COVID Checks at Premier League Matches

The Premier League has asked the Football Supporters Association and its member organisations to share some important messaging around COVID certification requirements and public health behaviours. 

The Premier League has published this article to outline the importance of fans being able to provide a COVID pass or alternative proof of double vaccination: It can be found on their website: League updates matchday protocols for fans at matches ( and on Twitter

Key messages are:

•        Only attend a match if you have a valid NHS COVID Pass or can show alternative proof that you have been fully vaccinated or have registered a negative COVID test result in the previous 48 hours, as close to matchday as possible. Tests can be ordered for free here.

•        Be ready with your valid NHS COVID pass, which should be downloaded via the NHS app in advance as the approval process may take several days Link

•        Expect staff to check your COVID certification on entry

•        If you do not comply with the guidance, you may be refused entry or asked to leave the stadium

•        Do not attend a match if you are unwell or there is a risk of transmitting COVID-19.

•        Follow good public health behaviors – wash your hands, take regular COVID-19 tests.

•        Follow the Supporter Code of Conduct.

All clubs will be conducting spot checks and have the authority to refuse entry (this will be at each club’s discretion).  

This information is being shared with all Premier League Supporters Liaison Officers (SLO).  If you have any questions specific to our club’s checking procedures or COVID-19 certification, the Premier League recommend you contact our club’s SLO directly.
