Passports and visas
British Nationals don’t need a visa to travel to Spain, but your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is required
remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is valid for Spain but you should still take out travel insurance, even if you’re only going for one night - it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties
you must provide ID (your passport) if requested by a police officer. The police have the right to hold you at a police station until your identity is confirmed.
always take care of your passport, as getting a replacement is costly and time-consuming
Getting to the stadium
The stadium is located on the Sevilla Fútbol Club Street, off the calle Luis de Morales behind the Nervion Plaza commercial centre.
At the match
gates will open 2 hours before the match starts, at 6:45pm
Manchester City fans should enter the stadium through gates 10 and 12
fans should follow Spanish police instructions and avoid physical contact of any type (including requests to take photos etc.)
anyone who is obviously drunk won’t be allowed into the stadium.
no flares, fireworks, alcohol, cans, glass, bottle tops, food or drink are allowed in the stadium. Snacks, soft drinks and water are available inside the stadium. Flag and banner poles should be removed before entering
large crowds are the favoured hunting grounds for petty criminals so be careful with your valuables. In Seville, as in any other city, beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers at airports, railway stations, around the town centre and when using public transport. Only carry what you need, leave spare cash and valuables in hotel safety deposits
drinking in the streets in Spain is illegal, and you can be arrested for doing so
