The infection strikes a representation. There will be no Czech…

first_imgPhoto: Aleš Krecl, Czech hockeyDue to the recent occurrence of the disease among members of youth selections and the related quarantine measure, the CSLH decided to cancel the August representation events. Representatives of Czech hockey informed about it in a press release. The Czech hockey games, prepared in an alternative date in Brno, as well as the preparatory camps, matches and tournaments of the youth national teams were canceled. There will also be no Summer Camp of Czech Hockey for players of the years 2010 and 2011, which was to take place at the beginning of the month.Representative events are attended by players from different clubs, and in a situation where the occurrence of an infection with a single team member usually means a fortnightly quarantine for the entire team and sometimes the closing of the stadium, club hockey and the coming year of competitions are in jeopardy.“Under the currently set quarantine measures, the competition season could probably not take place,” said the president of Czech Hockey, Tomáš Král. “We negotiate daily with representatives of state institutions on how to deal with the situation of clubs organizationally and economically. We are working hard on it, but while we could handle other restrictions, we cannot compete without players, training and matches. ”Photo: Martin VoltrOther restrictions also complicate the international season. Under the current conditions, the Russian team, for example, would not be able to take part in the Czech Hockey Games, and Finnish hockey players would also have to apologize.The development of the situation and the start of the competition season will be addressed by the meetings of the ČSLH Executive Committee in August and early September 2020, which will address, among other things, possible adjustments to the schedule, game rules and competition model.The management of ČSLH is in regular contact with the head of the group for dismantling epidemiological measures Rastislav Maďar, the chairman of the National Sports Agency Milan Hnilička and together with representatives of state institutions and other sports associations they are looking for ways to start and implement the competition season. “We still have some time and we do everything to make it happen,” added Tomáš Král.
