New Covid-19 guidelines

The club can confirm there will be no mandatory Covid certification at Brunton Park at this time.

If this changes fans will be informed as soon as possible.

There will be no requirement to show vaccination status or a recent negative test to enter the stadium and come to games.

Mandatory face coverings:

Supporters will not be required to wear a face covering when located in their seat, or on the terrace, in the stadium bowl.

All supporters aged 11 and over will be legally required to wear a face covering when located in all indoor areas of the stadium, other than when eating or drinking, or where exempt. 

Mandatory face-coverings for indoor settings do not extend to hospitality and bar settings in the club. Hence face coverings in Foxy’s, the hospitality boxes, lounges, and the west stand bars are not mandatory. 

Face coverings are required in the East Stand concourse and all other inside areas, such as toilets and entry and exit vomitories.

Face coverings are strongly recommended when brushing past others or moving in or out and around the stadium outside (like queuing to get in).

We will continue to operate our Social distanced area in Section 8 of the Pioneer East stand where fans can sit with more space and face-coverings are mandatory while in your seat.

If you are exempt you must be prepared to show evidence, if requested.

Covid-19 Spectator Code of Conduct:

Whilst we will not be introducing mandatory Covid certification at this time, it is critical all our fans continue to play their part in minimising the risk our games pose to fellow fans and the wider community.  We remain fully committed to this.

Fans must continue to follow our Covid-19 Spectator Code of Conduct. We have updated the Covid-19 Spectator Code of Conduct to reflect the changes associated with ‘Plan B’.

Shirt Amnesty

As of right now, you can bring along any football shirts you may have which are no longer required.   

Collection points will be situated at the East Stand ticket office (upstairs in the blue stand) at our Blues Store and at the CUOSC match day surgery in the Study Centre ahead of every Saturday home game (not available on a Tuesday night).

That means you can drop your old shirts off when you’re purchasing your tickets, visiting the Blues Store or coming to the game. 

The donated shirts will be sorted and distributed for use at home and overseas for charitable and community purposes. 

For this initial project, we are asking fans to only donate shirts (not shorts, socks or training/leisurewear). 

Please bring them fully washed and clean.

Not Today or Any Day!

Throughout season 2021/22, the EFL will be promoting a new ‘Together Against Discrimination’ match day message which will see clubs across all three divisions adopting a unified position on a matchday reiterating that racism, discrimination and abuse is not welcome in our game or in our communities.

If you see or hear it, report it.

Download the free Kick It Out reporting App HERE.

Alternatively email report@kickitout.org to register your concern confidentially, or ring 0800 169 9414.

We also have a club number dedicated to the reporting of such instances - 07891 779 015.
