According to reports, the Premier League will maintain its policy of only allowing fans into games if they have been vaccinated or can show proof of a negative Covid test. The condition for entry into stadia has been in place since the start of the season.
The government has announced that vaccine passports will no longer be required for mass events, but the Premier League refuses to budge.
The Premier League is committed to ensuring fan safety at all of its games while maintaining full capacity crowds throughout the season. According to the Daily Mail, they intend to have a vaccine passport system in place by the beginning of October.
Additionally, as part of the Premier League’s plan to reduce the risk of Covid transmission, the number of spot-checks at stadiums will be increased to ensure that fans in attendance have been double-jabbed or have tested negative. Those who do not meet the requirements may be denied entry.
The Premier League will also send out a series of messages to fans reminding them of the protocols in place, such as using the one-way system, wearing a mask indoors, аnd аvoiding close contаct with strаngers.
