Covid-19 health and safety measures

Germany has identified three categories of risk areas. Different rules apply depending on where your country of origin is listed. The three areas are:

  • Risk areas
  • High incidences areas
  • Areas of variant concern

Any person who has been in a risk or high incidence area ten days prior to entering Germany is required to quarantine for ten days unless they provide the relevant authorities with one of the following proofs:

  • A negative Covid-19 test result, taken less than 48 hours before travelling to Germany, or less than 48 hours after arriving in Germany. Proof of a negative test result must be written in one of the following languages: German, English, French, Italian or Spanish
  • Proof of Covid-19 infection less than six months and more than 28 days ago in one of the following languages: English, French, German, Italian or Spanish
  • Proof of receipt of two doses of vaccination, more than 14 days ago, in one of the following languages: English, French, German, Italian or Spanish.

If your country of origin is listed as an area of variant concern, you may not enter Germany.

To enter the stadium supporters must present a negative Covid-19 test taken in Germany within 24 hours of kick-off.

  • The test must be uploaded to one of two apps - the Luca app (Download for Android / iOS) or the Corona-Warn-App (Download for Android / iOS). If you are a non-German resident, you can only use the Luca app.
  • Book a test at any test centre in Germany that cooperates with the luca app. The test must be taken within 24 hours of the kick-off. Tests taken more that 24 hours in advance of the match will not be accepted.
  • After receiving your negative test result, upload it to the luca app.
  • It's recommended that you have your test validated before arriving at the stadium entrance. Simply show your test result to one of our friendly volunteers at the entrance to the esplanade - look out for the "test validation" signs. This will help speed things up at the stadium entrance and avoid queues.

Spectators can also present a COVID-19 wristband, which can be picked up at the stadium for ticket holders who have recovered from COVID-19 or been fully vaccinated. To receive wristband:

  • Book an appointment at the collection point at the stadium.

  • Bring your vaccination certificate, or proof of previous infection dated less than six months ago, and ID (passport or ID card).
  • At the collection point, the wristband will be put around your arm
  • On matchday, simply show your wristband to the staff at the stadium entrance.
