The safety of all supporters, players and staff is the Super League’s absolute priority and careful planning has been undertaken so that event is as safe and comfortable as possible for everyone. 

For Dacia Magic Weekend there are NO specific Covid-19 requirements. However, as part of the government’s proposed plans for Covid certification at large events,  we recommend our fans to download and register on the NHS App and to have their NHS Covid Pass (or home country equivalent) available for potential inspection on arrival. Fans without the NHS Covid Pass or NHS App WILL NOT be turned away.

However, if any of the following apply to you, you must stay at home and follow the latest guidance at gov.uk/coronavirus: 

  • If you feel unwell or display any Covid-19 symptoms, even if they are mild. 
  • If you have been told by the NHS Test and Trace service to self-isolate. 
  • If you are self-isolating as a result of Covid-19 symptoms or you are sharing a household or support bubble with somebody with symptoms.


If a concessionary ticket has been purchased, identification may be requested on entry. Holders of such tickets should ensure that they have appropriate ID with them. 


A pass out/return system will be operated on both event days allowing spectators to move freely to and from the stadium bowl – there is no limit on the number of times someone is allowed to pass out and re-enter. 

Spectators leaving the stadium bowl with the intention of returning may do so but MUST first ensure that they have a hand stamp applied upon initial exit; if there is no evidence of a hand stamp re-entry will not be permitted. Hand stamps will be applied by stadium stewards. 


Opening Times: Saturday 1pm – 7.30pm | Sunday 12pm – 5.30pm

The Fan Zone is located on Strawberry Place, offering food, beverage, and activities delivered by official partners Dacia, Northern and Batchelors Mushy Peas throughout the weekend. Metro Radio will be hosting the fan zone, keeping the party going with live music and special guest interviews from the stage at the heart of the activity.


A range of hot and cold snacks, soft drinks and alcohol will be available to purchase in all concourse areas. Once purchased within the stadium, alcohol cannot be taken outside into the city. While some kiosks do accept cash within the concourse area, we encourage fans, where possible, to bring a credit or debit card to purchase refreshments. The majority of kiosks within St James’ Park are CASH-LESS.
