Fans ‘will only be able to attend Prem matches if they can prove they are fully vaccinated or have negative Covid test’


THE PREMIER LEAGUE will continue their rule of only allowing fans into matches if they are vaccinated or can show proof of a negative Covid test, according to reports.

The condition for entry into stadia has been in place since the beginning of the season.

Many Premier League fans around the country have abided by the Covid protocols in place

The government has announced that vaccine passports will no longer be required for mass events but the Premier League are refusing to drop their standards.

The Premier League is determined to ensure fan safety at each of their fixtures while ensuring full capacity crowds remain for the entire season.

As such, they plan to have a vaccine passport system in place by the beginning of October, according to the Daily Mail.

And as part of the Premier League’s plans to reduce the risk of Covid transmission, it will increase the number of spot-checks at stadiums, to ensure fans in attendance are double-jabbed or have tested negative.

Those who fail to meet the requirements could be barred from entry.

In addition, the Premier League will send out a series of messages to fans reminding them of the protocols in place – to follow the one-way system, wear a mask while indoors and warning them to avoid close contact with strangers.


Deputy chief medical officer Professor Jonathan Van-Tam has also appeared in a video to advise fans to get vaccinated.

The Premier League, key to maintain competition, have kept safety guidelines in place despite cricket and race horsing abandoning such measures at the end of the summer.

But Premiership rugby are following in the footsteps of the Premier League by advising fans to arrive at matches early while wearing a face covering.

Meanwhile, the government has also extended the elite sports exemption, allowing clubs competing in Europe to travel to red-list countries to play, rather than meeting their opponents in a neutral venue – as occurred last season.
