After returning for a first Premier League home game in front of supporters for the first time in 18 months last weekend, it will be another packed house at Molineux on Sunday.
As the season begins, the stadium continues to operate under the Premier League Covid-19 protocols, so we are going to need the support of our fans to keep us operating at full capacity – or close to it – and we must work together to keep each safe and ‘match ready’.
Covid protocol and Code of Conduct
To allow supporters to return to Molineux at full capacity, the club has published a supporter’s code of conduct in line with Government advice and Premier League protocol.
This code of conduct is likely to be in place for the foreseeable future and must be followed by all supporters attending Molineux.
The full code of conduct can be viewed here and FAQs relating to the code of conduct can be found here.
Please do not travel to the stadium if you or anyone else you are attending with has any COVID-19 symptoms. We strongly recommend that supporters make use of widely available testing 48 hours before the game Please wear a face covering when in indoor areas other than when eating or drinking or where exempt. Supporters are not required to wear a face covering when they are seated in the stadium bowl. Please use hand sanitisers located around the stadium regularly. Arrive early and sit in your designated seat. Questions regarding the code of conduct can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Covid status spot checks and Covid pass
New Premier League protocols mean there will be a phased introduction of checks for Covid-19 status certification on matchdays, whereby each supporter may be asked to show proof of a full vaccination and/or of a negative lateral flow test which has been taken within the last 48 hours.
Spot checks will be in place for Sunday’s fixture with Manchester United. Adult supporters are encouraged to obtain a Covid Pass via the NHS App or NHS website so that they can provide proof of full vaccination and/or of a negative test within the past 48 hours. Supporters should be ready to show this when at the stadium.
Details of how to obtain your NHS Pass is available here. More information on the spot-checking process can be found here.
Participation in spot-checks is not compulsory at this stage, however, we urge supporters for their cooperation with checks likely to be in place for subsequent matches at Molineux.
