THREE-QUARTERS of fans are ready to make an immediate return to football stadiums in the new season, a survey released today found, but almost half would feel more comfortable if a vaccine passport was required for entry.
The Tory government plans to make proof of full coronavirus vaccination mandatory for nightclubs and other venues “where large crowds gather” by the end of September.
A Football Supporters’ Association survey found that while 75 per cent are keen to make an immediate return, 47 per cent would feel much more comfortable, or somewhat more comfortable, if proof of vaccination or a negative test were required for entry.
A vaccine passport was even more of a concern among the 22 per cent of respondents who said they would not be returning straight away, with 68 per cent of that group saying such a scheme would make them much more comfortable or somewhat more comfortable.
The Premier League and EFL are understood to be considering the practicalities of Covid certification, having publicly expressed support for a review of such a scheme in April.
Proof of vaccination or a negative test were conditions of entry to test events in June and earlier this month, such as Wimbledon and England’s Euro 2020 matches at Wembley.
