Due to the risk associated with the possibility of infection by coronavirus, the leaders of the Premier League refuse the traditional handshake teams and judges.
A message explaining this decision, appeared on the official website of the English football League.
“To preserve health before the Premier League between players and judges will not shake hands, it will last for some time,” said the leaders of one of the richest and most popular football leagues in the world.
The website of the Premier League recalled that the coronavirus is transmitted from person to person by airborne droplets and can be transmitted through the hands and handshakes.
At the same time, it was guaranteed that the teams and judges will observe the rest of the pre-match Protocol.
“When both teams continue to line up, all will be accompanied by musical topic, the Premier League, and then receivers will bypass opponents without a handshake,” reads the announcement.
