1. Only accredited players and staff are allowed to be present in the playing hall.
2. The accreditation badges will be given only to those persons who have their negative PCR-tests done no later than 72 hours before arrival at the tournament.
3. Coaches and accompanying persons are not allowed to be present in the playing hall.
4. The opening ceremony is combined with a technical meeting. It will take place in the playing hall at 6 PM on the 11th of July. Only players and the official press are allowed to be present at the ceremony.

Your safety is our priority. We hope to get your understanding.
