Social distancing is in play in Croke Park – it’s 2m at all times. Be careful when passing other people in the stadium & avoid face-to-face contact with other supporters – pass with your back to them.
Wear a face covering in the stadium at all times – even when you are in your seat.If you are exempt from wearing a face-covering, you can collect a face-covering exemption lanyard from the customer care points in the outer and Inner Cusack concourse.
Every supporter needs to have a ‘safe pair of hands’; so make sure to wash them thoroughly and use sanitiser regularly. There are sanitisation stations throughout the stadium, but we’d encourage all supporters to bring their own too.
And remember, always cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and avoid hugs, high fives, and any other contact with other spectators at the match outside your support bubble. Always take care when celebrating & be sensible when you are shouting, cheering, or singing.
Remember, please stay in your seat as much as possible during the match and when you need to leave, wait till the aisle is clear. Always follow the stadium signs and any instructions you get from our safety stewards on the day.
At all times, listen and follow any safety instructions in the stadium – including over the PA, from our stadium safety stewards or on the big screens.
