Supporters attending Premier League matches will no longer be required to provide Covid passes when attending league fixtures, it has been confirmed.

Following the government's relaxion of Covid-related regulations, the League have followed suit by amending and updating their requirements.

However they urge fans to remain cautious and wear face masks inside stadia, if possible.

"In line with the latest Government guidance, Covid passes will no longer be enforced as a condition of entry to a Premier League match," read a statement published on the League's website on Tuesday.

"The Premier League and clubs will continue to urge fans to follow public health guidance to keep each other safe on a matchday, including wearing face coverings when indoors or in crowded areas."

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters added: "Fans have shown fantastic support for the measures in place and we thank them for helping keep each other safe and grounds open at full capacity.

"Despite Government restrictions easing, everyone still has a role to play in making sure people feel safe at our matches. We and our clubs urge supporters to continue to do all they can to follow public health guidance to minimise the risk of passing on Covid."

The new matchday protocols for fans will come into effect immediately, ahead of the next round of Premier League fixtures beginning Saturday, 5 February.
