King Power Stadium

Arrive Early: COVID-19 Spot Checks In Place For Man Utd

COVID-19 spot checks will again be in place at King Power Stadium for the Premier League fixture against Manchester United on Saturday (3pm BST kick-off) as part of efforts to minimise the risk of virus transmission.

The Club requests supporters attending matches at King Power Stadium to arrive early due to the COVID-19 certification spot checks and security searches that may be taking place at entry points and as requested in the Club’s Supporter Code of Conduct.

To ensure the safety of everyone in attendance and to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission, COVID-19 status spot checks will be in place and all supporters over the age of 18 should be prepared 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.

To minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission and to keep each other as safe as possible, the Club’s advice to its supporters is to take a lateral flow test at home before each fixture they plan to attend, as well as wearing face-coverings when moving around in any indoor areas in the stadium.

For information on how to order a lateral flow test, click HERE. If you are feeling unwell with COVID-19 symptoms or any cold or flu-type symptoms, please DO NOT come to the game. Book a test through the Government website or call 119.

Why am I being asked to do this?

The key objectives are to increase supporter safety and help ensure that football in the UK continues to be staged with stadiums at full capacity.

What if I cannot confirm my COVID-19 status?

If you are unable to confirm your COVID-19 status in a spot check, you will be advised that it may become a condition of entry for King Power Stadium going forward but will be granted access for this fixture.

The information gathered from these spot checks will help to ensure that matches are being managed safely and help everyone prepare for a future scenario whereby COVID-19 certification checks become mandatory for entry to King Power Stadium.

In that scenario, should any person be unable to confirm their COVID-19 status by one of the methods described above, they would be denied access to King Power Stadium.

How can I confirm my COVID-19 status?

Adult supporters are encouraged to obtain a COVID Pass via the NHS App or NHS website which can then be shown to matchday staff when at the stadium. Details on how to obtain your NHS COVID Pass are available HERE.

Other acceptable current forms of proof are listed below:

- Covid Pass via the NHS App – not the NHS Covid-19 App
- PDF Version from the NHS App
- Negative test result email or text message
- NHS Covid-Pass letter
- NHS Covid Vaccine Card
