I don't think that they will be mandatory. If you choose not to have one, you stay in quarantine until the virus is deemed eradicated (which could be years!). You may need to carry a vaccination card, or have the like on your phone. If challenged by police when in a public place, no vaccination = jail. It's not mandatory, you could stay at home instead.
But you really couldn't allow unvaccinated people into a football ground, for instance. Whether an antibody test is the equivalent of a vaccination is another issue.
The conclusion from that is that stadiums will have to remain empty until vaccination certificates are available. The seats are so crammed together that I don't see any practical way of opening them under social distancing rules. Even if only every third seat can be used, the rows in front would have to be empty. And getting in and out of the stadium is problematic, not to mention the toilets.
