How fans entering Fratton Park might be put to the test over Covid

Pompey CEO Andy Cullen says the possibility of fans entering Fratton Park needing to prove they have had two Covid vaccines or have taken a negative test remains on the table.
And he has warned it could bring chaos to stadiums as supporters are asked to prove they are allowed in. He stressed that dialogue was continuing as clubs readied themselves for what rules might be put in place.
Cullen told The News: 'The door still hasn’t closed on vaccination passports. Where we are is it’s still very much part of the government’s plan B situation.
‘In the event the government decide we’re moving to plan B, it means football at any stadium with more than 10,000 supporters will need to be double vaccinated or have a negative test to enter the stadium.
‘Let’s say something happened now, the government could introduce that for our game at Rotherham and you’d need to show proof of vaccination. What we don’t know yet and what the Football League don’t know yet, is it going to be a check on everybody?
‘You could imagine the chaos that might cause, in terms of getting people into the stadium. Is it going to be random checks and you check every sixth person, and they have to show proof?
'There’s a lot of questions still to be discussed on that run, and that is dialogue which is ongoing.’
