Trial at Sky Bet Championship Play‐Off final ‐ Wembley 

The NHS in England is working on providing individuals with the means to demonstrate their COVID status through a digital and non‐digital route. This service launched on 17 May and the app can be freely downloaded now. Trials are ongoing to test the technology, including a QR code scanning process. Results of these trials will be fed into the government review and will be used to develop and enhance the features of the service. 

Working with Wembley, an additional 1000 tickets per Club have been permitted at the Championship Play Off to help in supporting this status service trial. 

Stipulations for these 2000 fans are as follows: 

· All fans who are registered at an English postcode and aged 16 are asked to download the free NHS App and verify their details as soon as possible prior to the Final. Please note that the NHS App is not the same as the NHS COVID‐19 app. (The app is not available to fans in Scotland, Wales or Ireland) 

· All remaining fans within the overall 2000 will be issued with a dummy QR code to assist with the research and the test of the free NHS App 

For Brentford 

All tickets within the additional 1000 will be collected from the club ground from MD‐2 onwards, where fans be asked to show proof of a verified NHS App 

For Swansea 

All non‐England postcode tickets within the additional 1000 will be issued with a dummy QR code, which will then be scanned on arrival at Wembley. 

Please note that the above two stipulations are not a condition of entry, and spectators will not be refused entry if unable to comply with the above. 

Please note that spectators do not need to be vaccinated to take advantage of these additional tickets. 

Additional Questions 

1. What kind of feedback is being sought from the trial? 

After the scanning process, the research team may ask participants a few questions before entry. 

2. Can participants talk to people about the trial?  

We really appreciate your help in supporting this NHS app trial.  As this is a prototype of the service, we are expecting that some things will go to plan, and some elements will require review. We will be considering all participant feedback

Wembley Parking & Blue Badge Parking

Parking facilities which are available around Wembley Stadium connected by EE are managed and operated by Wembley Park. It is recommended that any guests wishing to drive to the stadium only use the Official Wembley Stadium Car Parks which are operated and managed by Wembley Park.  To reserve your space please visit here.  To avoid disappointment, please re-book your space early.


Wembley Stadium can confirm that no alcohol will be permitted in general admission areas at the upcoming Non-league Finals Day or EFL Play-off Finals following confirmation from the UK Government. 

Under UK Government guidelines, alcohol can only currently be served in hospitality settings such as pubs or bars where both seated areas and table service are in operation due to social distancing protocols. The details are outlined in both the UK Government’s ‘roadmap out of lockdown’ and Sports Grounds Safety Authority’s ‘Guide to Safety and Sports Grounds’

Wembley Stadium’s general admission areas do not have tables, chairs or operate table service, and therefore we are not permitted to serve alcohol in these areas for these fixtures. 

The FA and Wembley Stadium hope that having these protocols in place will help towards returning to normal for all supporters and venues in the near future.

Wembley is now cashless
Please note - Wembley Stadium is now cashless! Contactless & SmartPay payments will be accepted at all kiosks.
