Face Coverings

Face coverings are mandatory and should be worn on arrival and throughout your visit, unless you are eating/drinking, or exempt.

Track and Trace

For track and trace purposes we must record the details of ALL customers. If you are attending WITHOUT the person who booked your tickets please ensure you fill your details in via our QR track and trace code on arrival at the venue.

Sanitisation and Cleaning

We ask that you sanitise your hands on arrival and regularly wash and sanitise your hands throughout your visit. We’ll have enhanced cleaning before and after the visit and additional sanitisation during the event.

Ventilation

The SSE Arena is ventilated using temperature regulated 100% fresh air. Fresh air is taken directly from outside and distributed throughout the building via multiple high level directional control nozzles. The air is then extracted via multiple points on all levels including the WC blocks and leaves the building. No air is recirculated within the ventilation system.

Be Distance Aware

We ask that you are respectful of others around and keep your distance from other people as you move through the venue. Event stewards and security staff will be to hand to help manage queues and the movement of people through the Arena.

Testing

In line with Government advice, it is strongly recommended that anyone taking part in, or attending, any events should take a rapid Covid-19 test (LFD) before they attend the event, and on days two and eight after the event.

Covid-19 Symptoms

We ask that customers do not come to the Arena if they are feeling unwell with any of the following:

- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

Please note: We will continue to review our entry requirements, in line with updates to legislation and evolving government and health advice and as such, entry requirements are subject to change. We appreciate your cooperation and adherence to these measures, which will help us to continue to run events and maintain our capacities.
