Following antibody tests, the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (SPKC) has given the ‘green light’ to the Russian Youth Hockey League (MHL) for the game, in which “Riga” will host Sakhalin “Akuli” in its field on Wednesday, the agency LETA found out in the Latvian club.
On Tuesday, the first match between the two teams was postponed indefinitely. According to Sportacentrs.com, the match was postponed because about ten positive cases of Covid-19 were detected in the opposing team.
The game scheduled for Wednesday will take place as planned, starting at 18.30 in “Arena Riga”.
According to the agency LETA, “Akuli” players were tested for Covid-19 antibodies, and those hockey players who have already contracted the virus and cannot endanger others, according to the SPKC, will be able to go on the field on Wednesday.
Mutual games for both teams in Latvia are also planned on Friday and Saturday. Tuesday’s match is expected to be postponed to Thursday, so the teams will compete with each other for four days in a row.
The Riga team with 12 points in 12 games in the Western Conference takes the seventh place among 17 Western group teams.
