UK Government announce Euro 2020 travelling guidance for fans

Thousands of England supporters will hope to purchase tickets in time for what will be a historic semi-final at Wembley after the emphatic defeat of Ukraine in Rome on Saturday evening. There have initially been 8,500 tickets set aside for England supporters while 5,000 have been allocated for the Danish. However, for supporters based overseas looking to travel to the UK, arriving in London for the match is a slightly more complex proposition to overcome. The latest guidelines have been announced by the Government to help oversee a return to large crowds with Wembley Stadium’s capacity expected to reach 60,000 for the semi-finals and final. The announcement issued a timely reminder for those supporters considering traveling by plane, train or bus into the country. Foreign-based football supporters will have to adhere to strict measures with public health and safety an absolute priority in the conclusion of what has been a very successful tournament until now. UK border policy Most of the 60,000 ticket ticket holders are based domestically but there are foreign-based supporters travelling from the Common Travel Area (CTA) and a small minority were successful in UEFA’s initial ballot and are due to travel from outside of the CTA. Supporters wishing to travel to the UK to watch any of the matches should only do so if they have a ticket and are not in a red list country. Supporters travelling from an amber list country will have arrived in the UK and already quarantined for 10 days before the match which includes 5 full days with test-and-release. A Passenger Locator Form also needs to be completed before travelling to the UK which will help keep queues to a minimum. A negative test result from a Pre-Departure Test within 72 hours of coming to the UK is a must as well as a test booked for Day 2 and Day 8 prior to arriving.

The UK Government works closely with UEFA in order to issue the correct information to international ticket holders early and additional information available on gov.uk. The Government has also stated that all ticket holders will need to show proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test (LFT) taken 48 hours before stadium gate opens and proof via email or text message from the relevant test center is also required upon entry. Other forms of proof such as vaccination record for PCR test or a COVID-19 vaccination record card, will not be accepted and entry will be denied. Face coverings will need to be worn inside and around the stadium at all times.
