To enter: 

  • All spectators, including minors, must have their tickets to enter.  

  • Do not bring bottles, glass containers, unprocessed food, alcoholic beverages, or pets. 

  • Arrive at the competition venues ahead of time to avoid overcrowding at the entrances. 

  • Everyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

  • Do not throw water at the athletes in the case of road sports.
