⚠️ COVID-19 wristband

❗ You will only be allowed to enter Puskás Aréna if you present a COVID-19 wristband together with your match ticket.

When can I get my wristband?

You’ll need to pick up your wristband on your matchday or the day before*.

We highly recommend you collect it as early as possible, ideally on the day before your match, to avoid the last-minute rush on matchdays.

Please see below for wristband point locations.

*Spectators in a wheelchair do not need to pick up their wristband in advance. They can collect their wristband in the disabled parking area on matchday, but still need to provide the documents outlined in “How do I get my wristband?”

How do I get my wristband?

First of all, you need to show your ID card or your passport to collect your wristband. No other forms of ID will be accepted.

In addition, the following documentation is required:

Hungarian fans (meaning Hungarian citizens):

  • You’ll need to present your Hungarian Immunity Card or show proof of your immunity in the official EESZT app (Download iOS / Android).
  • Ticket holders under 18 are exempt from the wristband obligation, although they can only enter the stadium with another Hungarian citizen over 18 who has a wristband. Please be ready to show valid proof of age, e.g. ID, passport, driver’s licence, or student card.
  • Ticket holders between 16 and 18 years who have the immunity card (or can show proof of their immunity in the Immunity Certificate app) can pick up their own wristband and can enter the stadium on their own.

International fans:

You will need to present:

  • Either a negative COVID-19 PCR test result which is not older than 72 hours by the time of kick-off
  • Or proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (only if reciprocal agreement with Hungary is in place - please see below for more detail)

International ticket holders under 18 also require a wristband. They will only be allowed to enter Puskás Aréna when accompanied by an adult.

Negative COVID-19 PCR test result:

Only printed test results in Hungarian or English are accepted.

If you need to take a COVID-19 PCR test, two test buses will be available to spectators on the north side of the stadium (at Stefánia Road and Ifjúság Street corner). You will receive the result of your test in English and in Hungarian via e-mail within 24 hours after the testing. To do a PCR-test, you do not need to pre-register. You only need to present your passport or ID.

⚠️ COVID-19 wristbands questions

Can I collect a wristband on behalf of other people, e.g. my friends or family, if I show their certifications?

No. Everybody must pick up their own wristband personally.

I have tickets for more than one match in Budapest. Can I collect all my wristbands at one time?

No. There are different wristbands for each match in Budapest. You have to pick them up before each match separately.

What if I forget to pick up my wristband?

If you forget your wristband, you cannot enter the stadium. You can enter the stadium only if you have your match ticket AND your wristband together.

What if I lose or damage my wristband after picking it up?

Wristbands cannot be replaced! Without your wristband, you won’t be allowed inside the stadium. Please make sure your wristband fits well when you receive it and let staff at the Wristband Points know immediately if something is not quite right. If your wristband is damaged you’ll have to go back to the wristband point where you initially collected it and return your old wristband to receive a new one.

Is the wristband waterproof?

Unfortunately the wristbands are not fully waterproof, so it's best to avoid a thermal bath with your wristband on.

Do I need to print my vaccination certificate or negative PCR test result?

Yes, you have to print it and bring the documents to the wristband point.

I am flying to Budapest for my matchday. Can I pick up my wristband at the airport?

Yes, you can pick up your wristband on your matchday and also the day before your matchday.

🧳 General / travel-related questions

What do I need to consider if I travel from abroad to attend a EURO 2020 match?

If you’re travelling from abroad, remember you will have to comply with the border entry restrictions and requirements enforced in Hungary at the time, including proof that you have tested negative for COVID-19.

Rules that are in place now may change closer to the tournament.

We encourage you to take those restrictions and requirements into consideration when deciding whether to return your tickets or keep them.

Check out our "Travel and transport" page for more information.

A specific website has been set up for spectators in Budapest which will be live in the coming weeks.

How many fans will be allowed inside the stadium?

This will differ across the 11 UEFA EURO 2020 venues, based on the local health regulations. At Puskás Aréna in Budapest, 61,000 will be allowed inside the match, corresponding to 100% of the stadium capacity.

🎟️ Tickets

I have a question about my EURO 2020 match ticket.

For any questions about your match ticket, please visit the Ticket FAQs.

🏟️ Stadium measures

Are there any changes to the entry and exit procedure? How much time is it going to take?

Dedicated entry time slots will be in place that indicate the time you should arrive at your entrance for a stress-free arrival. Be sure to check which entry time slot you've been assigned so you can plan your journey to the stadium accordingly. This means you may need to travel to the stadium earlier than you're used to.

Can I bring my own hand sanitiser?

There will be plenty of hand sanitiser units throughout the stadium, but you can bring your own if you prefer. Note that the bottle should not be larger than 50ml.

How will you be enforcing the health & hygiene measures? What happens if I don’t follow them?

Staff onsite will remind you and guide you through the measures in place.

Any infringement of Code of Conduct may result in denial of access to the stadium, removal from the Stadium and/or further legal action, at the discretion of UEFA.

If you suspect that someone is not respecting the Spectators Code of Conduct, and you believe you are at risk, please inform a steward, volunteer, or another member of staff.
