Brighton and Hove Albion

As part of the Government’s Plan B response to Covid in the UK – The Premier League now requires fans to attend games at the Amex:

  • Provide at a spot check an accepted COVID-19 certification form with matching photo ID (all fans 18 years of age or older)
  • Complete a pre-game online COVID declaration form
  • Wear a face covering when traveling in internal areas or busy areas of the stadium and on public transport to and from the stadium.

It will be against the law to grant admission to anyone unable to comply with this legal requirement.

Watch the video explaining the measurements here.

All accepted Covid statuses are listed below must be accompanied by an identity document that matches (all home and away fans aged 18 or over).

You should also continue to ensure that you follow government guidelines and you should not attend if you have symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature, new continuous cough, or loss or change in your sense of smell or taste).

Online declaration

Fans coming to the match must complete an online pre-match declaration form before arriving at the stadium. For match ticket holders (for both home and away matches), this will need to be done before each match they wish to attend; season ticket holders will only need to do this once to cover the season for their Amex seat, but will need to do this for all game-by-game or away game guests.

Complete your Covid declaration in good time. For match ticket purchases, this will be done at the point of purchase.

For our Club 1901 members, the booking manager will need to complete this declaration on behalf of their party.

Face covering and behavior

We urge everyone to continue to use common sense to protect themselves, other supporters and our staff from COVID-19.

  • you must wear a face mask in confined areas such as lobbies and in congested areas such as queues. We also strongly recommend that they be worn inside the stadium bowl at all times.
  • you must wear a face covering when traveling to and from the game by public transport
  • maintain social distancing where you can

We urge everyone to continue to use common sense to protect themselves, other supporters and our staff from COVID-19.
