(Reuters) - Pandemic-driven limitations on the number of spectators allowed into French stadiums will be lifted when the Ligue 1 season resumes, though fans will need to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative PCR test, the French sports minister said on Tuesday.
"We are returning to a normal gauge. But it will be necessary to have a health pass when entering a stadium. This is the condition to return to normal," Roxana Maracineanu told reporters, referring to proof of vaccination or a PCR test.
The Ligue 1 season resumes on Aug. 8.
