Until further notice Cardiff City Football Club has a responsibility to ensure all spectators over the age of 18 years show our staff evidence of their COVID status to enter the stadium.

This is a legal requirement, defined by Welsh Government, that we are duty bound to abide by.

Proof of COVID status may be presented to stadium support staff in the following ways:

  • By displaying a digital (mobile phone) solution such as the NHS COVID pass or an EU equivalent (click here for information on how to obtain the NHS COVID pass): please note that this will need to be updated every 30 days.

  • A digital or paper certificate of double vaccination.

  • Proof of a negative lateral flow test (LFT) result by text or email (within 48 hours of kick-off): do not bring the physical test unit with you (click here to obtain tests).

  • Confirmation of immunity. This can be proven by medical certificate if the person endeavouring to gain access has recovered from COVID no sooner than 14 days and no longer than 6 months prior to the date of the fixture.


Supporters who are already fully vaccinated are encouraged to plan in advance of fixtures and sign up for a digital NHS COVID pass in advance (click here).

Turnstiles will open half an hour earlier than usual to support procedure until further notice. For the Middlesbrough fixture, that means that supporters are encouraged to start arriving from 10.30am (and two hours prior to all subsequent home fixtures).
