Chelsea fans urged to showcase proof of vaccination to be allowed into Stamford Bridge

According to The Guardian, Chelsea fans will need to fork out proof that they have been vaccinated in order to be permitted for matches in the upcoming campaign at Stamford Bridge.

The COVID-19 pandemic saw games being played out in front of empty stands for all but one game day. While fans did return for our last home game of the Premier League season, it was but a token number as far as the stadium’s capacity is concerned.

A step towards normalcy will be taken for the upcomign campaign as supporters are set to return. While there has been a lull in COVID positive cases, we are still in the midst of the pandemic depending on which part of the world you are in.

The Blues are not prepared to let their guard down and will approach a better safe than sorry approach. All Chelsea fans keen to attend will need to be fully vaccinated or will need to show a negative COVID test. This restriction will come into force on August 4 when the Blues take on Tottenham Hotspur in a pre-season game.

According to the report, fans will have to prove they had their second dose at least 14 days before the match to count as fully vaccinated. At the same time, proof of a negative lateral flow test carried out within 48 hours of kick-off time will also be accepted.

The same rules will be applied to Kingsmeadow where the Chelsea women’s team play their games. Stewards will check fans’ status before they enter the stadiums.

The British government is in talks with the Premier League about proposals to introduce a vaccination requirement for matches. It is being discussed whether vaccine passports could be introduced for seated events with a capacity of 20,000 people and over. However, a final decision is yet to be made.
