Poland will allow British football fans who want to support Manchester United at the upcoming 2020/2021 Europa League final match to avoid the mandatory coronavirus quarantine.
This will be if they fulfill the condition of presenting a negative SARS-CoV-2 test.
According to a government regulation that takes effect on Tuesday, fans with tickets to the May 26 game in Gdansk will need to present a negative test. But the test must not be older than 48 hours upon their arrival in Poland.
As a general rule, travelers from non-EU (European Union), countries need to quarantine in Poland for 10 days. But they cannot be freed from quarantine on the basis of a test conducted outside of the EU.
EU citizens, however, can present a negative COVID-19 test conducted in their country and be freed from mandatory quarantine. This rule will apply to Villarreal fans, Manchester United rivals, who will support their team at the Gdansk final.
Poland is gradually re-opening its economy as the number of coronavirus infections is declining and the vaccination campaign progresses.
For the Europa League final, fans will be able to fill up to 25 percent of the Gdansk stadium, which means 9,500 people will be allowed to watch the game on site.
