Following the latest announcement from the Welsh government, all visitors will need to have a ‘Covid Pass’ to attend. This is simply either proof that you’ve been vaccinated or proof of a negative Covid lateral flow test. These just need to be shown as you walk through the gates and don’t need to be provided in advance. We will also have a Covid testing facility available at each fixture. There is no charge should you require a lateral flow test on the day, but it can take up to 30 minutes to process.
