The UK Government has announced that its ‘COVID-19 Autumn and Winter Plan B’ will now be implemented.
This means any venue with a capacity of at least 10,000 must now ensure attendees have COVID certification in the form of a valid COVID Pass or proof (text/email confirmation) of a negative lateral flow/PCR test taken within 48 hours of the fixture.
Under these new measures, we are required by UK Government to ensure that:
- All match attendees aged 18 and over declare their COVID status before attending Emirates Stadium
- All match attendees aged 18 and over must bring a valid COVID Pass or proof of a negative lateral flow/PCR test taken within 48 hours before the fixture to Emirates Stadium, and be prepared to show it when asked
- All match attendees who are unable to show a valid COVID Pass (provided they do not have an exemption pass) or proof of a negative lateral flow/PCR test are refused entry to Emirates Stadium
If you are a season-ticket holder or if you have purchased a ticket for a game at Emirates Stadium, in line with Premier League requirements, you must submit a declaration of your COVID status before attending the fixture.
This will be sent to you in a separate email prior to the game and must be submitted prior to three hours before kick-off.
By making this declaration, you agree to bring a valid COVID Pass or proof of a negative lateral flow/PCR test taken within 48 hours before the fixture when attending a game at Emirates Stadium. In line with Premier League requirements, spot-checks will also increase significantly on a matchday.
Fans who are unable to show a valid COVID Pass, negative lateral flow/PCR test or an exemption pass on request will be denied entry to the stadium.
