The Indian Premier League (IPL), which was postponed due to coronavirus, is returning to the field from today. This is the second episode starting in the United Arab Emirates. As a precaution, some strict restrictions have been added to this year's IPL.
Spectators were barred from entering the field for two long years after the onset of the coronavirus epidemic. But this time the ban is no longer in the UAE.
The 13th edition of the IPL, which started last April, was postponed due to corona. The remaining 31 matches will be played in 27 days in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. There are three different rules for three venues.
Entering the Dubai International Cricket Stadium requires a mandatory report of the last 48 hours of the Corona Test. In addition, two COVID ticker doses must be accompanied by proof of dosing. However, cricket fans under the age of 12 and below are not required to have a vaccination certificate.
You have to enter Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Stadium with a mandatory corona report. However, there is no need to bring a vaccination certificate for those below 18 years of age.
On the other hand, the rules at Sharjah Stadium are stricter. No spectators below the age of 18 will be allowed to enter the field. Everyone must have a corona report and a ticker certificate.
At each venue, visitors are asked to adhere strictly to the social distance. In addition, you must always wear a mask.
