Update on Covid requirements for supporters attending matches

With the Government’s easing of Covid-19 ‘Autumn and Winter Plan B’ restrictions and an announcement by the Premier League today, Chelsea Football Club can confirm that from Thursday onwards, Covid passes will no longer be required for fans attending our games at Stamford Bridge and Kingsmeadow.

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

Please note: The easing of restrictions does not apply to tonight’s Chelsea FC Women’s match against West Ham United at Kingsmeadow.

This is in line with the Premier League confirming Covid passes have stopped being a condition of entry at all Premier League matches. The Premier League and clubs will continue to urge fans to follow public health guidance to keep each other safe on a matchday.

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.
