Your daughter will therefore need to have a health pass to start playing football. Being a minor, however, she will not be affected by the obligation until September 30, like young players who are between 12 and 17 years old. Children under 12 are exempted by the decision.

Parents, like supervisors, are also mentioned in the Federation’s press release. You will therefore also need to bring a pass, “from the first training sessions and matches of the season” in the event that you wish to go to the stand.


What about professional football?

Spectators wishing to attend a match – Ligue 1 or Ligue 2 for example – must already present a health pass to access the stands. Professional players are also affected by this decision, which requires proof of a complete vaccination schedule, a negative PCR or antigen test or proof of recovery from Covid of less than 6 months.
