Sky Sports reports that Prenetics has developed a ‘digital health passport’ that ties history testing to a cell phone for a person.

Fans could enter venues by scanning a QR Code on their device if they have received a recent negative test.

The Premier League is confident enough that such a scheme would allow socially dissociated audiences to watch next season’s games.

However, how often spectators will need to be screened-and how close to a game-would rely on recommendations from the authorities.

Avi Lasarow, Prenetics’ chief executive, told Sky Sports News: “Currently, health passports are being used with the Premier League and the ECB to link the biometrics of an individual to a COVID test result – enabling players and support staff to access various areas.”

“It’s certainly going to be a way forward where fans will attach their own test results to a health passport to allow them entry to a stadium.”

“The test outcome of a passenger may be connected to their biometrics, which links to the ticket they purchase which in effect links to the access control. When purchasing a flight, airlines are looking at a similar system.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
