SPECIAL RULES
In accordance with Swedish rules, overage players are not allowed in any class
In Lundaspelen (no exemptions are given, and all players must be able to provide identification).
Please note that handball paste (glue) is only allowed in the 15-, 16- and 19 age categories. We ask you to be extremely careful when using paste. Remember to leave the arena and changing room in the same condition as you want to find it when you get there. If teams are careless with handball paste use, a cleaning fee may be charged by the hall host. The competition jury can exclude teams that violate these rules. It is the responsibility of each coach to read and understand the competition rules found on the website and convey this to their players.

SHOWER IN THE HALLS
Remember that you must shower in the hall in which you have played a match. Unfortunately, there are no showers at the schools.

TRAFFIC INFORMATION
To get the most out of your stay in Lund, it is a good idea to plan your transport around Lund with a good margin. According to § 7 of the Competition Rules "All teams must be changed and ready at their playing field no later than 15 minutes before the start of the match (if a team is late, the tournament management must be contacted before a decision is made)". It is your obligation to plan the transport to the arena with such a good margin that you can handle long delays.

LUND'S CITY BUSES
You receive a QR code from Skånetrafiken when you check in at the school/hotel. Scan the code using the reader that is available when enter the bus. You can find the bus timetables on Skånetrafiken's website or in Skånetrafiken's app. https://www.skanetrafiken.se

Please note that the buses are not only for Lundaspel participants. It is important that you show the people of Lund how nice and friendly guests we have during Lundaspelen. The bus drivers may refuse you and your team if the bus is full, but usually a new bus arrives within 10 minutes. All buses stop in the city center at the stop "Botulfsplatsen". Here you can easily switch to one of the other lines if necessary.

LUNDASPELEN BUS LINES
Lundaspelen has several bus routes to the arenas outside of Lund. These depart from the roundabout outside the "Arena Park" car park between Idrottshallen and Sparbanken Skåne Arena at Stadsparken. The buses have their own timetable and they depart from 07.30 on the 27-29th of December and then depart until the last match is finished in the respective arena.
The timetable for our bus routes can be found on the website.

PARKING
If you are traveling in Lund with your own car or bus, it is important that you follow the signs about where it is permitted to park. In Sweden, you often have to pay for parking. If you park in an unauthorized place, it is very likely that you will be fined. Parking is prohibited around the Sparbanken Skåne Arena, but right next to it is the Arena Park car park at Stadsparken. Ask Lundaspelen's staff for advice outside the arenas and schools. For safety reasons, it is very important that cars do not block escape routes.
The easiest is to use Easy Park, Parkter or Mobill mobile applications to park in LKP's parking lots. Use the special Lundaspelen code, 4883, to get a price of 100SEK/day or 450 SEK / 5 days.

RISK OF MIXUP
There is a risk of mixing up Stångby/Tornahallen and Östra Tornhallen and Nyvångshallen in Löddeköping with Nyvångshallen in Dalby.
