Albion fans face new anti-Covid measures if they are to get into the Amex this season.

The club will require all match, season and away ticket holders aged 18 and over to produce an NHS Covid Pass or proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of kick-off.

These will be checked at the stadium perimeter and must be shown along with photographic ID.

The new measures come into force with immediate effect.

Albion face Getafe in a friendly on Saturday.

Such controls are likely to be mandatory across the nation from October.

Albion want a good look at how it all works and time to make amendments if necessary.

Other rules and recommendations, similar to those in effect when fans returned for the Manchester City game in May, will also be operational.


They include digital ticketing and the use of face coverings when moving around the stadium or in enclosed areas.
