Update on supporter requirements for home games

Supporters attending matches at Stamford Bridge and Kingsmeadow should read the below information following the introduction of the Government’s ‘Autumn and Winter Plan B’ and the Premier League confirming requirements for all fans attending Premier League matches.

Fans attending our home matches must continue to provide evidence they are at low risk of transmitting Covid-19, either through proof of full Covid-19 vaccination (with both doses received at least 14 days prior to the match) or proof of a negative PCR or Lateral Flow Test (from age 11 and over) carried out within 48 hours of the fixture kicking off.

In addition, 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, but they are recommended.

Supporters are NOT required to complete a Covid status self-declaration form ahead of Thursday night’s Premier League match against Everton, or ahead of Chelsea Women’s game on Sunday. That addition to the protocol may be introduced for the next Premier League home game against Brighton on 29 December.

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

With the club’s enhanced security and medical screening protocols enforced, we encourage all supporters to arrive at the stadium in good time to avoid any potential delays upon entry.

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.
