After the specified period, reserve players will be entitled to sign a contract (no later than 12.00 CEST on September 6, 2021). If you have decided not to participate in the tournament, we ask you to inform us about this decision so that we can invite a reserve player in advance.

 We would like to note that the current rules of Latvia for recognised sports competitions do not contain a requirement for quarantine upon entry into the country. However, as usual, it will be necessary to provide evidence of vaccination or present a fresh PCR test. At the time of writing, there are no requirements for playing in masks. However, the current state regulations may impose additional restrictions on people who do not have an official vaccination when visiting public places (this does not apply to the hotel or the playing area).

In this regard, we would ask the participants who have been vaccinated with officially approved vaccines from the European Union — Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson — to report this fact to the Organising Committee for the correct planning of its work.
