for these teams to and from the venue.
Participating teams will face competitive sanctions, up to dismissal from the site and disqualification entirely from the competition, should they fail to comply with the safety instructions at any moment during the event.
These protocols are in-line with the protocols that have been in place all year at the arena for NAL league play.
