For the organisation of tournaments or competitions at the national level, such as the Malaysian Football League (M-League), Malaysian Hockey League (MHL) and Sepak Takraw League (STL), police permission is required for interstate travel.

The competitions must also be held in accordance with the Sports Bubble Model, without the presence of spectators. Meanwhile, parties involved in international-level tournaments must get prior approval from the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

According to the ministry, phased central training for M-League, MHL and STL teams on a “home or quarantine camp” basis, as well as centralised training programmes under the National Sports Council and the respective state sports council on a “quarantine camp” basis, are allowed during the CMCO and RMCO.

Group activities where participants remain in their respective spaces, such as aerobics and yoga are also allowed, at 50% capacity of the area concerned, and under strict supervision.

Nevertheless, activities that involve the movement and gatherings of a large number of people that make physical distancing difficult to observe, such as fun runs, fun rides, marathons and triathlons, are not allowed.

The standard operating procedures in Sabah and Sarawak are slightly different, so the public can go to the National Security Council’s website for more information.
