  • Arrive at the stadium within your allocated 30-minute time slot.
  • Don’t occupy any other seat than the one on your ticket.
  • Wash and disinfect your hands frequently. You can find sanitiser stations throughout the stadium.

Arriving at the stadium

Entering the stadium will be a little different at UEFA EURO 2020 to what you may be used to.

Each of the 12 venues will have its own health and safety measures and requirements for entry may differ across the host cities.

Requirements for stadium entry at Puskás Aréna:

Before you head to the stadium, make sure you have your mobile match ticket, as well as your face mask. (Check out our Matchday checklist for more tips on what to pack!)

Hungarian fans will be permitted entry into the stadium with proof of COVID-19 vaccination or certificate of previous COVID-19 infection.

International fans will be permitted into the stadium by providing a negative PCR test result (issued within 72 hours of their matchday), certificate of previous COVID-19 infection or proof of vaccination.

Further information on the exact requirements will be made available closer to the tournament.

To keep everyone save, we have created entry slots for every ticket holder. You will have a 30-minute window to arrive at the stadium. These lots have been created so that we can follow social distancing guidelines and we strongly recommend you follow them for a stress-free arrival.

Check back closer to your match to find out more about your allocated entry time slot. Also keep your eyes peeled on your inbox for an email from our ticketing team.

Stadium capacity

According to current planning, Puskás Aréna will be hosting 61,000 fans per match. That's 100% of the stadium capacity.

What we're doing to keep you safe

Our main priority is to deliver a safe UEFA EURO 2020 for everyone, which is why we’re working with the local governments and health authorities to ensure our measures adhere to the public health guidance of the host country.

  • A diligent cleaning regime will be reinforced. Highly frequented touchpoints such as door handles, handrails or counters will be disinfected regularly throughout the matchday. The entire stadium is cleaned on a regular basis before, during and after your visit.
  • Over 900 hand sanitiser units across the stadium will make it easy for everyone to follow recommended hygiene practices.
  • Cashless transactions - all venues will accept card payments, many via contactless payment, to further reduce shared contact.

  • We’re implementing queuing management in front of lifts, concessions and other facilities. Clear floor markings help with direction and movement.
  • Education of staff - our VW Mobility Makers and everyone else working at the venue will have received extensive training to ensure we can deliver a safe and comfortable event according to best practice and government guidelines. This also includes providing all workforce with the necessary protective equipment such as face masks and gloves as required.
  • All mitigation measures will be promoted heavily throughout the stadium so that everyone is aware of the rules.
