Ticket holders for the Royal London International (ODI) between England and Pakistan have now been notified by email.
And with Edgbaston able to accommodate around 19,000 spectators each day, 80 per cent of total stadium capacity, all ticket purchasers who still wish to attend have retained their tickets following the opt-out window.
This match is taking place as part of the government’s Events Research Programme. The programme is conducting scientific research studies to gather the evidence that will inform how crowds can be returned to live events as safely as possible.
As ticket holders prepare for their visit to Edgbaston, here is what you now need to do next:
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 within 24 hours of arrival; 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.
Failure to provide either a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test result or proof of both vaccinations will mean entry to the venue is refused.
If you have had both vaccinations, you can show proof of this via the NHS COVID Pass which is available within the NHS App. To get information on the NHS COVID Pass and how you can have it ready in time for your visit, please click here.
Lateral Flow Test
If you are yet to have both vaccinations, you will be able to enter by showing a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test result.
Attendees need to order their own home test kit which can be done online for free via the gov.uk website. Once you’ve taken the test within 24 hours of the match, you can upload your result to get a confirmation SMS or email which you can show on entry.
