For a comprehensive list of football matches and where they are being played, please refer to the table below. Each match venue have their own websites which provide information on how to get to the game, what items are allowed or are not permitted, and any special requirements.
your passport should be valid for the duration of your stay. You do not need any additional period of validity on your passport beyond this
the US Visa Waiver Programme (VWP) allows most British Citizen passport holders to visit the US for up to 90 days. The types of journey that are permissible under the VWP include tourism, certain types of business visit and transit to another country. If you have a British passport that describes your nationality as something other than ‘British Citizen’ you will need to get a visa
all those travelling under the Visa Waiver Programme arriving by air or sea should provide details online at least 72 hours before travel. This is known as an Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA). If you do not have an ESTA you will be refused entry to the USA. For more information and to apply online, visit the official ESTA website
your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is not valid in the US and so comprehensive travel insurance is essential, even if you are only going for one night. It could save you a lot of money should you get into difficulty
you must carry a form of identification with you at all times
allow enough time to arrive at the venue, especially if it is your first time visiting
bring identification if you are collecting or purchasing tickets on the day
remember to look left when crossing the road and if driving keep to the right hand side
