Will spectators require any form of testing or COVID verification in order to enter the venue?

28 June 2021

As this fixture is part of the government’s Events Research Programme (ERP), admission to the match will be subject to providing evidence of your COVID-19 Status. This can be done by either:

  • A negative NHS Lateral Flow Test result conducted and recorded within 24 hours of arrival (applies to all spectators aged 11 and over) via a text message or email from NHS Test and Trace or via the NHS App; or
  • Proof you have had both vaccinations (first and second dose), with the second dose administered more than 14 days prior to attending the fixture.

The NHS COVID Pass is available within the NHS App and is the government’s preferred method for demonstrating your Covid status at ERP events as it is helping them to test their processes for the return of large crowds.

To get information on the NHS COVID Pass and how you can have it ready in time for your visit, please follow the link here.

If for any reason you can’t show proof via the NHS App, you can show a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test result.
