COVID Fixtures: Spectator Code of Conduct


Information for participants

  • We look forward to welcoming you back in line with Government guidance on the admission of spectators. This Code of Conduct acts to principally guide and advise ticket holders of the protocols in place for your attendance.
  • The Club has in place a range of processes to ensure the safety of all entering on any match day, however it is vitally important that all attendees play their part in making it safe and enjoyable and to do so we need your full cooperation.
  • You are therefore kindly reminded of the requirement to always adhere to this Code of Conduct, and follow all safety requirements, to assist Club staff, stewards, and volunteers, and to help protect you and your fellow spectators. 
  • People attending a match are encouraged to take a COVID-19 Lateral Flow Test 24 hours/ on the morning of the match and register the test result with the NHS. A positive test means you should NOT attend the match and follow current government guidelines.
  • You must not attend if suffering from COVID-19 symptoms (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste), are feeling unwell, or if you have been in close contact recently with anyone experiencing symptoms or who has tested positive.
  • Spectators are urged to pre-purchase electronic tickets although tickets will be available to purchase in some turnstiles. Follow all Club signage, instructions and guidance issued by stewards and/or Club personnel.
  • QR code posters will be displayed at the ground and spectators are encouraged to scan into the J Davidson stadium. 
  • Spectators are encouraged to wear face coverings.
  • Bags are only permitted on medical or childcare reasons, to reduce the security screening interactions. 
  • Smoking and vaping are not permitted in the Main or Family stands.
  • When using toilet facilities, please follow all guidance. Be patient and considerate towards other users and wait your turn to avoid toilets areas becoming crowded. Where possible, try to avoid peak times (such as half-time and the end of the game).  Always maintain good hand hygiene around the stadium – use the sanitiser dispensers provided and avoid touching your face or handles and railings whenever possible.  Please remain in your seat/standing location for the full game if possible – including at half time and avoid unnecessary movement. If you need to move, wait until gangways are clear, avoid face to face contact and follow stewards’ instructions. 
  • We all hope we will be celebrating a goal but please be mindful of your fellow supporters and their personal space.
  • Please refrain from touching the match ball if it is kicked out of play and into where you are watching the match. A member of Club staff will collect the ball. 
  • Do not approach any of the Club’s or visiting Club’s players or coaching staff at any time, as players and staff will not be able to sign autographs or pose for photographs. 
  • Please be ultra-patient when leaving the stadium and listen to the advice from stewards. It will be necessary to hold spectators back from the changing room tunnel whilst players and coaching staff are leaving the pitch. 
  • The Club reserves the right to eject any supporter that fails to comply with this Code of Conduct and reminds you the stadium capacities under which we can operate to allow spectators to return may ultimately be negatively impacted because of any safety issues.
  • Thank you for your support and full co-operation. Stay alert, follow these guidelines, and help us all enjoy your attendance as safely as possible under the circumstances.
