In response to the more favorable development of epidemic numbers in the country, the Ministry of Health decided to make adjustments to the conditions for organizing all sports events, including first and second league matches. Based on these rules, clubs can proceed in their home games from two August onwards in two ways.
In the event that attendance at the match is limited to a maximum of 7,000 spectators (for stadiums with a capacity of less than 7,000 or for larger stadiums at the discretion of the club), all visitors must prove themselves with one of the following proofs of infectivity:
• a negative PCR test completed no more than 7 days before the match
• a negative antigen test passed no more than 72 hours before the match
• a vaccination certificate which has been completed at least 14 days before the match (second dose or single dose vaccine) before the match
• confirmation of covid-19 disease during the past 180 days before the match

“The approach of clubs, especially from the second highest competition, which have smaller stadiums, will not have to change in any way against the rules from the beginning of this season. There, all spectators tested or vaccinated or those with a lost covid can fully attend the matches there. In most first-league clubs with larger stadiums, the emphasis will be on vaccinated fans, who can fill league stadiums in excess of three thousand up to full capacity, “explains Dušan Svoboda, Chairman of the LFA League Committee.
In the event that the club releases more than 7,000 spectators, the opportunity to prove a negative test result will apply to only three thousand of the total number of visitors and all other spectators up to the full capacity of the stadium must prove either by proof of illness in last 180 days, or by a certificate of completed vaccination at least 14 days ago.

The LFA League Committee approved a new version of the Protocol of Measures, in which several related measures were modified in addition to stadium capacities. The new regulation for LFA member clubs will apply from Sunday, August 1, in accordance with the Extraordinary Measure of the Ministry of Health.
“Of course, this is not a happy decision, because in Saturday’s matches there will be different rules than on Sunday. However, within the League Committee, we decided to allow fans to arrive in higher numbers for Sunday’s matches, and the new protocol will be valid from Sunday, “says Svoboda.
