Children aged 12 years old and below, regardless of their vaccination status, will be required to be accompanied with a fully-vaccinated adult in order to gain entry.
Each of the eight SPL clubs will undertake all ticketing operations for their respective home matches and fans are advised to check in with the respective home clubs for specific ticketing details.
