    Important travel information for Celtic fans heading to Rome

    By: Newsroom Staff on 21 Oct, 2019 16:41

  • THE following information has been provided to Celtic by Lazio and the City of Rome police for the forthcoming UEFA Europa League match on Thursday, November 7 in the Olympic Stadium (KO: 6.55pm local time).

    It is intended to provide Celtic supporters who are travelling to Rome with clear guidelines of what they can expect when staying in the city, travelling to the match and when they arrive at the stadium.

    There will be a prominent police presence throughout the city on the day prior to the match and on matchday, and fans are advised to always follow the advice of police at all times.

    - It is forbidden to drink from glass bottles in the street. This will result in an on-the-spot fine.

    - The Olympic Stadium is 6km from the centre of Rome. On matchday, there will be transport for Celtic fans which will leave from Villa Borghese starting at 16:00 hours. Fans will be required to present their match ticket to use the buses to the Stadium. Buses will operate in a shuttle service, and the journey time to the Stadium is around 20 minutes.

    - The Stadium will open at 17:00 and it is recommended that fans start to make their way to the Stadium from 16:00. Advice is to arrive at least 1.5 hours prior to the 18.55 kick-off.

    - Fan marches to the Stadium are not permitted.

    - Fans must take their passport or ID (if includes a picture of the holder) with them for access to the Stadium. No other form will be accepted, and photocopies will not be accepted.

    - Fans will be searched both at the Stadium as well as at the meeting point.

    - No bags of any kind are allowed within the Stadium. Fans will be allowed to take in wallet, passport, phone and keys only, and there is no drop-off for bags.

    - On arrival at the turnstiles, fans will be required to present their ticket into the turnstile reader. This will display the name and date of birth of the person who purchased the ticket, and this must match the details on the passport. If the details do not match, the access will not be granted.

    - Celtic fans will occupy sections 18, 19, 20 & 21 behind the goal. This has a centre walkway which must be kept clear at all times for emergency access.

    - Banners will be checked on arrival and must be Celtic only. No banners or flags with any political sentiment or mention of any other football team or organisation will be permitted.

    - After the match, Celtic fans will be held back within the Stadium. This could be for up to one hour. However, a decision will be taken at the time.

    - On leaving the Stadium, there will be transport provided to take fans back to the central train station in Rome called 'Termini'.
