What are the testing requirements?

25 May 2021

By attending the fixture, you consent to taking part in COVID-19 testing, as part of the ERP and this takes the form of two testing methods.

Firstly, all spectators must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 NHS Rapid Lateral Flow Test on entry (via email or SMS). Please order your home test kit via the gov.uk website. The negative test must be conducted within 24 hours of the day you are attending.

Failure to provide a negative NHS Rapid Lateral Flow Test result will mean entry to the venue is refused.

Secondly, to aid the research, you are also requested to undertake a PCR at home test as close as possible to the event day and again five days after attendance at the event. Using the home address information provided in the Consent Form all for attendees, you will be sent a home testing kit directly which will contain two PCR tests.

The PCR test is not mandatory for entry, but helps support the ERP research.

Full details about the PCR test will be sent to you in the post.
