PCR test requirements for foreign spectators at U19 Women's World Cup in Hungary

DEBRECEN (Hungary) - The FIBA 19 Women's Basketball World Cup tips off on August 7 at two venues in Debrecen, Hungary, and traveling fans will be able to take in the action live at the arena.

In the Olah Gabor Sport Hall, a maximum of 600 spectators will be allowed while 1,000 spectators can be granted entry to see games played in the Hodos Emre Sport Hall.

As safety measures are still in place because of Covid-19, spectators coming from outside the country to watch the tournament must have a negative PCR test within 72 hours before their flights and then after arriving in Hungary, they must have another negative PCR test within five days.

Once there is a negative test, the testing authority will provide a certificate that must be shown at the entrance of the competition venue to security guards before being granted entry.

The tournament is being staged until August 15.

Italy, Australia, Egypt and the USA are in Group A while Russia, Chinese Taipei, Hungary and Argentina make up Group B. In Group C are Spain, France, Brazil and Korea while in Group D are Mali, Canada, Japan and the Czech Republic.
