AnnouncementPlan B: New entry requirements for Anfield
Responding to the UK government's Plan B announcement, Anfield will have new entry requirements for accessing the stadium on matchdays from the Newcastle United fixture on Thursday December 16.
- COVID status certification required by all supporters
- Spot checks in place around Anfield
- Entry will be denied if unable to show the legally required documentation
- Face coverings must be worn when moving around the stadium
- Complete LFC health declaration form if received by email
- Under 18s are exempt from checks
What you need to do…
Fans must bring their COVID documentation to the match as they may be subject to a COVID spot check by the club’s stewarding team. You risk being denied entry to the match if you are unable to show the legally required evidence if asked.
If you have purchased a ticket for a game at Anfield and you have received an email from the club asking you to complete a health declaration form, you must submit the form at least four hours before kick-off. This is in line with Premier League requirements.
What documentation you need...
The new government policy changes will now require all fans across the league with matchday tickets to a home or away fixture to have one of the following for entry:
Mandatory in-date COVID status certification
- NHS COVID Pass - record of double vaccination (and booster if you have had it)
- Confirmation of a negative PCR or NHS lateral flow test OR COVID recovery certificate
- EU digital COVID certificate
- COVID Pass letter for those who are double vaccinated
- Negative COVID test email or text message
Wear face coverings...
Face coverings are also mandatory when indoors at Anfield but not when seated inside the bowl. You should also wear a mask when moving around the stadium.
Working closely with city partners, Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Police and Spirit of Shankly, the club continues to prioritise the safety of supporters, staff, players and the local community. LFC will also continue to work with football’s governing bodies to adhere to their guidelines and advice regarding any safety restrictions.
All partners are committed to doing everything possible to keep supporters safe and maintain maximum capacity at Anfield to support the team.
Matt Ashton, director of public health at Liverpool City Council, said: “We are encouraging everybody to get vaccinated and when it’s your time please go and get the booster jab. By getting the vaccination, fans will be able to watch the game with the peace of mind that they are doing so safely and that matches can go ahead with fans. I would also ask everyone attending the game to take a lateral flow test before heading to Anfield.”
Children under the age of 18 are exempt from checks and will not be asked to participate.
Other fans who are also exempt from providing COVID vaccination and testing, please follow the below links for the latest government guidance as you may still be asked to provide a NHS COVID Pass or exemption certificate:

LFC would like to thank supporters for their patience and understanding as the club navigates its way through the new policy changes.
