Safety measures at the Breyer Group Stadium

access_time 2 months ago

We are looking forward to welcoming you to all home games as usual and we will be taking extra measures to ensure your safety.

All Leyton Orient staff will wear masks at all times and will be undertaking lateral flow tests before entering the ground.

We also encourage supporters to wear a face mask in all areas of the stadium when not eating or drinking.

Hand sanitisers will be widely available around the ground and fans are encouraged to use them.

From Wednesday 15 December, Covid-19 Certification will become mandatory for entry into settings where large crowds gather (over 10,000 or 4,000 standing)

The size of the Breyer Group Stadium means that you DO NOT need a Covid Pass to watch a home Leyton Orient fixture, but YOU WILL need a Covid pass to attend some away fixtures, and as a club we will update you all in due course of these games.

This means fans will need to be prepared to provide evidence of Covid-19 Certification to enter the ground where the attendance will exceed 10,000 seated or 4,000 standing.

Clubs have the authority to refuse entry to the ground if a supporter does not provide the necessary COVID-19 status evidence.

I am concerned about attending matches. Is it safe?

All EFL clubs have worked tirelessly to ensure they are ‘fan-ready’ so that supporters have been able to return as safely as possible.

Football is one of the most regulated industries in crowd management and our clubs have huge experience of the operational delivery of football matches.

EFL clubs are following training ground and matchday protocols that have been designed to reflect the current situation – they are flexible enough to ensure we can take the most appropriate measures if required and most importantly keep everyone as safe as possible.

Supporters should ensure they fully understand these guidelines before attending a match and all fans should continue to follow the latest public health guidance.

Fans should not attend the Breyer Group Stadium if they are unwell or if there is any risk they can pass on COVID-19.

The EFL and its clubs will continue to follow the latest Government guidance regarding COVID-19 safety protocols.
