All national sporting organisations will need to abide by the new sporting protocols to ensure a safe return for all athletes on the field.

Fiji National Sports Commission executive chairman Peter Mazey made these comments yesterday while opening the Sports Safe Fiji workshop at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.

He said the sports commission has been working tirelessly in preparing mandatory guidelines to maintain the spread of Coronavirus when all sports restrictions are lifted.

Speaking to the 16 participants from different organisations, he addressed the need for all national sporting bodies to align with the commission’s guidelines and protocols.

“The new normal will be self-distancing and sanitising, we all know now how important this is for sports to begin,” he said.

“If we want to be part of the Australia and New Zealand bubble or the Pacific island bubble then we have to follow the new protocols.”

Mazey also emphasised the importance of accreditation for all federations.

These protocols would also be discussed and followed at all sports competitions including international, national, communities and in schools.

Participants of the workshop also discussed the guidelines that has been raised in their various organisations.
