Covid Passes Explained


19 November 2021

Following the latest announcement from the Welsh government, all visitors attending fixtures from 11th October 2021 will need to have a ‘Covid Pass’ to attend.  

A Covid Pass is simply either proof of your Vaccination Certificate or proof of a negative Covid lateral flow test. Please note, the paper card that you receive after your vaccination does not count as proof and you will need to provide your Vaccination Certificate as per the below options.

Your ‘Covid Pass’ just need to be shown as you walk through the gates and doesn’t need to be sent in advance. We will also have a Covid testing facility available at each fixture (a small fee may apply). 

In order to ensure a smooth entry for everyone, at busier fixtures, spot checks will be taking place. 

Providing your Covid status is simple and can be demonstrated in a number of ways: 

NHS Covid Pass (proof of vaccination) 

Confirmation of a negative lateral flow test  

Once you’ve taken your Covid test, log your negative result either on the NHS App  or online.  

You’ll then receive a text or email that will need to be shown on entry. Tests must be taken no more than 48 hours before the fixtures.

We will also have a Covid testing facility available at each fixture. There will be a £5 charge should you require a lateral flow test on the day, but it can take up to 30 minutes to process. 

We’d like to thank all of our customers for their support and cooperation. Your safety is our top priority whilst you enjoy every roar and cheer with friends and family.
