London| Fans participating in the Premier League next season may require a COVID status certificate, which will serve as proof of two vaccinations or a negative lateral flow test. According to a report in the Daily Mail newspaper, the Premier League wants Covid certificates for fans, although the government says such certificates will not be required once social distancing restrictions are lifted this month.
The report said, under proposals being developed in consultation with the government’s Event Research Programme, supporters would be required to attend all matches in the top flight next season with a COVID status certificate – two vaccinations or a negative lateral flow test. proof may be required.
The UK government is planning a full home return to sports and entertainment venues after the country reopens on 19 July.
However, the reopening has led to a spurt in cases such as the England cricket team, in which seven members of the team tested positive on Tuesday. This forced the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to restructure the team.
Premier League officials reportedly fear a surge in positive cases in the country after the country’s reopening could lead to a re-imposition of restrictions and restrictions on the entry of fans.
