The vaccination pass which was adopted this weekend by the National Assembly, will apply to athletes coming from abroad for a competition in France, this will concern the European Football Cups. The vaccination pass obliges to be vaccinated to access certain places. As soon as it comes into force, which is scheduled for the next few days, it will apply to sports competitions, this is what Roxana Maracineanu, the Minister Delegate for Sports, said on Twitter.
“As soon as the law is promulgated, it will become compulsory to enter the ERP already subject to the health pass (stadium, theater or lounge) for all spectators, practitioners, French or foreign professionals. » could we read in the minister’s tweet. While the newspaper The Parisian had raised the possibility that the health pass would not be required for certain international sporting events such as European Cup matches. This possibility of exemption no longer seems to be on the agenda in view of the Minister’s message. The pass should therefore apply to visiting teams which will therefore have to be vaccinated in order to be able to come and play a Champions League, Europa League or Europa Conference League match in France.
