Green Army at Cheltenham

Birmingham City (A) | Supporter Information

Nearly 3,000 members of the Green Army will descend upon St. Andrew's on Saturday evening for the Pilgrims' Emirates FA Cup third round clash with Sky Bet Championship side Birmingham City.

With the Blues' working stadium capacity exceeding 10,000, supporters are advised that COVID Status checks will be in operation, and to plan accordingly.

Please note that the following COVID Status guidance applies to those aged 18 and over.

Birmingham City have compiled guidance for the fixture, and you can read it in full by clicking here.

Please note that the stadium will open from 3pm, 2.5 hours ahead of kick-off, and supporters are advised to arrive early to avoid queues at the turnstiles. As is consistent with regulations across the country, supporters will be asked to show evidence of their COVID status through one of the following options:

  • A valid digital NHS Covid pass
  • A printed NHS Covid pass
  • Proof of a negative lateral flow test (LFT) or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. Please note that this comes from an NHS SMS confirmation of negative result, rather than producing a completed test unit at the turnstiles.

In order to reduce queuing times and to avoid any data issues that can occur at stadia, Birmingham City are encouraging all fans to download an up-to-date Covid pass before arriving and have them out and ready for checks ahead of entering the turnstiles.

Supporters are reminded not to travel to St. Andrew's if they do not possess a match ticket, as there is no pay on the day function available for the away end.

Thank you for your support.
