Coronavirus guidance for the professional football and rugby stadium sector

Support provided by Scottish Government

What does this involve?

The Scottish Government has published guidance to help football and rugby stadium operators – including national associations (NAs) and professional clubs – take steps to reduce the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission for all within their stadia so they can open and operate as safely as possible within the current restrictions.

Topics covered include:

  • how the guidance fits within the current situation in Scotland
  • risk assessments
  • hand and respiratory hygiene
  • environmental cleaning – pre-opening, routine and deep-cleaning
  • ventilation
  • face coverings
  • changing facilities
  • deliveries, distribution and visitors
  • communication with spectators and other attendees
  • staff and player engagement
  • workforce planning and support, including homeworking and shielding
  • Test and Protect and outbreak management
