Supporters attending Leicester City’s Premier League fixture with Manchester City on Saturday 11 September are advised that COVID-19 certification spot checks will be in place at entry points as part of the Premier League working with DCMS to maintain full capacity crowds at football, and in line with the Club’s new Supporter Code of Conduct

To ensure the safety of everyone in attendance and to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission, the spot checks, which are part of new Premier League protocols, will ask everyone over the age of 18 to confirm their COVID-19 status by:

- Demonstrating their COVID-19 Pass via the NHS App, PDF or NHS letter;
- Showing proof of a negative lateral flow or PCR test result from within the previous 48 hours; or 
- Declaring an exemption from COVID-19 vaccinations and/or testing.

The spot check rules apply to everyone attending fixtures at King Power Stadium over the age of 18 and are in place to help supporters prepare for a future scenario where COVID certification becomes mandatory. For more information, please click HERE.

Patson Daka congratulates fellow substitute Kelechi Iheanacho after his winner against former side Man City.

Brendan Rodgers' men claimed their second piece of silverware in the space of only four months after the 2020/21 Emirates FA Cup winners beat Premier League champions Manchester City 1-0 at Wembley Stadium in August to lift their second FA Community Shield.

A defensive mix up with only three minutes of normal time remaining handed City the opportunity to win the match, as Nathan Aké tripped substitute Kelechi Iheanacho in the box and the Foxes were awarded a penalty. It was, indeed, the Nigeria frontman who would take the spot-kick, dispatching it into the corner to hand his side a late victory.
