    England fans at Middlesbrough's Riverside StadiumSocially distanced fans watched England's friendlies against Romania and Austria at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium

    Fans attending England's Euro 2020 group games at Wembley Stadium will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test before entry.

    Uefa says UK-based ticket holders aged 11 or over can show proof of full vaccination, with both doses received at least 14 days before the match.

    Those not fully vaccinated must show proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within the previous 48 hours.

    England play Croatia in their opening group game on Sunday.

    Ticket holders for matches taking place at Hampden Park will not be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test.

    Fans who live in England attending games at Wembley can show their vaccination status via the NHS app.

    Uefa says its "main priority" is to deliver a safe tournament, and is "working with the local governments and health authorities to ensure measures adhere to the public health guidance of the host country".

    Wembley and Hampden Park are among 11 venues across Europe hosting Euro 2020 games. The others are in Rome, Munich, Baku, St Petersburg, Budapest, Seville, Bucharest, Amsterdam and Copenhagen.

    Wembley will host a maximum of 22,500 fans – 25% of its capacity – for England's Group D fixtures against Croatia, Scotland and the Czech Republic.

    The stadium is also due to host a last-16 tie as well as both semi-finals and the final.

      So these people will need to show negative tests, before hopping on a tube train full of god knows what. Meanwhile the total UK daily death number hovers around 5, whilst 1000+ people on average die of other natural causes, a lot caused by obesity/smoking etc… absolutely farcical this whole situation.380106

      Regardless of how you feel about the vaccine as long as the lateral flow test is an option I don’t see a problem. That said considering that you can still transmit the virus after vaccination though (albeit reduced) it seems strange that testing isn’t the key criteria.21661

      I’m relieved that we are turning into New China, that place looks so good with so many happy citizens, I mean we’re already financially in their pocket and they’ll also be building our new power stations so why not go all out. People be only too happy to be told what to do and not think about anything uncomfortable. Enjoy Wembley suckers.18864

      As someone who has had both doses a while ago, this seems very unfair on the younger generations. The vaccine passport was ‘ruled out’ by the powers that be a while ago, so do yet another U turn?11640

      I’m vaxed (both doses), but this is wrong and discriminatory. Slowly we have allowed politicians to tell us when & where we can travel, who we can see & where, what rules we must follow to watch live events. Forget conspiracies, anti vax rubbish – but it is clear we have given up “essential liberty for a little temporary safety” and I’m not happy about that. What was it that Ben Franklin said?10637

      Looks like watching TV coverage at home is still allowed with testing or vaccine passports. But the sheeple will go and even post their selfies (like the mask selfies, NHS rainbow frames etc.). I’m staying at home, avoiding stress and saving money.12262

      Absolute load of nonsense. Take a test 48 hours beforehand, and then spend most of the intervening time in a pub, indoors, with groups of people before going to an outdoor socially distanced stadium. Mad.484
