- Story Text: UK-based supporters attending European Championship group games at Wembley can be admitted with proof of a second COVID-19 vaccine dose more than two weeks before the match, European soccer's governing body UEFA said on Tuesday (June 8).
The announcement offers an alternative to the existing requirement of a negative COVID-19 test.
However, other ticket holders from elsewhere must still show evidence of a negative Lateral Flow Test (LFT) taken within 48 hours before gates open, UEFA said on its website.
The requirements are for fans aged 11 or older.
England start their campaign against Croatia in the Group D opener on Sunday before they face Scotland on June 18 and the Czech Republic on June 22, with Wembley holding 22,500 fans for the group stage games.
