Yesterday, Oberhof and Antholz announced, all competitions will be without spectators. Money for tickets will be refunded.
So, just Kontiolahti are going to accept viewers in November-January, but this is limited to 4500 per day.
Early, in a press release, the biathlon association, writes that there will be no race on Sjusjøen due to local authorities' recommendation not to arrange larger events in Ringsaker.
The Norwegian Biathlon Association is looking for an alternative opening arena to Sjusjøen for the planned start of the season 13-15 November. The main candidates - Trussile, Geilo and Holmenkollen.
