Might cause issues for people passing over season tickets, Covid pass not matching name on seat etc.

I will be astonished if they bother checking the name on the covid pass to the season ticket. You'll probably be able to get in with a Tesco Clubcard as long as there's a QR code on your phone!

Wondering what happens if the App is down and you aren't able to get your covid pass.
Like now for example.

wonder what happens if a player, official, referee or AVFC employee isn't double jabbed.... can they not attend on matchday then?

You can save it in your Apple Wallet and I'm assuming the google version so it is directly on the phone. Or screengrab it and save it in your photos. Of course most people won't think about that before they get to the gates though.

Vaccination Passports imminent according to reports.not sure how they would be able to check 41,000+ Covid Passes at the Gates and even bigger problems at stadiums like Old Trafford.
Yes that would be a problem however it should not be a bigger problem at OT  as I presume the stadium is geared to handle it's capacity like other major stadiums.

The passport  lasts for 30 days so I suggest once you request it on app take a screenshot.

Whitty made a good point that it will move from pandemic to endemic and normalise like other prevalent viruses.

At other events Iíve gone to they have stages to the Ďshowing covid passesí process.

Someone shouting to get your passes ready a little way out,
an outer barrier for showing the passes (pretty cursory - a quick date check - similar to a bag check or pat down in terms of thoroughness)
then going through the actual gate/door/turnstile with your ticket as usual.

Itíll slow things down, but probably not as much as we fear, especially once people get used to having a screenshot.

On the bright side, if it does take people longer to get into the ground, one piece of consistency thus far in the Gerrard era is that the bad half is always the first half, so you'll only potentially be missing a few minutes of 'meh' mediocrity.

Looking at my pass on the NHS app you get the QR code or you can print it off, have a look second option, I prefer the print off version as both contain different details for certain reasons

Thanks will do to save the possible matchday hassle.
My phone turns into nothing more than an expensive paperweight the minute I get into VP anyway.
