New limit of 500 fans for advanced outdoor sporting events

By Sports events

The government has advanced the new limit of 500 fans for outdoor sporting events to this Saturday. The easing was originally scheduled for Monday, July 5, but earlier Wednesday morning Sports Minister Jack Chambers announced on Twitter that weekend GAA matches could benefit from the new upper limit.

“Small but big change for sporting events. The increase in the number of spectators is applicable from this Saturday July 3 to facilitate the increase in attendance for this weekend’s matches. Further proposals for increased capacity and connections are being developed for July and August. “

This means that in venues with a capacity of 5,000 or more, 500 spectators will be allowed to attend – an increase of 300 from what has been put in place to date. Smaller capacity venues will see the number of authorized attendees double from 100 to 200.

The coming weekend is a very busy one for GAA Championship matches with football championships in Connacht, Leinster and Ulster and hurling championship semi-finals in Leinster and Munster. There are also games in the McDonagh, Ring, Rackard and Meagher Cups of hurling.

The move comes too early for Friday night’s All-Ireland minor semi-final between Limerick and Galway at Ennis, which will be subject to the old limit.

Counties were hoping the new crowd limit would be brought forward after Croke Park got the nod to allow 8,000 to attend Saturday’s Leinster semi-finals.

Other pilot events this weekend are the Connacht football semi-final between Roscommon and Galway at Dr Hyde Park, which will feature 1,049 people, and the Munster hurling semi-final between Limerick and Cork on Saturday evening, which will feature 2 400.

In Ulster where the 500 limit was already in effect, this means Saturday’s Monaghan-Fermanagh quarter-final will now have the same capacity as Antrim and Armagh on Sunday.

A student guide entering to obtain tickets to sporting events at UNC

By Sports events

While watching sports on TV is great, most fans will tell you that the experience is greatly enhanced by attending games in person, especially at Chapel Hill. Securing your ticket to a game is paramount to the overall sporting experience at UNC, and here’s how to do it.


There is a lot of hype surrounding the football team this year after last season’s run at the Orange Bowl, and students will want to be at Kenan Memorial Stadium to see it.

Student football tickets are available through a lottery process for most home games throughout the season. The lottery opens 10 days before each game and students have 48 hours to participate.

The timing of lottery entries does not affect the odds of getting a ticket – anyone who registers at any time during the 48 hour period has an equal chance of winning.

Students find out if they won by email five days before the game, and winners receive their tickets in another email three days later. Students who do not receive lottery tickets can join the queue on match day. All student tickets become void after kick-off, and those unused tickets go to the students in the queue.

All student ticket holders can enter the stadium 90 minutes before kick-off.

Men’s basketball

Then began the Hubert Davis era. When students enter the Dean E. Smith Center to watch the Tar Heels game, they can sense the historic significance of the basketball program.

Similar to football, a student ticket lottery system is in effect for home basketball games throughout the season, with the exception of exhibitions and certain non-conference games, which are open to students according to the first come, first served principle.

The winners receive their tickets by email five days before the match and the tickets are divided into three phases.

Students with Phase 1 tickets can enter the Smith Center an hour and a half before departure, Phase 2 an hour before, and Phase 3 half an hour before.

As with football, unused tickets become void at the time of the game and there is a queue for students who have not received lottery tickets.

Carolina fever

Carolina Fever is a rewards program in which students earn points for each “Fever” event they participate in. Students don’t need to register for the program – they just swipe their OneCards to the games.

The top 200 students in the points standings receive a ticket for each home football match. The top 150 receive Phase 1 tickets to every men’s basketball game at home – one for the game against Duke and two for every other game.

Students can check the Carolina fever website to see which events will earn them points for the season.

Other sports

Other UNC sporting events are free for students and simply require a OneCard to participate.

Live Sports App Startup Buzzer collects $ 20 million from investors including Michael Jordan, Naomi Osaka, Patrick Mahomes

By Sports app

Looking for a way to make sure you don’t miss out on the most exciting moments in sports in real time?

Startup Buzzer has an app for that – and it just made $ 20 million from an investor list that includes a host of sports and entertainment industry heavyweights.

Buzzer’s $ 20 million Series A funding was led by existing investor Sapphire Sport and new investor Canaan Partners. The company said “substantial new investments” came from individuals in sports, business and entertainment. The list of donors includes: LaMelo Ball, Devin Booker, J. Cole, Wayne Gretzky, DeAndre Hopkins, Sabrina Ionescu, Michael Jordan, Patrick Mahomes, Auston Matthews, Connor McDavid, Renee Montgomery, Naomi Osaka and Bobby Wagner. Early investors, including venture capital firm Lerer Hippeau, and SoFi CEO Anthony Noto (former Twitter CFO) also participated in the round.

The New York-based company was founded last year by Bo Han, who previously worked at Twitter for seven years, most recently leading live sports rights acquisitions. Note: Twitter’s app has the ability to alert users to live events they have chosen to follow.

According to Buzzer, its app provides “a seamless user and viewing experience” by aggregating live sports broadcast rights and allowing users to set up personalized alerts based on their preferences. Buzzer’s current league partners include NBA League Pass, PGA Tour, and NHL, and the company says it has other deals in the works.

“There is nothing more exciting than a close game or a buzzer – these are the times we live in as players,” said Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and Super Bowl LIV champion, in a press release provided by the company. “Buzzer ensures that fans never miss these real-time moments and helps us to strengthen our bond with them, especially with young, predominantly mobile sports fans. I believe Buzzer represents the future of live sports and I am delighted to join them on their journey.

Buzzer is currently in an early access phase, available for download on iOS in the Apple App Store and on Android in the Google Play Store. For now, users who download can create profiles by selecting the preferences of their favorite players, teams and leagues; they are then added to a waiting list before they have full access to the app, at which point they can consume live content. The platform will be officially launched later this year.

“We envision Buzzer to become the discovery and curation tool that brings Gen Z fans back to live sports with simple access to fleeting moments,” Han, founder and CEO of Buzzer, said in a statement. He touted his company’s “partner first approach”, which he says will give leagues and other sports rights holders new opportunities to reach new fans and generate new sources of revenue.

Other investors in Buzzer include athletes Pat Connaughton, Madison Hammond, Scotty James, Christian McCaffrey and Apolo Ohno; team owners David Blitzer (New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia 76ers), GSW Sports Ventures (a subsidiary of the Golden State Warriors), Steve Kaplan (DC United, Swansea City), Steve Koonin (Atlanta Hawks), Lerner Enterprises (Washington Nationals), Stephen Pagliuca (Boston Celtics), Michael Jordan and Curtis Polk (Charlotte Hornets, 23XI Racing), Steve Simon (Indiana Pacers, Indiana Fever), Jeffrey Vinik (Tampa Bay Lightning) and WISE Ventures (shared property of the Minnesota Vikings, Orlando City SC, Orlando Pride).

And there are more Buzzer investors: Ros Gold-Onwude, Ibrahim Hamad, Devin Johnson, Estee Portnoy and Taylor Rooks, and investment firms Black Capital, Chetrit Ventures, JDS Sports, Jump Capital, LionTree Partners, OneTeam Partners , Targa Partners and Micromanagement Ventures (the late David Stern fund).

Buzzer’s Series A comes after raising $ 4 million in seed funding last year.

Co-lead investor Sapphire Sport, a Sapphire Ventures fund, said its sponsors include City Football Group (owners of Manchester City), owners and investors of the NFL, MLB, NBA, from the WNBA, NHL and MLS, as well as entertainment organizations, family offices and institutional investors. Canaan is a early stage venture capital firm with over $ 5 billion under management.

With the funding, Michael Spirito, partner of Sapphire Sport, joins the board of directors of Buzzer. “Buzzer is tackling the biggest challenge facing the global sports industry – how to make live media rights more accessible and ultimately more valuable,” commented Spirito.

The opening of Euro 2020 marks the return of large-scale sporting events

By Sports events

ROME (AP) — Postponed a year, the biggest sporting event since the coronavirus brought the world to a standstill kicked off at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico on Friday — a milestone for both European and global sport.

The opening match of the European Football Championship was played in the Italian capital, the first country outside of Asia to be hit by the pandemic and the first in the world to implement a nationwide lockdown. Italy delighted the masked home fans by beating Turkey 3-0, scoring all the goals in the second half.

The tournament represents a major step forward on the road to recovery from one of the darkest chapters in the continent’s history since World War II. More than a million Europeans have died in the pandemic, including nearly 127,000 Italians.

“After everything that’s happened, now the situation is improving, I think the time has come to start giving the fans something to be happy about,” said Italy coach Roberto Mancini, who tested positive. to COVID-19 in November but was asymptomatic.

The tournament was postponed last March when countries scrambled to contain virus outbreaks and major sporting events around the world were canceled or suspended.

Many fear it’s still not safe to pack tens of thousands of fans into stadiums across Europe, but organizers hope measures such as crowd limits, staggered arrival times for fans , social distancing rules and plenty of hand sanitizers will help prevent a resurgence of viral infections. , which have fallen sharply in Europe in recent months.

In Rome, fans entering the stadium are required to bring documentation proving they have been vaccinated against the virus, tested negative within 48 hours of the game or already had the disease.

The sports world is watching. If all goes well, Euro 2020 can provide a boost of confidence for other major sporting events, such as the Tokyo Olympics, which are due to open on July 23 – also a year late. If not, it would be a serious setback that could have ramifications beyond football.

“Let’s hope for the best,” said Alessandro Savelloni, a 36-year-old Roman enjoying a beer with his wife at a street bar before the game. “We are emerging from a dark period. People need freedom. To resume a normal life.

The virus has already had an impact on the tournament, which for the first time is not hosted by one or two nations but is spread across the continent with matches in 11 cities.

Spain captain Sergio Busquets has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the team’s opener against Sweden in Sevilla on Monday. Another Spanish player tested positive, as did two Swedish players. The Spanish team were vaccinated on Friday.

Russian winger Andrey Mostovoy then became the first player to be kicked out of a national team Friday after testing positive.

Italy’s opener brought together the biggest crowd in the country since its full lockdown 15 months ago, even though the stadium was only 25 per cent full.

Tenor Andrea Bocelli, who recovered from COVID-19 in 2020, delivered a powerful rendition of Giacomo Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma” during the opening ceremony. Bocelli touched the hearts of millions in Italy and beyond when he performed a solo concert in Milan’s empty cathedral over Easter last year. Milan is the capital of the Lombardy region, at the time the epicenter of the pandemic in Europe.

In Rome and elsewhere in Italy, most virus restrictions have now been lifted. A midnight curfew and the obligation to wear a mask outside one’s home are the most tangible ways in which the pandemic is still affecting the daily lives of citizens.

Shops, restaurants, gyms, museums and theaters have reopened. Roman traffic returned to its usual chaotic state, with swarms of scooters vying for space on the lanes with honking cars. Tourists return too, although the historic center with its famous monuments remains less crowded than is normal for this time of year.

Metin Karagulle, a Turkish fan riding past the Colosseum on an electric scooter before the match, said being in Rome for the tournament opener was an “unforgettable” moment.

Italy still bans non-essential travel from Turkey, but many Turkish fans living in other European countries have traveled to Rome to support their national team.

Italian fans who watched the match on a big screen in a town center square were as thrilled with the victory as they were able to share the experience with each other.

“It was very moving, very beautiful,” said Rome resident Federico Riva. “The atmosphere, the fact that we were in the crowd, it’s something that we all missed. The stadium full of supporters, we needed all that, we really needed it. “

Components. ”

Spectators at trial sporting events must abide by new code of conduct

By Sports events

All spectators at the 16 pilot test events will be required to abide by a code of conduct which includes remaining seated whenever possible and avoiding contact with others outside of their social bubbles.

Spectators will also be required to wear a face covering at all times, download the HSE Covid-19 contract tracking app and follow the advice of staff and stewards.

Pilot events include GAA, camogie and women’s football, League of Ireland matches, rugby matches and other sports such as golf and athletics.

The first events take place on Friday and include Leinster v Dragons at RDS, Shamrock Rovers v Finn Harps at Tallaght Stadium and Cork City v Cabinteely at Turner’s Cross.

Stadiums with a capacity of more than 5,000 people will be limited to a maximum attendance of between 200 and 500 people initially.

For the test events, no food or drink will be available and entry times will be staggered to allow efficient and safe fan passage.

Chief Government Whip Jack Chambers released updated guidelines for the reopening of sports grounds on Monday which were drafted by a task force of sporting events experts and health and safety advisers.

They include mitigation measures to allow the safe return of spectators to sporting events.

These include advance communication with attendees, venues operating at reduced capacity, physical distancing, mask-wearing and hand hygiene.

A “robust” contact tracing system will also be in place.

These events will be used to assess and review progress towards increasing spectator capacity at events in July and August.

“I am acutely aware of fans’ impatience to see their home county, local club or sporting heroes in action again,” Mr Chambers said.

“These expert-led guidelines are important because they set out a clear path to allow large numbers of spectators to attend games again.

“They cover a wide range of areas, from ticketing and arriving at the pitch, to public transport and communications with supporters, to stadium signage, contact tracing and a host of other factors. important.

“The guidelines may be continually reviewed after each pilot event and will eventually pave the way for more sporting events as we move into the summer and fall.”

The task force will monitor events and adapt approaches, if necessary, as progress is made towards higher attendance later this summer.

There will be contact tracing linked to each ticket which will be held for 28 days, to allow sporting groups to assist the HSE if there is a case of Covid-19 linked to the event.

Later in the summer, as more people are vaccinated, it may be possible to increase attendance even further.

The event organizers will have primary responsibility and liaise with local authorities, public transport providers, the Garda and others.

Organizations have worked with their ticketing partners to ensure robust track and trace will be in place and this system has already been trialled in the UK.

Betway is one of the most famous bookies in India, which offers its customers not only a wide range of sports, but also a fairly good section of games and entertainment.

Additionally, from 2012 to 2016, Betway was one of Asia’s ten most popular bookies and simultaneously sponsored four English Premier League clubs and the Ninjas in Pajamas esports team.

It is through active sponsorship that Betway is still one of the most recognizable betting brands.

The office is owned by Betway Limited and operates under license MGA / B2C / 130/2006 issued by the Malta Gambling Authority (MGA).

Mobile version of the site and its differences

Now almost all bookmakers in India have a suitable mobile version.

Betway’s mobile web completely takes over the functionality and navigation of the full version of the site, with the exception of certain functions. However, the mobile platform leaves a double impression. The point is, the mobile site looks a bit outdated, and it will take some getting used to the interface.

The home page has a traditional element layout:

  • On the left – the pre-match line,
  • In the center – the best bets and live events.

On the changing banners in the center of the page, the bookmaker announces the most significant events, and offers new users to receive a welcome bonus.

From the top menu, you can access the casino, e-sports, slot machines sections, as well as the Betway blog.

All pre-game line sports are grouped by popularity level. The mobile functionality of the live section is also at a decent level.

Advantages of the mobile application

The Betway Sports app is slightly different from the mobile site.

The external design of the Betway app pleases the eye and does not distract from the main task. The interface is fully adapted to different devices, simple and practical. The navigation is thought out down to the smallest detail, access to the necessary sections is obtained in two clicks maximum.

The mobile program offers bettors the following products to choose from:

  • Betting on sporting events (and not only),
  • E-sport,
  • Virtual sports,
  • Online Casino,
  • Poker,
  • Vegas.

Each section has its own color scheme and logo, which contributes to the convenience of working

The official app is translated into 11 global languages ​​including Hindi which is very convenient for Indian gamers.

In addition, the main advantages of the Betway sports app include its working functions such as:

  • Deposit-replenishment of the account;
  • Payment-withdrawal of funds;
  • List of open (not counted) and closed (ended) bets;
  • Game history – list of sessions on the website and in the app;
  • Transaction history – all deposits and payments;
  • Implementation of newsletters activating news and notifications;
  • Responsible gaming advice and tools for self-control;
  • Change your password;
  • To help.

Betway Sportsbook Mobile

The sports line of the Betway India app includes more than 20 sports.

The popular sports line opens access to classic tournaments:

  • Football – matches of national teams, cups, top leagues and championships from around 40+ countries.
  • International Cricket Championships, T20.
  • Basketball-VTB League, Euro League, NBA, NCAAB, international competitions and more than 10 most popular championships.
  • Volleyball – about five European leagues, including matches of Russian and Italian national teams.
  • Tennis – ATP, WTA, a large selection of ITFs.

The bookmaker’s list of major high performance sports includes a complete set of bets: results, handicaps, totals, intervals, combination bets and statistics.

In the app also provides an excellent selection of cricket and quite well represented in football and tennis.

Hockey and basketball in the Betway India app are not included in the list of priority sports – the number of bets on them is lower than in other bookmakers in the country.


The disciplines where matches are currently being played are highlighted in the app with the “Live” button.

By choosing sporting events and betting on them, the live almost entirely repeats the pre-game line.

As for the functionality, the live leaves a lot to be desired: there is no option to add matches to favorites, and in the middle of a match day, it becomes embarrassing to follow several matches.

Some useful features include live tracking, current stats, and bet buyout. Video broadcasts are only available for the most popular events and with a positive account balance.


Betway is positioned as an e-sports company and offers one of the best ranges of video games: Dota 2, CS: GO, LoL, Starcraft 2, StarCraft: Brood War, Rocket League, Overwatch, Rainbow Six, Valorant, King of Glory, Warcraft III.

You can also find other major tournaments.

The list also includes card bets, totals and results.

The margin in the coefficients is around 8%.

How to place bets via the Betway Sports app

Standard and long-term bets on competition results are available in the app: tournament winner, prize places, top scorer.

There is also a “Bet Builder” which allows you to create unique bets from selected events.

To place a bet you must:

  1. Open the sports line to see all the matches.
  2. By clicking on the event, you will get the “markets” tab and can choose which auction to add to your coupon.
  3. Once you are sure of your choice, click on the “place a bet” option.

  2. Write your full name and date of birth,
  3. Enter the address and phone number.

Fans can return to football matches, rugby matches and sporting events in Wales as Parkrun can resume

By Sports events

Sports fans have been given the long-awaited green light to return in their thousands to live events in Wales.

From Monday, June 7 , large outdoor gatherings and events – such as football and rugby matches, concerts and sporting activities – can accommodate up to 4,000 non-seated and 10,000 seated people.

This means that parkrun events and other organized running groups can also resume activity.

The Welsh Government has said that all organizers planning events and activities must carry out a risk assessment and also put measures in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus, including social distancing.

This latest announcement from the Welsh Government comes as First Minister Mark Drakeford confirmed Wales will follow a gradual move to coronavirus alert level one, with outdoor events opening first.

This opens the door for fans to attend the Six Nations Under-20s, which take place exclusively in Cardiff between June 19 and July 13 at Cardiff Arms Park.

Three of Welsh rugby’s four regions are in action for the PRO14 Rainbow Cup final round on the weekend of June 12 – the first weekend after the rule change – but only two are at home, to be followed by a ‘ North v South final in Treviso, Italy a week later.

The Ospreys host Benetton on Saturday June 12 at Brewery Field in Bridgend and the Scarlets host Edinburgh on Sunday June 13 at Parc y Scarlets. Although these regions may welcome fans, it will be at their discretion and they may decide to postpone the return of fans until the new season given that they will have a little over a week’s notice to prepare. The Dragons take on Leinster in Dublin on Friday June 11.

As far as football is concerned, the Women of Wales host Scotland in a friendly match at Parc y Scarlets on Tuesday, June 15. News on whether fans will be able to attend will come directly from the Football Association of Wales.

Swansea City, Cardiff City and Newport County will all resume operations when the new season begins on the weekend of August 7.

The latest easing of coronavirus restrictions in Wales on sporting events will mean fans will be able to return to live matches in droves for the first time since March 2020.

Other rule changes coming from June 7 include up to 30 people will be able to meet outside in Wales, while respecting social distancing,

Ministers are expected to review the public health situation before June 21 to determine whether indoor events can resume. Government officials say a two-step approach allows more people to be vaccinated.

Other changes to indoor activities to consider later in June include increasing the number of indoor events and the reopening of rinks.

Drakeford said: “I want to thank everyone in Wales for all they have done to control the spread of coronavirus and keep rates low. The emergence of the delta variant (also known as Indian variant) shows that the pandemic is not over yet and all of us must continue to take measures to protect ourselves and our loved ones.

“The risk of infection is significantly lower outdoors than indoors. That’s why we’re phasing in the changes in this three-week cycle. This will allow more people to enjoy outdoor events. and enjoy the Welsh summer, while we continue to roll out the vaccination program to all adults.

“We will review the public health situation in a few weeks to see if we can continue to ease restrictions and restart indoor events.”

It comes after several pilot crowd events have been staged at Welsh sports matches in recent weeks, with a few test events yet to take place.

They include:

  • The Newport County League Two play-off semi-final against Forest Green Rovers at Rodney Parade on May 18, where around 900 fans were in attendance.
  • Four days later, Swansea City fans returned to the Liberty Stadium for the first time in 14 months to see their side beat Barnsley and progress to the Championship play-off final at Wembley. Around 3,000 Swans fans were in attendance on May 22 at the Liberty.
  • Glamorgan v Lancashire at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff from June 3-6 will host between 750 and 1,000 spectators.
  • Wales football fans are set to return to their first live match on Saturday June 5, when 6,500 spectators will watch Gareth Bale and Co. in action as they take on Albania in the final match before the start of the Euro 2020.
  • The Fishguard Triathlon is also held on June 11 and 12, with participants registered only at Fishguard and St David’s.

China suspends all high-risk sporting events after deadly mountain ultra-marathon

By Sports events

The staggering death toll from the 100-kilometre (62-mile) ultra-marathon in Gansu province has sparked public outcry over lax industry standards and weak government regulation.

On Wednesday, China’s General Administration of Sports said it was shutting down all high-risk sporting events that lack a clear oversight body, established rules and safety standards, according to a declaration on its website.

Suspended sports include mountain and desert running, wingsuit flying and ultra-long distance racing, according to the statement.

The administration did not specify how long the suspension would last, but said it was reviewing the country’s sporting events in detail to improve regulatory systems, strengthen standards and rules and strengthen safety.

He also ordered local authorities “not to hold any sports competitions unless necessary” and to cancel any events that pose security risks in the run-up to the Chinese Communist Party’s centenary, which falls on July 1.

Authorities did not say how many races will be affected by the suspension. According to the China Athletics Association, 481 trail races and 25 ultra-marathons were held in 2019, more than a quarter of all long-distance running events in the country.

Marathons and trail races have exploded in popularity as China’s rising middle class has caught the running bug in recent years. But industry insiders say the races are often poorly organised, lacking in safety measures and contingency planning – and sometimes plagued with injuries and fatalities.

Trail races often take place in remote areas of the country that are lagging in development and resources. The deadly May 22 mountain run took place in the remote countryside of Gansu, one of the country’s poorest regions.

Most of the victims, including some of the nation’s top distance runners, were ill-equipped for the cold and died of hypothermia – a dangerous drop in body temperature caused by prolonged exposure to freezing cold.

The tragedy shocked the Chinese running community and sparked public outrage, with many questioning whether organizers had properly planned the race or prepared participants for the extreme weather conditions.

Even before Thursday’s announcement, dozens of marathons and trail races had been canceled or postponed across the country in the past two weeks, according to state media.

ESPN Veteran Ivan Maisel Joins New On3 College Sports Website Network

By Sports website

In November, longtime ESPN college football writer Ivan Maisel was one of some 300 employees made redundant in the company’s latest round of layoffs. In 2002, Maisel was the first college football writer hired for, and he’s been a big part of their coverage since then. Now he has announced his next move, joining the soon to be launched college sports site network, which involves Shannon Terry (as CEO) and many others who previously worked at Rivals and 247 Sports. Maisel said he was heading there as vice president of editorial, senior editor and investor. Here’s more from Maisel’s post to the new site on why he made the decision:

I understood that what I want to do is continue to cover college football nationwide, as I have been doing since 1987. I will do it through a new platform. Today is my first day on, the name derived from what players are saying as they break their caucus.

Our goal at On3 is to be the college sports destination for fans who love not only games but the show. It might be redundant, now that I think about it, but we intend to cover college sports from the end of eighth grade to the minute Roger Goodell (or Adam Silver) goes to the lectern to start. the draft. We will try to capture the wonder of college sports, both the wonder (How did this player do that?) And the wonder out loud (Why did this coach do that?) .

On3 is new, but not the people behind it. CEO Shannon Terry and his team created They created Like these sites, On3 will focus on recruiting. We intend to use the data to shed some light on recruiting, to define and explain the creation of rights to the name, image and likeness of student-athletes and, of course, to better explain the field play as well.

There will be a difference between On3 and these sites – a greater focus on writing. We want On3 to be the trusted voice of fans from College Park to College Station, from Boulder to Rocky Top. The staff we bring together will bring a tremendous amount of talent and experience to our readers, all with a mission to become synonymous with national university sport.

It’s interesting to see the launch of another network of college sports venues (their main site says the launch will take place on August 15). AA has learned that it already has agreements with some established sites, including sites covering Clemson and the State of Ohio. We’ll see how it goes, and we’ll see what Maisel does there. But it’s certainly remarkable that a new site appeals to someone so well established months before its launch.

Mandatory masks and no alcohol for spectators at pilot sporting events

By Sports events

Spectators will not need to be vaccinated to attend pilot sporting events from next week, but mandatory mask-wearing and physical distancing will be enforced, Minister of State for Sport Jack Chambers has confirmed.

Mr Chambers said stadiums will initially operate at 5-10 per cent capacity, but this could increase from early July. Speaking on RTÉ’s Today with Claire Byrne programme, Mr Chambers said the government was putting in place a “clear path back” for spectators to return to sporting events.

Plans are in place for 15 pilot events from June 11, involving a range of sports including GAA, rugby, football, athletics and golf.

Mr Chambers said his department had tried to ensure a mix of men’s and women’s games, with offers across the country.

“We try to produce a really controlled environment. . . We are trying to build trust for a safe return for low-risk spectators,” he said.

Tickets for these events will be issued by sports organizations to a named recipient and the identity of the ticket holder will be checked upon entering the stadium, it said. There will be staggered entries and exits to events, with “strict rules” to control crowds at entry points and spectators assigned to specific “areas”. “Active travel” to and from the games will also be encouraged, Mr Chambers said. Food and drink will not be permitted initially, he confirmed.


“After each event and pilot, there will be a debriefing, and the lessons learned will be compiled and shared with all other sports organisations,” he added.

Antigen tests can be used at some of the pilot events, but that will be decided on a “case-by-case basis”, he said. If a confirmed case of the virus is identified among attendees, other spectators will be contacted through their tickets, he said. Mr Chambers said it was important to get fans back to games because “it’s outdoors, it’s safe, it’s remote and there’s mask-wearing”.

Meanwhile, 100 fans will be allowed to attend local matches in June, rising to 200 spectators in July. Outdoor matches are allowed to take place from June 7. The stadiums with a capacity of 5,000 people will be able to accommodate 200 spectators per match from June and 500 from July. “Clear protocols” will be issued by sporting bodies, Chambers added.
