Chelsea Women v Leicester City Women preview: Vitality Women’s FA Cup kick-off time, how to follow and more!

Covid-19 advice

With the Government’s easing of Covid-19 ‘Autumn and Winter Plan B’ restrictions on 27 January, Chelsea Football Club confirmed that Covid passes are no longer required for fans attending our games at Stamford Bridge and Kingsmeadow.

Neither proof of Covid-19 vaccination nor a negative Lateral Flow Test need to be shown.

Although supporters attending our home matches will no longer be required to provide evidence they are at low risk of transmitting Covid-19, it is vital they continue to do all they can to minimise the risk of passing on the virus.

Supporters must not attend matches if they have any Covid-type symptoms or there is a risk of passing on Covid-19.

There are some simple ways fans can help keep each other safe on a matchday:

•Wear face coverings in indoor and crowded areas, including the concourses, except when eating or drinking.
•Continue to regularly use hand-washing facilities and hand sanitisers which are located throughout.
•If possible, take a Covid-19 test on a matchday to check there is no risk of passing on the virus.
•The best way to protect yourself and others from Covid-19 is to get vaccinated.

The form

The Blues are unbeaten so far in 2022, scoring nine goals in our last five outings. Most recently we were held to goalless draw against Arsenal at Kingsmeadow in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.

Leicester, meanwhile, go into the fixture having struck fine form just before the international break. The Foxes have won their last three competitive games back-to-back, running out as winners against Tottenham Hotspur, Birmingham City and West Ham United, scoring eight goals in total.
