Premier League fans to be subject to Covid spot-checks
The Premier League has announced fans will be subject to random spot-checks of their Covid-19 status in the opening weeks of the new season.
“Initially, in the first few matchdays of the season, supporters can expect the introduction of random spot-checks for ticket holders at some grounds as we establish the required processes so clubs and fans are prepared for all match attenders to have their Covid-19 status checked upon arrival, should it become mandatory,” the Premier League statement added.
Fans must also comply with a supporter code of conduct, which stresses the importance of wearing masks in indoor areas, avoiding close contact with people they do not know and following one-way signs around stadiums.
Meanwhile, nine Premier League players or members of staff were positive for coronavirus in the latest round of testing.
