Safety First

Terms of entry
We kindly ask all customers aged 18 and over (unless medically exempt) attending a Panthers game at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, to be prepared to show a PRINTED OR DIGITAL COPY of one of the following: 

- A valid NHS Covid Pass via the NHS App or an NHS Covid Pass letter (available by phoning 119); or
- Proof of a negative lateral flow (text or email) or PCR test result within the last 48 hours; or
- Proof of a completed full course of vaccinations (with your 2nd jab at least 14 days ago); or
- Proof that you have had Covid-19 up to 180 days ago (and after a 10 day self-isolation period)

We recommend that you declare your Covid-19 status on the NHS app, which you can download here, or you can print your email or text results. 

You can order a free NHS Lateral Flow test here.

For more information on how to create your Covid pass see here. 

Failure to produce the required certification could result in entry being refused. 

It is illegal to attend an event if you have tested positive for Covid-19 or if you have been instructed to self-isolate. If this is the case, you must provide evidence to be entitled to a refund on your event ticket. If you booked ticket protection along with your tickets after 14 May 2020, this automatically covers both a positive Covid-19 test and legally required isolation.

We recommend that you use the NHS Track and Trace app by scanning your phone upon arrival. QR codes can be found around the venue to allow you to check in.

Face coverings - updated Saturday 11 December 2021
It is now a legal requirement to wear a face covering when visiting our venue, unless you are exempt. Face coverings must be worn during events and Nottingham Panthers matches but they can be removed when eating and drinking.

Take a test and keep everyone in the venue safe - updated Saturday 11 December 2021
As part of a major initiative across the entire live music sector to get everyone back to events safely and to keep fellow gig-goers, staff, artists and crew safe, we strongly encourage visitors to take a lateral flow test ahead of attending an event, regardless of whether they’ve been vaccinated. If you are unfortunate enough to test positive, refunds are available from your point of sale upon providing proof of a positive Covid-19 test result. Public health teams will be situated nearby promoting testing and vaccinations for those who are after more information and support.

Daily lateral flow testing for our contracted staff is compulsory and on event days, all casual staff must take a lateral flow test before they arrive at work and must prove they are negative. If our customers can do the same (take a lateral flow test prior to attending an event), we’re hopeful that Covid-19 transmission will be minimal for everyone.

Hand hygiene 
We’ve partnered with Lifebuoy to become Official Hand Sanitiser of the Motorpoint Arena. Free sanitiser stations can be found across the venue and we encourage all visitors to wash their hands wherever possible and sanitise regularly.

In line with government guidelines, we will provide the optimum amount of fresh air to all spaces to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19. Where possible, all suitable windows and doors will be used to maximise fresh air movement and spaces where adequate fresh air levels are more challenging to achieve, will be risk assessed and additional measures such as capacity controls will be considered.

Enhanced cleaning
We’ve enhanced our cleaning regime before, during and post events. All surfaces throughout the venue are sanitised using long lasting cleaning solutions.

We're moving towards being a cashless venue and encourage visitors to pay by contactless or card wherever possible.

We also encourage all customers to opt for paperless ticketing. When purchasing tickets, opt for tickets to be sent via email to be scanned from your phone on arrival at the venue. Please ensure you show tickets from the original PDF attachment when entering the venue, screenshots will not be accepted. 

We’re all in this together…
We’re all at different stages of comfort as the easing of restrictions are rolled out. Please be mindful and respectful of other customers in the venue who may be more, or less, cautious than you are. 

We have introduced a new scanning system which means tickets will be checked before you even enter the building. Once you are through the doors you will have no more checks to go through.

Specific action taken by the Nottingham Panthers  
The Panthers office are aiming to cut down face-to-face interactions as best they can so the club will change the way it operates the fifty-50 and shirt off his back raffles. The plan means online sales will be extended. You will still be able to buy tickets at home games as there will be QR codes all around the building so you can join in the fun by buying tickets on your phones. You’ll have just as much chance of winning if you buy before you leave home through the website or the links on social media. Tickets will be on sale throughout the week in the build up to games. 

There will be little if any ice level interaction with the players at home games. This means for now birthday photographs with players will not go ahead but something different will be coming in its place. More details soon.

Player and fans’ safety and protection, as ever, is paramount. It has been and continues to be a difficult time but we are confident of a positive return for the Panthers and for ice hockey at the arena with your help, patience and continued brilliant support.
