Bath Rugby looks forward to welcoming you back to the Rec. In line with Government guidance on the admission of supporters to sports stadia, this Code of Conduct acts to guide and advise ticket holders of the protocols in place on matchday.
The Club has put in place a range of processes to ensure the safety of all supporters at our matches, however it is vitally important that all attendees play their part in making each event safe and enjoyable and to do so we need your continued support and cooperation. Supporters are therefore kindly reminded of the requirement to adhere to this Code of Conduct and follow all safety requirements at all times, in order to assist Club staff and stewards, and to help protect you and your fellow supporters.
- Supporters are reminded if purchasing tickets on behalf of others, they are required to provide names and contact details for each individual ticket holder and tickets must not be passed on to anyone else. This is in order to comply with the UK Government’s Track and Trace requirements.
- Supporters must not come to the Rec if they cannot satisfy all the requirements of the health declaration at the time of entering the ballot or purchasing tickets, or before attending the game. In the event you develop COVID-19 symptoms whilst at the Stadium, please notify the nearest member of Club staff immediately.
- Plan your journey in advance and arrive at the stadium in line with the arrival time provided to you. Be aware that different gates and routes will be in operation to avoid the crossing of people and queues. Do not congregate on the approach routes to the Rec or at the entrance gates.
- You are asked to comply with the direction of all stewards, the PA announcements, and all signage on the approach to, and inside the ground. All measures are in place to keep you, your fellow supporters and our staff safe.
- Please observe social distancing with all others not in your social bubble when approaching, entering, leaving and at all other times whilst inside the ground.
- Maintain good hand hygiene at all times around the stadium – use the sanitiser dispensers provided and avoid touching your face, or holding handles and railings whenever possible.
- You must wear a face covering whilst at the Rec except when eating or drinking. If you are exempt from wearing a covering (as per UK Government guidelines), please be tolerant in explaining this to stewards or other supporters who may ask you to wear one.
- Please avoid bringing any bags into the stadium to prevent slowing the entrance to the Rec. Small handbags are permitted.
- Once your ticket has been scanned, please go straight to your seat and do not socialise or congregate in the concourses.
- Please only leave your seat to use the toilet or at the end of the game. If leaving your seat, please pass with your back to other supporters in your row and be considerate of others using the stairs or corridors.
- When using toilet facilities, please follow all guidance, be patient and considerate towards other users, and wait your turn to avoid toilet areas becoming crowded. Where possible, try to avoid peak times (such as half-time and the end of the game).
- If sat in the stands, you will be able to purchase food and drink on a mobile device from your seat which will then be delivered to you. There will be no concessions open for you to visit.
- Please refrain from touching the match ball if it is kicked out of play and into the stands. A member of Club staff will collect the ball in order to sanitise it and return it to the field of play.
- If you are accompanying a child, please remember that you are responsible for their behaviour and ensuring that they comply with all guidance, including social distancing, at all times.
- Do not approach any of our players or coaching staff at any time. They will not be able to sign autographs or pose for photographs at this time.
- At the end of the game you will be asked to leave the ground one row at a time under the direction of the stewards. Please be patient when leaving the stadium and follow any guidance. It will take longer than normal to leave in order to ensure your safety.
- The Club reserves the right to eject and ban any supporter that fails to comply with this Code of Conduct and reminds all fans that stadium capacities may ultimately be negatively impacted as a result of any safety issues.
Please be kind and patient with our staff and your fellow supporters. We are excited to be welcoming you back to the Rec and thank you for your help in making matchday as safe as possible for us all.
