Greece to open sports arenas to vaccinated spectators

Spectators may return to sports facilities to watch games as long as adults are vaccinated, the ratio of unvaccinated youth does not exceed 5%, and all wear masks without exception, Greece’s Sports Ministry said on Thursday.

Adult spectators will be obliged to show a vaccination certificate when purchasing an electronic ticket, while younger people will be obliged to show a negative molecular PCR or Rapid Test.

At facilities without an electronic ticketing system, proof will be required at the door.

Open-air facilities may seat up to 80% of full capacity (or a maximum 25,000 people), while closed facilities will seat a maximum of 60% capacity (or a maximum 3,000 people).

The date these regulations will go into effect will be revealed expected in a few days.

In addition, it is recommended that sports organizations and mass media use vaccinated professionals on site, while the unvaccinated will have to show a negative PCR or rapid test before the start of a game.

A health protocol for the Half-Marathon race of Athens (September 12) has been approved, with the provision that only fully vaccinated athletes are allowed to register.
