FANS COULD be banned from stadiums in the future if they fail a Covid spot check.
Manchester United will carry out the spot-checks on supporters going to their home game against Newcastle at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The Red Devils welcome Toon to the Theatre of Dreams with Cristiano Ronaldo set to make his second debut for the club.
However, fans attending that are over 18 will be asked to show a certificate to prove that they have either been double-jabbed or had a negative test within 48 hours of the game.
Nobody who fails to provide either will be barred from attending the game.
But it is expected to become a mandatory requirement to have one or the other in the future.
United are doing it as a trial.
That is so fans can get used to it before it becomes a requirement.
