Supporter information | Swansea City v Blackburn Rovers

4th February 2022

Read our in-depth supporter guide for those attending Saturday’s Championship game against Blackburn Rovers at the Stadium.

Supporters are reminded that this fixture will now kick off at 5.30pm, and NHS COVID passes are a legal requirement for fans wishing to attend fixtures at the Stadium, therefore early arrival is advised.

Turnstiles will open 90 minutes prior to kick off as usual, whilst hospitality doors will open 30 minutes earlier than usual. Therefore, hospitality guests can join us from 3pm on Saturday, and enjoy the second half of the Wales v Ireland, Six Nations fixture.

Supporters and hospitality guests are advised to wear a face covering when moving through hospitality and concourse areas, but are not required when in the bowl seating area.


A reminder that there is no change to the requirements for the NHS COVID pass. Supporters also must adhere to our code of conduct found HERE.

Supporters must ensure that if using a digital NHS COVID pass, that their pass is updated and displaying a valid date.

At previous fixtures there have been some supporters, who have had difficulty trying to access the internet, to view their covid pass. To avoid any problems, we highly recommend that supporters either:

  • Add their NHS COVID pass to their digital wallets (such as the Apple wallet or Google Pay)
  • Screenshot the valid pass
  • Print a physical a copy of the pass

There is full information available on the NHS COVID pass on our dedicated webpage, and we encourage supporters to review this, before travelling to the Stadium.

Face coverings are also encouraged in the concourses, but they can be removed when in the stadium bowl and during the game.

We ask fans to be patient and respectful of our match day staff, as abuse will not be tolerated. We thank supporters in advance for their support in this process.


There will be no Lateral Flow Test available on site on a match day for fans to utilise.

Supporters who require a negative Lateral Flow Test result, must have already completed their test, and recorded the result with the NHS prior to travelling to the stadium.

Supporters who choose this method of NHS Covid pass must show the text message or email received, proving the negative result, to gain entry to the stadium.

The test itself is not proof of a negative result, so please do not bring this with you.
