Do I need COVID-19 certification (vaccination or negative test) to attend a match?

Covid certification is not a condition of entry. Please read the following for more information and check this page again prior to your next visit.

From Wednesday 15 December, Covid-19 Certification became mandatory for entry into settings where large crowds gather – including unseated indoor events with 500 or more attendees, unseated outdoor events with 4,000 or more attendees and any event with 10,000 or more attendees.

This means fans will need to be prepared to provide evidence of Covid-19 Certification to enter the ground where the attendance will exceed 10,000 seated or 4,000 standing.

The AJ Bell Stadium has capped capacity below the above numbers which means Covid passports are no manitory. However, the stadium will do occasional spot checks in order to trail the copied passport testing process. We hope you support the stadium in this operation.

What counts as Covid-19 certification?

Fans can demonstrate their vaccine status via the NHS Covid Pass on the NHS App. People will be able to demonstrate proof of two vaccine doses via the app. Note that a “booster” jab is not currently a requirement for certification. 

If you don’t have a Smart phone, official paper versions can be used (more below).

Having considered the evidence since the emergence of Omicron, the Government has determined that proof of a negative lateral flow test, taken within the preceding 48 hours, will also be accepted.

How do I get my NHS COVID pass?

To ensure that fans continue watching in-person in a safe manner, it is imperative that all supporters play their part by ensuring they have valid COVID-19 Passes in advance of match day.

The simplest way of obtaining certification is with the COVID Pass through the NHS app or website.

The COVID Pass can be generated on the app following:

  • You have been fully vaccinated over two weeks earlier
  • You have returned a negative COVID test in the previous 48 hours
  • Or you have registered a medical exemption with the NHS
How should I store my online COVID pass?

Additional checks may delay your entry time to the ground so fans are urged to save any online pass to your device – such as an Apple Wallet – so that you can access the pass offline and not rely on 4G or WiFi. 

To add your NHS COVID Pass to the device’s wallet, tap the ‘Add to Apple Wallet’ button within the NHS COVID Pass service.

If you store an offline version of your NHS COVID Pass into your Apple Wallet it will only be valid until the expiry date shown on the COVID Pass. The expiry date will not refresh automatically. This means you will need to store an updated NHS COVID Pass to your Apple Wallet before you next plan to use it if your original COVID Pass has or is due to expire.

I cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons. Will I still be allowed entry? 

The Government has determined that proof of a negative lateral flow test will also be accepted as certification. This should be taken within 48 hours of kick off.

I don’t own a smart phone. How do I prove my COVID-19 status?

You can receive a paper copy of your COVID-19 status. More details are available here.

Please carry  this  with you so you can show your COVID-19 status when attending a match.   

I don’t have the NHS App, how do I get it?

The latest guidance on the NHS app is available here.

Do  I  need to take a PCR test? (No, a PCR test is not...)

No, a PCR test is not necessary to attend matches, but fans are urged not to attend if they are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms.

If you do not have proof of vaccination, you should be able to show you have had a negative lateral flow test result in the 48 hours prior to kick-off.

Where do I get a lateral flow test from?

Lateral flow tests are available for free from your local test centre or pharmacy. You can also order tests here.   

What about people aged under-18? 

Under-18s will not need to certify their COVID status. 

I am  concerned about attending matches. Is it safe?

We are working to ensure the stadium is ‘fan-ready’ so that supporters will be able to return as safely as possible once the season gets underway

As in the 2021 season we are following training ground and matchday protocols that have been designed to reflect the current situation – they are flexible enough to ensure we can take the most appropriate measures if required and most importantly keep everyone as safe as possible.

This includes requiring fans to comply with a Code of Conduct

Supporters should ensure they fully understand these guidelines before attending a match and all fans should continue to follow the latest public health guidance. 

Fans should not attend matches if they are unwell or if there is any risk they can pass on COVID19. 

The RFL and ourselves will continue to follow the latest Government guidance regarding COVID-19 safety protocols. 

What are the entrance requirements?

Ticket holders must agree to follow the conditions set by:

 

The Supporter Code of Conduct sets out COVID-19  regulations and  behaviour s that supporters must follow to help keep everybody safe on a match day.

You will be asked to read and accept the conditions at the point of purchase. If you are booking on behalf of others, you must also ensure they are aware of the regulations and are able to comply with the terms.

Are away supporters allowed at matches? 

Away supporters are permitted to attend matches.

What time should I arrive at the  stadium? 

There may be a process for checking supporters before you enter the stadium.

Searches will be conducted by trained stewards.

Please check in advance to ensure you are aware of any entrance regulations, relating either to permitted items or ticket and personal ID requirements.

Can I bring a bag to the stadium? 

Usual bag conditions will apply though where possible, please try to avoid bringing bags or other items which may add to the time taken to check your items before you can pass safely into the stadium. We advise that bags should be no bigger than A4 size.        

Do I need to wear a face covering? 

In line with Government guidance, all supporters aged 11 and over will be required to wear a face covering when located in indoor areas, other than when eating or drinking, or where exempt. 

Face coverings are advised though not required to be worn by supporters when they are in their allocated seats in the stadium bowl.

What other rules or  guidance  are supporters expected to follow? 

Supporters are asked to:

  • Follow the Supporter Code of Conduct
  • Remember your face covering
  • Wash your hands or use sanitiser regularly
  • Be considerate of others and help to keep everyone safe
  • Only occupy your designated seat
  • Follow one-way systems throughout the stadium and adhere to any other signage
  • Follow any instructions issued to you by stewards or other stadium staff

Are catering services available inside  stadiums?
