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.
