DATE: 8th September 2021
In the information vacuum around proposed “Covid Passports” The Scottish Football Supporters Association (SFSA) polled fans on the proposed introduction of a Vaccine Passport for stadiums hosting over 10,000 fans.
Nearly 900 responded.
The findings mirror general public opinion on the subject and show a complex set of circumstances that have emerged from the Covid crisis.
The key findings are as follows:-
Stuart Murphy CEO of the SFSA said, “We believed that it was important to ask football supporters about this important issue to ensure that their voices were heard before this matter is debated in Parliament. This is without doubt a challenging and complex set of circumstances where public health and wellbeing of our citizens is to the forefront of discussions. We believe that any issue of national importance to our game should allow for engagement with its key stakeholders which is why we proceeded with this research. In this instance these is no universal preferred outcome. With many fans feeling that this was a Hobsons choice scenario where there was no easy solution that would allow more fans into grounds without making extra demands on them. There was also a small minority of fans who objected to the overall concept of Vaccine Passports and their wider use.
