LCFC have today announced that new safety measures will be in place for their home game against Manchester City on 11th September 2021. We've detailed the full details below. For further information you can contact LCFC's customer support via their website LCFC.co.uk.
COVID 19 Measures
To ensure the safety of everyone in attendance and to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission, the spot checks, which are part of new Premier League protocols, will ask everyone over the age of 18 to provide one of the below:
- Proof of full vaccination for a period of more than two weeks
- A negative lateral flow or PCR test result from within the previous 48 hours
- An exemption from COVID-19 vaccinations
The spot check rules apply to everyone attending fixtures at King Power Stadium over the age of 18 and are in place to help supporters prepare for a future scenario where COVID certification becomes mandatory.
Please be aware that should COVID-19 certification become mandatory for fixtures in the future and you are unable to provide one of the three options above during a spot check, you will be denied access to King Power Stadium, as per Premier League protocols.
To minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission and to keep each other as safe as possible, the Club’s advice to its supporters is to take a lateral flow test at home before each fixture they plan to attend, as well as wearing face-coverings when moving around in any indoor areas in the stadium.

WHY AM I BEING ASKED TO DO THIS?
This process is part of new Premier League protocols for a phased introduction of COVID-19 status certification checks on matchday, whereby each supporter may be asked to show one of the above three items of proof.
The key objectives are to increase supporter safety and help ensure that football in the UK continues to be staged with stadiums at full capacity.
It is hoped that, by preparing now for a possible future scenario where COVID status certification is made a mandatory condition of entry to football matches, this will help to get everyone ‘match ready’ (and to keep each other safe).
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE PROOF?
If you are unable to provide proof in a spot check, you will be advised that it may become a condition of entry for all Premier League venues going forward, but granted access.
The information gathered from these spot checks will help everyone prepare for a future scenario whereby COVID-19 certification checks become mandatory for entry to King Power Stadium.
In that scenario, should any person be unable to provide any of the accepted proof, they would be denied access to King Power Stadium.
HOW DO I GET PROOF OF A FULL VACCINATION?
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, and supporters should be ready to show this when at the stadium. Details of how to obtain your NHS Pass is available here.
Other acceptable current forms of proof are listed below:
- Covid Pass via the NHS App – not the NHS Covid-19 App
- PDF Version from the NHS App
- Negative test result email or text message
- NHS Covid-Pass letter
- NHS Covid Vaccine Card
DOS AND DON’TS
Safety comes first, so supporters attending matchdays at King Power Stadium should:
- Obtain a COVID Pass and be ready to show they are fully vaccinated or have taken a negative lateral flow test in the last 48 hours
- Bring a face covering to wear while in any indoor areas in the stadium
- Arrive early and only sit in your designated seat
- Wash and sanitise your hands regularly
- Be respectful of others
Supporters should continue to follow the latest Government guidance and must not:
- Attend any match if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, test positive for COVID-19 or are otherwise required to self-isolate
- Gather outside stadiums in a way that breaches steward instructions
- Engage in any conduct that is intended to or likely to transmit the COVID-19 virus
