Many Everton fans have been left fuming as some news emerged before their game against West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
As per the official website of the Merseyside club, adult supporters attending the match at Goodison Park are now advised to be ready to show proof of vaccination, or a negative lateral flow test.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
Matchday spot-checks will be increased for upcoming fixtures, and fans should only go if they either have a valid NHS COVID Pass, can show valid alternative proof that they have been fully vaccinated, or have registered a negative COVID test in the last 48 hours.
The update has been met with unrest from several Toffees, who have cited that they have not always been checked before when rules have been put in place, and that proof of a negative result could be flawed anyway.

These Blues fumed as the news was shared on Twitter, with a few EFC supporters even going as far as to claim that it is ‘pointless’:
“Pretty pointless when you can just upload a negative result to the government website without taking a test.”
“Commence operation pointless exercise”
“The fact I can just upload a negative result to Gov.UK without even taking the test sort of suggests you’re wasting my time here and going to create ridiculous queues again”
“Surely we should have been ready every home game so far?!? Have you just realised no one has been checking?!?”
“Still won’t get asked”
