Newcastle United fans will no longer need a Covid pass to gain entry to St. James' Park.

The Premier League has issued updated guidance following the Government's easing of Plan B restrictions.

With the rise of the Omicron variant over the festive period, football clubs had been asking spectators to provide proof of double vaccination or a negative test.

Now, those conditions will no longer be enforced.

The Premier League has nonetheless urged fans to keep following public health guidance, including wearing face coverings in crowded areas.

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: "Fans have shown fantastic support for the measures in place and we thank them for helping keep each other safe and grounds open at full capacity.

"Despite Government restrictions easing, everyone still has a role to play in making sure people feel safe at our matches.

"We and our clubs urge supporters to continue to do all they can to follow public health guidance to minimise the risk of passing on COVID-19."

The new Premier League guidelines come into force immediately.

Therefore, any Magpies fans attending matches from Tuesday, February 8th's fixture with Everton, will no longer need the Covid pass.
