To help get fans back into stadiums, the English Premier League is looking at “clinical passports” according to chief executive Richard Masters.

Right before the Coronavirus pandemic, the football world runs smoothly and as expected since its establishment. None, including I, ever thought that a pandemic would strike and bring a complete change to the world.

Currently, we run in a time where we have to adapt to the “new environment”. In football after the immediate suspension, it kicked off again in June and completed the 2019/20 campaign without supporters.

According to the chief executive, Richard Masters, the Premier League “was willing to see how we can support the development of clinical passports”-an app-based system that looks at all symptoms and other COVID-19 contributing factors”.

He added the Premier League had a club working group liaising with the Sports Grounds Safety Authority and medical experts looking at “practical solutions” for the return of supporters.

“Wide-ranging fan consultation” was also taking place and their attendance at games would help provide a “boost to the whole game’s economic viability in these challenging times”.

“We are prepared to help lead football through trials of what is possible, investing in technology and best-practice steps to reduce risk and make the return of fans to grounds viable”. Added Masters.

“Test and trace will provide crucial support for getting fans back into the stands. We will urge supporters to be responsible and engage with this program, helping to make football environments as safe as possible”.

“We are considering all areas of a match day, from ticketing solutions, stadium seating allocation configuration and timed entries, to temperature checks and in-seat food and drink service for fans”.

“We will work with local authorities and clubs to seek solutions to local transport challenges such as introducing additional car parking and secure bicycle spaces and implementing park-and-walk schemes”.

The 2020-21 season is scheduled to start on September 12th and Professor James Calder recently explained that sports events are highly unlikely to have full capacity crowds this year.

He added that whole of the 2020/21 football season in England could be played in front of reduced capacities and crowd sizes could be further impacted if chanting is proven to heighten transmission risk.
