There will be a NHS Covid-19 vaccine on site at Emirates Old Trafford during this event from 1-6pm and is open to anybody aged 18 and over who wants to take the vaccine (Pfizer and AstraZeneca being used). If you have not yet had a vaccine, you can have your first dose, or second dose if your first dose was 8 weeks ago or more. Just speak to a steward or member of staff and they will direct you. A team of professionals are on hand to answer any questions and look forward to seeing you.

This is what we are asking our hospitality clients MUST do:


The recent Government announcement around the lifting of the restrictions on Monday 19 July is a welcome update even though we are being encouraged to ‘proceed with caution’. The safety and wellbeing of our supporters is of the utmost importance. With this in mind Lancashire Cricket, in conjunction with the licensing authority, we have outlined the following protocols:

Due to protocols around indoor facilities, those with hospitality tickets MUST show proof of one of the following:

  • A negative lateral flow test or PCR Test taken in the last 48 hours prior to the game shown, for example, on the NHS app, Email, or message on your smart phone.
  • Proof of a double vaccination either by showing your vaccination card, or via the NHS app on your smart phone. To do this, visit nhs.uk

Please note, you will not be guaranteed access to the hospitality suite if you fail to show your proof of the conditions above.
