Rotherham United would like to inform supporters that random Covid certification checks will be taking place at our Sky Bet League One fixture with Cambridge United at Abbey Stadium on Saturday 18th December.
Although covid certification is not currently a legal requirement due to the capacity at Abbey Stadium, our opponents have accepted a recommendation from Public Health Cambridge and its Safety Advisory Group to make random Covid Passport checks, due to high infection rates in the local area.
We would like to advise supporters (18+) to be ready to show proof of either of the following for Saturday’s game:
- Covid certification proving double vaccination status
- A negative lateral flow or PCR test within 48 hours prior to kick
- A medical exemption
The preferred proof of double vaccination is an NHS Covid pass via the NHS app, although other forms of confirmation, such as physical documentation from the NHS, will also be accepted on Saturday.
Cambridge United are asking supporters to download the NHS app and have their Covid Pass downloaded in their mobile wallet in-advance of the fixture, in order to avoid delays on the day of the match.
For supporters who don’t have a smartphone, a certificate can be obtained by ringing 119.
Please be aware that any supporter who fails to provide proof of certification when asked to do so WILL NOT be granted entry to the ground.
Face coverings will also be mandatory for supporters aged 11 and over in all indoor areas, with the exception of when eating or drinking or a valid exemption. Face coverings will not be required in the stand.
We would like to thank supporters in advance for their understanding and cooperation on this matter.
