"The game this weekend is a big one for the team. We missed out on that last year, it's the one everyone gets excited for."If [showing a Covid pass] means we can get back into the stadiums full time then I'm not bothered by the decision.

"I think it's a case of better safe than sorry. It helps the bigger picture really and helps get everything back to normal."What is a Covid pass and how do I get one?But Mr Davies, who also hosts the Swans Cast supporters podcast, feared it could put others off attending.

"I think there's been a bit of a mixed reaction," he said. "I understand the frustration for those who chose not to have the vaccine."There's a little bit more effort involved there. They have to test proving they're negative to get in and that's a little bit more effort. Some people will be happy just to stay at home, especially if it's on TV."

He said some people had viewed the rule as an "extra control on society"."I've not really heard anyone saying 'this is going to make me feel safer and now I'm happy to go,' but I've definitely seen some that are saying 'I don't want to go while this is a rule, I won't go back, refund my season ticket'. That sort of thing.

"It's a different way of living and I understand some people are not going to be able to adjust as easily as others, so it could definitely have an impact [on attendances]."First day of Covid passes in WalesFellow Swansea fan Cath Dyer said she was hopeful most fans would get behind the new requirements.

"It's got to be done, the legislation has been passed, so we've got to follow Welsh government rules," she said."People, hopefully, will feel a bit safer knowing either that they've either been double jabbed or had a lateral flow test.

"Safety is the top priority and that's what the club are working towards."The club wants everything to run as smoothly as possible, because at the end of the day, everybody wants to get into the ground to get all the excitement, the build-up, ready for the game."

"The club was proactive before everything started," she said."They gave us plenty of warning to get ready before everything came into effect. Everybody knows they have to have their passports, passports will be checked."It's a 12 o'clock kick-off on Sunday, but the turnstiles will be open at 10 o'clock to give time for everybody to get in with their passports."

Will fans miss kick-off?But Mr Davies said he was worried some might not have got the message, which could affect what kind of reception the passes get."It might have an impact on how long it takes you to get into the stadium, how early you've got to go down", he said.

"That will be interesting, to see how many people miss kick-off, and to see if their reaction to the rules then might change after that."The club has actually communicated about this and said to bear it in mind and to factor that in to your timings and come down a bit earlier, but not everyone is going to see that.

"I'm not concerned because I'd make sure I account for that, but I can completely understand sometimes you might just get caught out."
