On Tuesday, another preparatory match was to be played on the ice of Vrchlabí, but the hockey players of Ústí nad Labem will not head to the Krkonoše Mountains. The A-team suspected coronavirus infection.
“HC Slovan Ústí nad Labem is canceling all sports training this week, including friendly matches in Vrchlabí and Kolín, due to suspicion of COVID-19. All players, including the implementation team, will be tested in the morning tomorrow, “says in a press release on the club’s website.
“All players, including the implementation team, will be tested in the morning tomorrow.”
For Ústí, it was supposed to be the last two friendly duels before the start of the basic part of the Chance League. The North Bohemians have so far played five matches in preparation with a balance of two wins and three defeats. But others probably won’t add anymore.
“We suspect that three of our players are showing signs of infection, so we prevented the duel in Vrchlabí for preventive reasons. Tomorrow the whole team will undergo tests and we will see what will happen next, “said Miroslav Mach, sports manager and head coach for Deník.

On the other hand, Vrchlabí players will not lose the preparatory match, as the club hastily agreed with Prague’s Slavia. So far, the stadium has played six matches in preparation and rejoiced in the victory four times.
The coronavirus pandemic is still significantly interfering with the events in Czech hockey, and the semifinal series of the Generali Czech Cup will not start in due time. Three cases of infection have been confirmed in Liberec, the hockey players of Pilsen will not enter the initial match against Třinec for preventive reasons.
In addition, the Knights of Kladno canceled their preparatory matches.
