The Premier League is finally restarting.

However, they do have a few new rules in place.

Find out what they are:

Stadiums:

Stadiums will be divided into three separate zones on game days: red, amber and green.

  • Red Zone: Includes the pitch, technical area, tunnel and dressing rooms. All who enter must have a ‘clinical passport’ and only 110 people are permitted at any one time.
  • Amber Zone: Includes all areas of the stadium aside from the Red Zone. Those who enter must complete a medical questionnaire and have their temperature checked.
  • Green Zone: Includes the area outside the stadium. Access is granted in accordance with the host club’s safety policy.

Journey to stadiums

  • Players and staff must complete relevant COVID-19 checks and report symptoms.
  • Travel is permitted via car, coach, plane or train – provided it is a sterile environment.
  • Social distancing must be applied in all transport modes and those who travel in their own cars, should do so alone.
  • Hotels should be used in essential circumstances only.

Arrival

  • A sterile route from vehicles to the dressing room will be provided at all grounds.
  • Dressing rooms for both teams and match officials must have enough space to allow for social distancing and additional rooms may be used if required.

Use of the Tunnel:

  • At certain stadiums, teams will enter the field through different tunnels.
  • When that cannot be facilitated, journeys to and from the field will be staggered.
  • Gathering in or around the tunnel is forbidden as are pre-match handshakes.

Stadium Hygiene:

  • Widespread disinfection and strict cleaning measures must be applied at all stadia.
  • Changing facilities, dugouts, match balls, goalposts, corner flags, and substitution boards will all be subject to those measures.
  • Hand-sanitizing dispensers must be freely available and signposted throughout all stadiums.
  • Those on the bench other than players and coaching staff must wear face coverings, although this can be waived in certain circumstances.
