Portsmouth Football Club continue to follow UK government guidance regarding large scale events of 10,000 or more. This regulation came into force on Wednesday, December 15 2021.

As of December 15 2021, anyone over the age of 18 attending Fratton Park will either have to provide a valid Covid Pass or negative lateral flow test result that was taken within 48 hours of the scheduled kick-off.

Supporters are advised to arrive earlier to allow time for their Covid status to be checked prior to entry through the checkpoints.

The club will provide provision to undertake a lateral flow test on site. However, it is strongly recommended that home tests are conducted to avoid any further delays at the entry points.

It should be noted that it is impossible for the club to eliminate the risk of Covid-19. Therefore, supporters are responsible for deciding whether or not they should attend the event.

In order to assist us in delivering a safe matchday environment, supporters are expected to behave in a safe and responsible manner.

Face coverings are to be worn in all indoor areas, which include the concourses and toilet areas, unless eating or drinking. We strongly advise the use of face coverings at point of entry and in all hospitality areas.
