There are still two weeks before the opening of the 2020-21 CBA League. Each team has entered the final preparation stage. The CBA will implement up to 4 foreign players in the new season. There is no limit on the number of replacements in the regular season, but the playoffs are not allowed. The introduction of new foreign aid or foreign aid replacement rules, but due to the recent severe situation of the new crown epidemic abroad, CBA has formulated a foreign aid rule that can be called the most stringent in history, that is, if the foreign aid enters the country if the new crown test is positive, the foreign aid cannot participate in the new season League; if the foreign aid isolation period ends and the team tests positive after training with the whole team, the team will be disqualified for the new season.
Soon after this rule was notified to the teams,
Such strict regulations make all participating clubs very nervous, because if you are not careful, all previous efforts will be lost or even the whole team will be disqualified. This is a loss that no team can bear. Therefore, at present, all teams are extremely cautious when introducing foreign aid. Geng Jie, chairman of the Sichuan Jinqiang Club, said: “The foreign aid we choose must first have a recent nucleic acid test report, and a nucleic acid test will be performed before boarding the plane. After getting off the plane, we need to follow the process. Now we would rather stop for three minutes than grab a second. Even if some games in the early part of the season are participating in the Chinese class, we must ensure the safety of the players. As well as the smooth progress of the league." According to Geng Jie, due to the complicated immigration procedures and long isolation time for foreign aid, most of the foreign aid of CBA teams cannot keep up with the games in the first half of the season.
