In today’s sports world, game on means there’s no match for stringent hygiene.
Join this exclusive free webinar, where Jonathan Weiss, Commercial Director of B2B for Europe, Australia and New Zealand at Reckitt, will be joined by Brian Nourse, Executive General Manager, Event Experience and Operations at Cricket Australia, Alex Kountouris, Head of Sports Science & Sports Medicine at Cricket Australia and Scott Tutton, Head of Clubs & Volunteers at Cricket Australia to discuss why the future of professional and community sport is so closely intertwined with hygiene.
Sharing learnings from the Ashes test series, together they share actionable advice for venues, stadiums and sports clubs on how to help keep players and participants protected all season long.
During this webinar you’ll learn about:
- Hygiene protocols and approaches the Cricket Australia team took to navigate through the transition from ‘keeping COVID out’ when there was no COVID, to ‘living with COVID’ where there was a real risk of contracting COVID.
- Lessons the team has learned trying to ensure that there is clear, consistent and implementable guidance for coaches, parents and volunteers. Balancing a focus on hygiene without removing the fun and connection and aligning it to public health messaging to ensure that cricket is a continuation of those good hygiene practices, rather than an outlet to escape them.
- What Targeted Hygiene is and how sports organisations and venues can implement it. Principles of strict hygiene protocols in sports and the need for rigour and science to guide hygiene protection measures.
- Learnings from sports partnerships beyond Cricket Australia including the MCG, Wembley Stadium, The FA and Major League Baseball x Lysol Pro Solutions.
