Covid passports are set to be demanded from fans who want to watch Arsenal’s preseason matches against Tottenham next month.
Arsenal’s men and women will face their north London counterparts in preparatory games ahead of the new season.
The easing of restrictions in England means stadiums can welcome capacity crowds for the start of the 2021/2022 season.
However, the coronavirus infection rates still show high numbers of infections and the UK Government wants to keep it down.
One way to achieve that is to admit only double-jabbed adults into places likes stadiums.
It is likely that it would become mandatory during the next campaign and Tottenham is planning for that eventuality.
They have now informed their adult fans planning to attend the games that they will need the covid passports from the NHS app certifying them vaccinated, immune or having tested negative for the disease, as reported by The Sun.
This will also impact on any Arsenal fans that want to see the game live, that is if any are allowed at all.
Football is still going to be affected by the Coronavirus and it seems it is just a case of getting used to it, especially if you want to go into stadiums.
