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. You should consider taking 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
  • you always take care of your passport, as obtaining a replacement is costly and time-consuming. If you lose your passport, you’ll need to get an Emergency Travel Document from the British Embassy

Getting to the stadium

The stadium is located on Avenida Heliopolis in the south of the city of Seville about 6km from the centre.


At the match

  • gates will open 2 hours before the match starts, at 6.45pm
  • England fans should enter the stadium through gate 17V
  • fans should follow police instructions. Avoid making physical contact with police officers or interfering with police operations in and around the stadium (including requests to take photos etc.)
  • anyone who is obviously drunk will not 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
