Fan information for the game in Wolfsburg

The Hoffenheim fan representatives have put together all the most important information to prepare you for the Bundesliga match away to VfL Wolfsburg.

Covid rules

2G proof:

A prerequisite for entry to the stadium is proof of "2G status" for all stadium visitors aged 18 and over (fully vaccinated or recovered):

  • Vaccinated: People are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after administration of all accepted COVID-19 vaccine doses, i.e. on and after the 15th day.

A second dose of the vaccine is always required, including for Johnson & Johnson

  • Recovered: Proof of recovery must come in the form of evidence of a previous infection with the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus. The test must have been carried out by laboratory diagnostics using nucleic acid detection (e.g. PCR test). The positive result must have been registered at least 28 days ago and must be no older than 90 days.

There are designated control points at selected ticket offices from two hours before the start of the match. Those who present their proof there will receive a wristband. Admission to the stadium is only possible with a valid ticket and wristband. This also applies to children and young people up to and including 17 years of age.

Proof can be provided via the CovPass app, Corona-Warn-App, vaccination card or official certificates from the authorities.

People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons must be able to prove this with medical evidence (medical certificate) and provide a negative Covid antigen test (not a self-test), which must be no older than 24 hours.

Mask mandate:

It is compulsory to wear FFP2 standard mouth/nose protection throughout the stadium. Masks must also be worn when seated and can only be taken off when consuming food or drink. For children aged six to 14, a non-medical mask is sufficient. Younger children do not need a mask.

Hygiene rules:

  • Always keep at least 1.5 metres of distance from other people.
  • Please do not congregate in groups.
  • Avoid direct contact.
  • Cough and sneeze etiquette and hand hygiene must be observed.
