Bradford City AFC can confirm - as a result of the Government’s ‘Plan B’ protocols - COVID certification will be required for all supporters attending fixtures at the Utilita Energy Stadium, starting with the club’s Boxing Day visit of Harrogate Town.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday announced that ‘Plan B’ would be implemented meaning, from next Wednesday (December 15), all supporters aged 18 and over will be required to show COVID certification (unless exempt, in which case you will be required to show proof of exemption) in order to gain entry to Valley Parade.
COVID certification can either be provided in the form of a double vaccination displayed via the NHS COVID Pass OR a negative lateral flow test up to 48 hours before entry.
The pass can be accessed through the NHS App or the NHS website - or through a letter which can be obtained on the NHS website or by calling 119 - and will allow you to share your vaccination status and test results in a secure way.
For a full list of exemptions from needing to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test or double vaccination to enter the Utilita Energy Stadium, please CLICK HERE. Supporters who are exempt MUST provide proof of this, and are advised to do so as soon as possible, with demand expected to be high.
Supporters are also advised to order COVID-19 lateral flow test packs - FREE OF CHARGE - from the gov.uk website, by CLICKING HERE or visiting the newly-installed pick-up point at The Broadway Bradford. Again, with demand expected to be high, supporters are advised to apply quickly.

If you cannot apply digitally using the NHS App or online service, you can ask for an NHS Covid Pass Letter to be sent to you in the post, by CLICKING HERE or calling 119.

PLEASE NOTE: ‘Plan B’ will not affect Saturday’s visit of Sutton United, and will only come into effect from City’s Boxing Day meeting with Harrogate Town.
