Sweden opens up for sport

By The Assam Tribune

STOCKHOLM, May 29: Competitive and professional sport can resume from June 14, the Swedish government said on Friday, but games would have to be played mostly without an audience.

With Sweden�s softer approach to the new coronavirus, children�s sports activities continued and adults were able to go to practice sessions.

�Now we�re also opening up for competitive play among all ages, which means that high-level sports can resume once again,� culture minister Amanda Lind told a press conference.

She said it would apply to all sports and at all levels, but only in a way that respects current guidelines from the Public Health Agency.

Events will have to take place outdoors and adhere to a ban on public gatherings of more than 50 people, meaning most games will have to be played in front of mostly empty stands. While professional sports would be exempt from the agency�s recommendation to avoid domestic travel of more than one to two hours, lower level teams would have to keep tournaments and matches local. � AFP
