Fans attending Sunday’s 2020 opening match against Croatia in England will be the first to be able to use passports for the coronavirus vaccine at a British sporting event. UEFA’s European governing body has confirmed that ticket holders based in the UK can have access by proving a negative side-flow test or by showing proof of full vaccination – both doses have been received at least 14 days before the match. Cardholders located elsewhere will be required to prove a negative side-flow test.
There will be around 22,500 spectators in England in the first two matches of the teams, against Croatia and Scotland at Wembley, with a stadium capacity of 25 per cent.
“All ticket holders aged 11 and over must prove that they have a low risk of entering Covid-19 Wembley Stadium. If you do not do this, you will not be able to attend the match,” UEFA said. his website.
If the vaccine passport system succeeds, it can pave the way for a larger crowd when Wembley organizes tournament matches.
The UK has so far given more than 27 million people two doses of the vaccine – more than 50 per cent of adults – more than 40 million have had a single dose.
