Manchester United Will Conduct COVID-19 Spot-checks Now

Manchester United Will Conduct COVID-19 Spot-checks Now

Beginning with the game against Newcastle on Saturday, Manchester United will be using Covid-19 spot-checks on matchdays at Old Trafford. Among the football news coming out of Old Trafford, Manchester United will conduct COVID-19 spot-checks now at their home stadium.

Spot-checks to find coronavirus strains on the fans entering stadiums to watch matches live at home are not yet mandatory. They are not a prerequisite for crowds’ admission to Old Trafford.

However, now, the club anticipates that they will soon require proof of full vaccination from their stadium-goers. And they are planning on implementing this added, albeit necessary and judicious, measure from Saturday onward.

Meanwhile, from October 1, only full vaccinations will allow fans to see fixtures live in the Premier League, per BBC.

Manchester United Will Conduct COVID-19 Spot-checks Now

Manchester United will accept proof of full vaccination as a green light for fans to enter stadiums. And this proof will be valid possibly from this week itself, from Saturday onward.

Fans over the age of 18 should show proof that they have been doubly vaccinated.

If they do not have two doses yet, then the usual measures to ensure COVID-negativity remain for their access.

In other words, fans must have proof of a negative lateral flow or PCR test from 48 hours before arriving.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced in July that there was a plan to require certification at larger venues. These included every venue from ones where “large crowds gather” to sporting venues with capacities of 20,000 or more.

Actually, Manchester United is the latest club to implement spot-checks for the Premier League’s matchday protocols in the 2021-22 season.

They now state that fans “must be prepared to prove” they have been fully vaccinated. Either that, or they must have had a negative Covid-19 test some time within the 48 hours prior to entry.

Meanwhile, Brighton, Chelsea, and Tottenham have already made security checks mandatory for fans attending games at their stadiums.
