Entries & Reserves

  • Final entries: the teams are to provide the names for the main team (9+9) plus the reserves. No limit to reserves athletes entered, but teams must clearly indicate which ones are to travel and which ones are ‘non-travelling’ for accommodation and invoices planning purposes.
  • Final confirmations on site will be different for each Match (Day 1 separately from Day 2). Any athletes from the list of 9 + 9 and reserve athletes could be confirmed during final confirmations. Meaning, there could be differences from Day 1 to Day 2, if team decides so.
  • If late injury happens (after the final confirmation but before the first call times of the discipline), the substitution with a reserve or any athlete from the main team is possible. But the injury has to be confirmed by the medical officer from LOC and done before the first call times.
