Those attending England’s upcoming Euro 2020 group games at Wembley will be required to show proof of a coronavirus vaccine, making England’s match against Croatia the first UK sporting event to require vaccine passports.
After many rumours and speculations, UEFA has informed football fans over the age of 11 that they will indeed have to present proof of full vaccination in order to attend Sunday’s game.
Alternatively, those who are yet to receive both doses of the vaccination can present proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of game day.
The highly anticipated game between England and Croatia – taking place on Sunday 13th June – will bolster an optimistic 25% crowd capacity. All those in attendance must prove their vaccination status via the official NHS App.
UEFa says its “main priority” is to deliver a safe tournament and is currently “working with the local governments and health authorities to ensure measures adhere to the public health guidance of the host country”.
