FSA statement: New COVID-19 rules

On Wednesday 8th December the Government announced its intention to move to “Plan B” in response to the Omicron variant. This means fans will need a “vaccine passport” or negative test in order to access large sporting events. 

The Football Supporters’ Association (FSA) would encourage all supporters to look for information from their clubs, or any clubs they’re visiting, in the next week and familiarise themselves with any new protocols, ahead of the match.

Malcolm Clarke, chair of the FSA, said:

“From the earliest days of the pandemic we have always said that supporters should follow the expert advice of medical professionals and scientists.

“If those experts feel that public health is best-served by the introduction of vaccine passports or lateral flow tests for all large outdoor events, then we accept that requirement.

“We’d encourage clubs to work with local fan groups to ensure that any new procedures run smoothly and those with genuine medical exemptions are supported.”
