After the Government introduced its "Autumn and Winter Plan B" from 15 December, fans going to a Premier League match need to follow new protocols if they wish to get access inside the stadium.
When you arrive at the stadium, be expected to confirm your COVID status as well as a valid NHS COVID pass or a negative NHS COVID test result to the stewards who will be conducting checks outside the grounds.
All clubs are implementing COVID status checks at stadiums and supporters must be able to show a valid NHS COVID Pass, or show an email or text message from NHS Test and Trace confirming you have taken a negative COVID test in the previous 48 hours - or as close to matchday as possible.
If you are unable to provide proof of a COVID Pass, you will be in breach of the conditions of ticket purchase and can expected to be denied entry to the ground.
Before you reach the COVID stewards, have your status and pass ready to show. This will ease your entry to the ground and minimise disruption to the matchday experience for yourself and the other fans seeking to get in.
We ask fans also to follow good public-health behaviours outside the stadiums, sanitising their hands at any available stations and maintain social-distancing when waiting in line to enter the ground.
