Welcome back to The SSE Arena.

In advance of your visit there are a number of things you need to know.

To protect our fans, staff and all visitors we are implementing the following covid safety measures.

Please wear a face mask

Wash your hands regularly

Please maintain social distance where possible

Enhanced cleaning & sanitisation

Be respectful of others

Proof of covid status

All ticket holders aged 18 or over should be prepared to show one of the following along with valid ID to demonstrate their Covid Status, if requested by our venue team:

- Proof of full vaccination

- Proof of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test

- Proof of natural Covid-19 antibodies

Further details below.

Under 18s are not required to show their Covid-19 certification but we would still encourage children aged 11 and over to take a lateral flow test prior to the event, where possible.

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.

Dancing

Unfortunately dancing is not permitted at this stage.

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. Whilst the requirement for social distancing has been removed in the Arena bowl, distancing is legally required in certain areas around the concourse, including at catering units and toilets. Event stewards and security staff will be to hand to help manage queues and the movement of people through the Arena. Please be respectful and patient with our staff as they enforce the guidelines we must operate under, for your safety.

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.

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.

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
