  When many domestic sports events have not yet rematched, the CBA has been able to restore the audience. Why can Yao Ming be in the front every time? The answer is to let professional people do professional things.

  At the beginning of this year, due to the impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, CBA fell into a long-term suspension. Yao Ming and his team worked hard, and the most important task was to formulate an epidemic prevention plan.

  To this end, Yao Ming turned to the "Basketball Son-in-law" Academician Zhong Nanshan. Li Shaofen, the wife of Academician Zhong Nanshan, was a famous national player of the Chinese women's basketball team in the 1950s and 1960s. It can be said that Zhong Nanshan's team contributed a lot to the preparations for the CBA rematch.

  Yao Ming once introduced that the Chinese Basketball Association invited Zhong Nanshan and his team's experts to serve as epidemic prevention guidance, to make suggestions and refine the plan, which has become an important guarantee for the safe and smooth progress of the CBA semi-finals under the epidemic.

  Before the start of the semi-finals, each team will conduct at least 3 nucleic acid tests. After the CBA semi-finals were determined to host the venue, Qingdao and Dongguan regions both formulated relevant prevention and control plans in advance according to the requirements of epidemic prevention and control, and implemented "one person, one file" health management for participants.

  Strict divisions are implemented in the competition area, and "closed loop management" is adopted for athletes, coaches, and referees.

  On June 20, the CBA officially rematched after being suspended for about 5 months. After the rematch, Zhong Nanshan and Li Shaofen, two old men with a fate of basketball, accompanied by Yao Ming, went to the Dongguan Division to watch the game and accepted the No. 36 jersey with the names of the two before the start of the game.

  In addition, the CBA is also remarkable in the implementation of the epidemic prevention program after the rematch. Guangdong player Zhao Rui was suspended for violating the epidemic prevention regulations, and Liaoning player Guo Ailun was also warned for violations.

  These have become the CBA's first to restore the confidence of the audience. In order to ensure the health and safety of all spectators, CBA has also introduced a number of epidemic prevention measures.

  When fans apply for ticket purchases, they must first fill in the ticket purchase commitment form through the official ticketing platform of the CBA League, and select the officially designated nucleic acid test location and test time, and then go to the test location for testing according to the time.

  After the nucleic acid test results are generated, the official ticketing platform will send a ticket purchase link to those who pass the test. Ticket buyers can purchase tickets for the game within 48 hours and enter the game with their ID card and local health code before the game.
