West Ham United are set to trial a sanitising tunnel, with a view to installing the technology at the London Stadium when fans are finally allowed to return to watch games in the future.
The move comes as clubs around the world prepare to welcome fans back to their stadiums, while trying to keep them as safe as possible.
The Hammers are reportedly one of the clubs keen to lead the way when it comes to football returning to a world affected severely by the impact of Covid-19, and could trial a tunnel at their training ground.
If the test at Chadwell Heath is successful, the club would install a tunnel at their home ground as fans return to live games around October.
The tunnel would work in three stages, the first being a facial recognition camera which also records the person’s temperature, before an anti-bacterial spray is released to kill bacteria and viruses.
