FANS must show Covid certification to attend Oxford United’s upcoming home matches, the club have confirmed.

Starting from the visit of Sheffield Wednesday on January 22, supporters must present either a valid NHS Covid pass or a negative lateral flow test result within 48 hours of kick-off to enter the Kassam Stadium.

It follows last month’s government announcement that Covid certification would be required for outdoor venues where crowds reach 10,000 or more.

Fans who cannot provide either a Covid pass or negative test result will not be allowed to enter, unless they are exempt.

Inside the stadium, supporters must wear face coverings when indoors, other than when they are eating or drinking.

The clash with Wednesday begins a run of home games where attendances could exceed five figures.

United are scheduled to host Portsmouth on Saturday, February 5, with Bolton Wanderers the visitors a week later.
