Crystal Palace shared a safety update on Wednesday ahead of their meeting with Tottenham this weekend, and their social media post had a lot of Eagles fans talking, but not for the right reasons.
Palace confirmed that fans attending Selhurst Park on Saturday must be prepared to provide proof of either a negative lateral flow test within 48 hours of the match or a double vaccination pass.
Where will Palace finish this season?
16th or lower
Spot checks will be conducted by stewards outside of the ground, with the club urging supporters to arrive as early as possible.
Palace suffered a ticketing problem in Patrick Vieira’s first home game in charge against Brentford which left fans still queuing to gain entry prior to kick-off, and this latest update ahead of the second Selhurst Park fixture hasn’t gone down well.
Palace fans react
The Eagles shared the safety news on their official Twitter page on Wednesday. These Palace supporters weren’t happy at the late notice regarding the update, with others also wanting to know more about ticket details and one labelling it as ‘shocking’.
“Easy to distance in the stadium if you don’t let anyone in. Shambles.”
“This is totally shambolic and unacceptable. Exactly how many apps do we have to download to be able to use the product that we have spent £100’s on? This is appalling customer service, absolutely shocking. The game is on Saturday lunchtime, and you’re telling us now!”
“What absolute chaos”
“Send tickets, ridiculous show, sort it out !!”
“No tickets, but as long as you have your facemask, you’ll be fine.”
“Hi guys. I’m a season ticket holder and haven’t received a season ticket or any other instructions for how to get into the stadium. Do we just knock twice or do the secret handshake? What’s the plan??”
