COVID-19 guidance for your EURO 2020 match
We hope you're excited for your matchday at Parken Stadium, but remember this won't be your usual stadium visit and we want to make sure that it's a safe and comfortable experience for all.
⚠️ All ticket holders aged 15 and over must present their valid corona passport or other documents indicating they are not infected with COVID-19 before they enter Parken Stadium. Please see below for more info.
Let me give you a top tip
Keep in mind international travel to Denmark is currently restricted. Depending on your country of origin, you may not be allowed to enter the country at all. Football matches are not included in the list of essential purposes and no exemptions will be made for UEFA EURO 2020 ticket holders.
Requirements for stadium entry at Parken Stadium
🎟️ Mobile match ticket, ID and face mask
Before you head to the stadium, make sure you have your mobile match ticket, your passport or ID card, as well as your face mask.
(Check out our Matchday checklist for more tips on what to pack!)
🧪 Negative COVID-19 test result, proof of vaccination or certificate of previous infection
To enter Parken Stadium, all ticket holders aged 15 and over must:
- Either provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (as a Danish citizen it will be enough to prove it has been at least 14 days since your first dose of an approved vaccine)
- Or provide a certificate of previous infection
- Or provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test or antigen test (not older than 72 hours upon stadium entry)
Ticket holders with a Danish CPR number
If you have a Danish CPR number, you can show your valid corona passport at the stadium entrance. You're most likely already aware of how to get it up to date. Make sure you have downloaded the app and that you're ready to show it on matchday.
Ticket holders without a Danish CPR number
If you don't have a Danish CPR number, the requirements are the same. You won't be able to use the corona passport app, so you'll need to provide the documents in a different form.
Overall, there are three ways to confirm valid COVID-19 information, whether you have a corona passport app or not:
- Simply show your certificate (in printed form; in Danish, other Scandinavian languages or English) at the entrance and you're good to proceed.
- Any COVID-19 vaccine recognised by the EU is accepted.
- If your vaccine is a two-dose vaccine, you need to have received your second dose.
- A minimum of 14 days must have passed since your second dose.
- For Danish citizens it is enough to show proof of the first dose of vaccination, taken at least 14 days before matchday
- If you have been infected with COVID-19 between two weeks and eight months before your match, you'll have a valid corona passport.
- International fans (without a Danish corona passport) can provide a printed certificate of previous infection at the entrance to the stadium. This should be a positive COVID-19 PCR test result written in Danish, other Scandinavian languages or English.
If you can't provide any of the above, then you need to take a COVID-19 test.
- No need to book an appointment – simply show up at a test centre near you.
- We recommend you get tested the day before your match to avoid any last-minute rush on matchdays.
- If you have a Danish CPR number, make sure to bring your yellow health card and your mobile phone. Remember to wear a face mask when you visit a test centre.
- If you don't have a Danish CPR number, you'll only need to bring your mobile phone and wear a face mask. Staff onsite will take care of the rest.
- Keep in mind your test must not be older than 72 hours when you enter the stadium.
- Simply show your negative test result upon entrance to the stadium (in printed or digital form).
- PCR test results from abroad are also accepted at the stadium entrance but need to be provided in either Danish, other Scandinavian languages or English.
🕐 Entry time slots
To keep everyone save, we have created entry time 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.
Let me give you a top tip
According to current planning, Parken Stadium will be hosting 15,900 fans per match. That's about 45% 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 800 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 Volkswagen 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.

🏟️ Stadium measures
Wearing a face mask is mandatory onsite at all times, except when you are in your dedicated seat or while you're seated to eat or drink. The mask must cover your mouth and nose. We recommend you bring additional masks just in case.
If you're exempt from wearing a mask for medical reasons, please approach one of the supervisors at the stadium entrance.
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.
After the match, make sure you exit through the same entrance you used when arriving at the venue. Please follow the instructions of staff onsite.
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.
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.
