The safety of everyone attending fixtures at Brentford Community Stadium is of the utmost importance and we want fans to be ready in case we are required by the government or Premier League to move to full Covid-19 certification.
Supporters under the age of 18 will not be required to show any Covid-19 status and adult supporters will be able to provide the following as evidence:
- NHS Covid Pass via the NHS App, in your Apple wallet, PDF version or letter
- NHS Covid vaccination card (blue card)*
- Negative Covid-19 lateral flow test result within the last 48 hours (either an email or text message)
- Antibody test evidence in the NHS App
- EU digital Covid certificate
*Our experience to date has shown that some fans were unable to access the NHS Covid Pass on their phones on matchdays so we would recommend bringing along your NHS Covid vaccination blue card as the easiest way to demonstrate that you have received both vaccinations.
At this point, the Club does not intend to (and are not required to) turn fans away if they are unable to show evidence of their Covid-19 status. However, this may be a requirement in the future if mandated by either the Government or Premier League.
Please do support the matchday staff who are undertaking these spot checks – these checks are a Premier League requirement and designed to help ensure the safety of our fans and enable us to keep our stadium open for all fans going forward.
While we will endeavour to manage this process as efficiently as possible, it will inevitably lead to a slightly longer entry time for some supporters. We strongly recommend fans arrive early given these additional checks.
Finally, please do also follow other guidance contained in the Covid-19 Supporter Code of Conduct which has recently been updated, including wearing face coverings in indoor spaces (unless exempt or while eating and drinking).
If you have any further queries on this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bear in mind that the Club does not have any leeway on Government/Premier League guidelines so it is not something that we can take a Club-specific approach on.
We would like to remind supporters that there is significant travel disruption on Saturday 16 October, when Brentford host Chelsea. Planning to get to the area early is more important than ever. Please leave plenty of time to arrive on Saturday to avoid the risk of missing kick-off. Read more here.
