The RFL and Wembley National Stadium are committed to ensuring the health and safety of spectators at rugby league’s showpiece event, and fans who have purchased tickets have therefore agreed to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct for the event which can be viewed on The RFL’s website here.

REQUIREMENTS FOR STADIUM ENTRY

  • Print@Home match ticket, ID, and face covering

Before you head to the stadium, we please ask that you bring your Print@Home match ticket, proof of your Covid status (see below), your photographic ID and your face covering. If you do not have photographic ID, you will still be able to access the stadium.

Face coverings must be worn upon entry to the stadium and in all indoor areas. You can take it off ONLY when seated in view of the pitch.

  • Negative Lateral Flow Test or proof of full vaccination

All ticket holders aged 11 and older must show evidence of one of the following to be allowed entry to Wembley Stadium. Failure to do so will mean you are unable to enter the stadium.

For ticket holders based in England:     

  • Proof of full vaccination - both doses received at least 14 days prior to the match. It must be demonstrated either via your NHS COVID Pass on the NHS App or the English vaccination letter. Your vaccination card will not be accepted.
  • Or proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test (LFT), reported and demonstrated via your NHS COVID Pass on the NHS app (see below for details of how to access the NHS app), or a text message or email from NHS Test and Trace. This can be on your device (including a screenshot) or a printout. The test needs to be taken within 48 hours of the time stadium gates open (11am on matchday).
  • Or proof of natural immunity (a positive NHS PCR test in the last 180 days), demonstrated via your NHS COVID Pass on the NHS App.

For ticket holders based elsewhere in the UK:

  • Wales / Scotland only: proof of full vaccination - both doses received at least 14 days prior to the match. It must be demonstrated via the Scottish or Welsh vaccination record services.

Further info:

The easiest way for England residents to demonstrate their COVID-19 status is via the NHS COVID Pass on the NHS App. You can simply show your valid pass when entering the stadium.

The NHS COVID Pass is available if you are registered with a GP in England and:

  • have had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine (a full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine).
  • have had your second dose of the vaccine at least two weeks prior to matchday.
  • were vaccinated in England.
  • are aged 16 or over.
  • and/or have logged your negative Lateral Flow Test results in the last 48 hours.

Please note the ‘NHS App’ is different to the ‘NHS COVID-19’ App used to check into venues. The NHS App is free and available to download HERE. You can access it on a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.

More information and a video on how to access the NHS Covid Pass on the NHS app is available HERE.

If you are using your negative Lateral Flow Test result to demonstrate your COVID-19 status, you can only access your NHS COVID Pass (the screen that enables you to access Wembley) if you have registered and verified your identity on the app. You should also log your Lateral Flow Test results using the public reporting system. It can take up to two hours for your results to appear within the app.

If you are using your vaccination status to demonstrate your COVID-19 status, you can access your NHS COVID Pass whether or not you have verified your identity on the app. If you have not verified your identity, you will still be able to get your NHS COVID Pass (the screen that enables you to access Wembley).

Please keep in mind you will need to download and register for the NHS App, and check your status BEFORE travelling to Wembley. A step by step guide on how to access your NHS COVID Pass is available on the NHS website.

  • The test needs to be taken within 48 hours of the time gates open (11am on matchday).
  • The Lateral Flow Tests for stadium entry are free of charge.
