Spectators with an 'E' mark on the contact tracing app Al Hosn must take a PCR test 48 hours prior to the event.


Fully vaccinated football fans will be allowed to attend the finals of the UAE President's Cup 2021.

The final will be held on May 16 and will allow spectators at 30 per cent capacity.

"It's the first official event that only vaccine recipients and its clinical trials participants are allowed to attend," said the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) on Tuesday.

Spectators with an 'E' mark on the contact tracing app Al Hosn must take a PCR test 48 hours prior to the event.

"Accordingly, the experience will be evaluated, and the return of fans to the stands will be reconsidered during the next phase of the World Cup and AFC Asian Cup qualifiers," the NCEMA added.

The UAE President's Cup is a professional football tournament that was founded in 1974.
