Fans attending sporting events in Italy from December 6 will need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as part of new measures brought in to limit the spread of the virus.

Fans will be required to present a so-called Super Green Pass to prove that they are vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19. The rule is set to be in place until January 15 and this may be extended.

Spectators are currently able to attend sporting events if they are not vaccinated – as long as they show proof of a negative COVID-19 test. The new rule means that only vaccinated people can attend stadiums, with the measure also applying to concerts, indoor bars and restaurants.

Other places covered by the Super Green Pass include cinemas, theatres, gyms and ski lifts. Italy registered 12,448 new COVID-19 infections on Wednesday, up from 10,047 on Tuesday.
