COVID-19 guidance for your EURO 2020 match

We hope you're excited for your matchday at Wembley Stadium, but remember this won't be your usual stadium visit and we want to make sure this is a safe and comfortable experience for all.

⚠️ All ticket holders aged 11 and older must present evidence that they are at a low-risk of transmitting COVID-19 to enter Wembley Stadium. Failure to do so will mean you’re unable to attend the match. Please see below for more info.

Requirements for stadium entry

🎟️ Mobile match ticket, ID and face covering

Before you head to the stadium, make sure you have your mobile match ticket, your ID (this should be the same as the identification you provided in the ticketing system), as well as your face covering.

(Check out our Matchday checklist for more tips on what to pack!)

🧪 Negative Lateral Flow Test or proof of full vaccination

The following requirements apply for all group matches (13 June, 18 June and 22 June) at Wembley Stadium. Procedures for the remaining matches may change and will be confirmed shortly.

All ticket holders aged 11 and older must show evidence of one of the following to be allowed entry to Wembley Stadium:

For ticket holders based in the UK:

  • Proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test (LFT), reported and demonstrated via a text message or email from NHS Test and Trace. This can be on your device (including a screenshot) or a printout. The test needs to be taken within 48 hours of the time stadium gates open (meaning three hours before match kick-off).
  • Or proof of full vaccination - both doses received at least 14 days prior to the match (demonstrated via the NHS App or via the Scottish or Welsh vaccination record services).


For ticket holders based elsewhere:

  • Proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test (LFT), reported and demonstrated via a text message or email. The test needs to be taken within 48 hours of the time stadium gates open (meaning three hours before match kick-off).
  • Any other test results, e.g. a PCR test result from a private company, will not be accepted and entry will be denied.
  • The test needs to be taken within 48 hours of the time gates open (meaning three hours before kick-off).
  • All tests will be self-administered.
  • The results of the Lateral Flow Tests need to be uploaded using the NHS self-report tool, whether you are a UK resident or a ticket holder from abroad.
  • You must show proof of your negative test result (text message or email from NHS Test and Trace) upon entry to the stadium.
  • The Lateral Flow Tests for stadium entry are free of charge.

Options available for ticket holders:

1️⃣ At Home testing (Recommended)

UK residents (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) can order Lateral Flow Tests for home delivery online.

2️⃣ Asymptomatic Testing Site (ATS) testing

Alternatively, you can go to an ATS to take your test. Find a test site on this website. Apply filters under the heading “test site for people without symptoms”.

If you’re an international ticket holder and unsure which ATS to pick, we’ve taken the time to create a list of recommended sites:

3️⃣ Lateral Flow Test - Collect

Another option is to visit a Test Collect Site or pharmacy to collect your Lateral Flow Tests for self-testing.

Remember if you’re an international ticket holder who is required to quarantine, you can only visit an ATS site, Test Collect Site or pharmacy once you’ve completed your quarantine period.

For further details on how to upload your Lateral Flow Test result for international ticket holders, please see here.

If you live in England, you can see your vaccination status via the NHS App.

Please note the ‘NHS App’ is different to the ‘NHS COVID-19’ app.

  • If you have been vaccinated against COVID-19, you can show your certification on the NHS app when entering the stadium.
  • Ticket holders are required to have had both vaccine doses at least 14 days prior to attending their match.
  • From 10 June – In the NHS App, select the “Share your COVID-19 status service” on the homepage, then select "Attending an event as part of a trial? Use the test service.” This is currently a test (beta) service and you will be required to enter the passcode ‘euros’ (not case sensitive) in the app.
  • In order to use the NHS App you must be registered with a GP in England and over 16 years of age.
  • Keep in mind you will need to download and register for the NHS App, prove your identity and check your vaccination status BEFORE travelling to Wembley Stadium. This process may take up to seven days so, although on average this is completed in a quicker time frame, we recommend you do this as soon as possible before attending the match.
  • You need to check if your vaccination data is correct in the NHS App. If you need help, you can check the official website for detailed instructions.
  • A step by step guide on how to find your ‘COVID-19 event status’ within the app from 10 June is available.

If you live in Scotland, you can obtain your vaccination status on this website.

If you live in Wales, you can request your vaccination status by following these instructions. It can take up to ten working days for a certificate to arrive.

At this stage, there is no process for residents of Northern Ireland to evidence their status.

Check our FAQs below for additional information.

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

A message from UK government

EURO 2020 matches being played at Wembley Stadium on 13 June and 18 June will be part of the UK Government’s ongoing Events Research Programme. As well as requiring attendees to meet the conditions above, ventilation and behavioural studies will also be conducted at these events. The UK government may ask UEFA to contact ticket holders after the event to complete a survey and volunteer to take part in an interview about their experience.

While steps are being taken to minimise risk of infection from COVID-19, attendance at this event is at your own risk. It is your responsibility to decide whether or not it is appropriate for you to attend this event. This decision should be based upon your own health status and susceptibility to infection, and that of members of your family, social bubble or, where applicable, your support bubble, together with an assessment of your own attitude to the potential risks.

Please refer to the UEFA Ticketing Terms and Conditions and the UEFA Ticketing FAQs on the conditions for transferring tickets.

For details on Data Privacy please see here.

Stadium capacity

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.

Let me give you a top tip

If you’re unsure about something our UEFA EURO 2020 volunteers, the Volkswagen Mobility Makers, are there to help. They will have info points throughout Wembley Stadium.
