FOOTBALL fans who nabbed tickets for the Glasgow Green fan zone to watch the Euros won't need a Covid test to enter. 

Those lucky enough to grab tickets - which were free and sold out in seconds - will not need to prove they don't have the deadly virus before entering the park.

The Glasgow Green arena is due to run for the 31 days of the delayed tournament from June 11 and will see up to 6000 supporters take in the action. 

Organisers said there would be a "festival atmosphere" with food, drinks and activities as well as screenings of all games.

But despite comments made by Deputy First Minister John Swinney on BBC One Scotland's Sunday Show where he claimed the spot would be "very regulated" and hinted revellers may need to provide a negative test, this is not the case.

A Glasgow Life spokeswoman said: "It is not a requirement for ticket holders to show a negative result from a Covid-19 test to gain access to the Fan Zone or the stadium on match days.

“However in the interest of public health, we would encourage all fans to take a test prior to attending, to help stop the spread of the virus as the country moves out of lockdown.

“Event plans will be continually assessed by partners against epidemiological conditions and Covid measures will continue to be monitored in the run-up to and throughout the tournament to ensure they remain appropriate.”
