Covid-19 safety and guidance

The health and safety of everyone visiting Lord’s is our highest priority. Whilst the Government’s restrictions have been eased, Covid-19 is still in circulation and we understand that some people are likely to feel more comfortable than others about attending large events. 

Visitors do not have to show proof of double vaccination or provide a negative Lateral Flow Test, however, we are strongly encouraging all visitors to take a test if you have not been double jabbed at least two weeks prior to attending. 

All staff working at Lord’s are required to show proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test taken within 72 hours of match day.

You must not visit the Ground if you feel unwell before you leave the house or have any doubts about your health. You must not come to the Ground if you or someone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19 and you are self-isolating as a result, or if you have received an alert from the NHS COVID-19 Test and Trace app asking you to self-isolate.

To protect each other and help everyone feel comfortable and able to enjoy their day at Lord’s, please follow the guidance below:

Please help MCC to reduce plastic waste at Lord’s. Beer and cider is provided in reusable cups. Please do not throw these cups in the general waste. Instead, deposit them in the Recup collection points located close to each bar. You will receive a fresh pint cup with each new drink.

We have removed the £1 deposit on these cups for your ease and safety. Please help us, in return, by depositing your used cups at the collection points.

Since adopting the Recup scheme we’ve stopped over 1.5 million single use plastic cups ending up in landfill.

Water refill points are available around the Ground so please bring with you a reusable water bottle so you can fill up when needed.
