In the build-up to the Betfred Challenge Cup Final at Wembley on Saturday afternoon, there will be a mobile Covid-19 Test Centre at the Totally Wicked Stadium the day before the match for fans to confirm their status before attending.
Covid-19 rates are high in St.Helens at present so it’s really important we help to stop the spread further by taking a symptom free test before you travel to London, even if you have been fully vaccinated to help us reduce the risk of spread.
The Mobile Testing unit will be located on the main stadium car park at the Totally Wicked Stadium, between 10am-4pm on Friday 16th July, on arrival stewards will direct you to this location.
We know you will be looking forward to the Final but if you, or anyone in your household have symptoms of Covid-19 such as a new, continuous cough, or a high temperature, or a loss of sense of taste or smell please isolate at home and book a test at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.
Do not attend the mobile testing unit as this is only for people who do not have symptoms.
If you’re travelling down to Wembley on public transport or on a coach please make sure you continue to follow the guidance by wearing a face mask, make sure to wash your hands or use hand sanitiser regularly, particularly after touching well used surfaces like hand rails, and where ever possible keep your distance from others and open windows to improve ventilation.
All fans attending the Final will have already received information regarding their access criteria to the stadium directly from the RFL – this can also be viewed on the links below:
