It comes as the Government forges ahead with the idea, despite a growing rebellion from MPs.

The Telegraph reports that new details of around a dozen pilot schemes will be announced in the coming days.

The FA Cup final, an FA Cup semi-final, the League Cup final and the World Snooker Championship are taking part, with the Brit Awards also in discussions.

Those heading to any of the huge events will be asked to take a Covid test to gain entry, as well as another after attending.

It’s hoped the plans will allow experts to track the spread of the virus.

And Government sources told the publication that Covid passports – certificates showing whether attendees have been vaccinated or tested for antibodies – will feature.

The events will run throughout April and May.

It’s understood officials want enough information from the tests to see if they can reopen large events from as early as mid-June.
