Face mask is required for all sports users over the age of 15, other than during sports or exercise performance. Helsinki Metropolitan Area declared on 20.11.2020 the following:

All city-run indoor team sports and contact sport activities for people over the age of 20 will be temporarily suspended for three weeks. Amateur-level matches, competitions and regional play-offs will also be cancelled during this time. Private operators are asked to observe these same restrictions. It is also recommended that all leisure clubs for adults in the metropolitan area limit their activities to things that take place within their own groups.

The cities will send the relevant organisations detailed instructions and will cancel their reserved practice times for the duration of the suspension.

The new restrictions will not apply to individual and group sport competitions on the national team, national and Division I levels, nor to professional athletes training for international competitions.
