Important information for those attending Carabao Cup match

Covid-19 requirements

Supporters attending our home matches at Stamford Bridge and Kingsmeadow this season are required to provide evidence they are at low risk of transmitting Covid-19. This is to increase the safety and comfort of our supporters, players and staff as we host large crowds again. This applies to non-matchday events at Stamford Bridge as well. 

This can be done through proof of full Covid-19 vaccination (with both doses received at least 14 days prior to the match) or proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test (from age 11 and over) carried out within 48 hours of the fixture kicking off.

Genuine medical exemptions from testing/vaccination are accepted by the club on a case by case basis, and testing is only required for supporters aged 11 and over. As well as accepting proof via the NHS Covid pass or an NHS vaccination letter (or US or European equivalent), we also accept test results from any government approved lab, a GP or via proof of self reporting of a Lateral Flow Test result through the UK government’s online portal. 

Supporters will be required to wear masks in all indoor areas of the stadium, including the concourses, except when they are eating or drinking. Masks are not required when seated or walking outside the stadium.

We also strongly encourage the use of hand-washing facilities and hand sanitisers which are located throughout the Bridge.

Please understand that these standards apply to all supporters and that anyone who refuses this process will not be permitted to enter.

Thank you for your help and co-operation in helping to make Stamford Bridge a safer and more enjoyable experience.
