Ministry of Tourism & Sports Gives Green Light for 14 Sports Behind Closed Doors

Sports Authority

The Ministry of Tourism and Sports has given the green light to organise 14 sport disciplines behind closed doors and with strict measures to prevent COVID 19.

The decision came after the Centre for COVID 19 Situation Administration (CCSA) had examined and approved the manuscript on the safety measures for sports competitions proposed by the Sports Authority of Thailand.

Gongsak Yodmani, Governor of the Sports Authority of Thailand said: “After studying the manuscript thoroughly, the CCSA has allowed sports competitions to be organised without spectators”.

The 14 sports are football, volleyball, basketball, sepak takraw, golf, tennis, cycling, motor racing, badminton, snooker, jet ski, cycling, bowling and boxing.

However, the CCSA insisted that safety measures must be followed strictly by athletes, officials and concerned personnel before, during or after the competition. In addition, the CCSA will conduct follow-up assessments continually and will prohibit any sport competition that does not follow the rules.
