GROUND REGULATIONS OF SAN SIRO STADIUM
Entry to the Ground is expressly subject to acceptance by the visitor of these Ground Regulations and the Rules and Regulations of FIFA, UEFA, F.I.G.C. (The Italian Football Association), Lega Calcio (Italian Football League) and the Authority for Public Security and Safety.
CODE OF CONDUCT
• Entry to the Ground shall constitute acceptance of these Ground Regulations and compliance therewith.
• Permission to enter and to remain within the Ground shall be subject to the possession of a valid ticket and to the compliance with these Regulations; the non-compliance therewith will result into immediate termination of the contract, with the consequent offender's banishment from the Ground and the application of an administrative fine ranging from 100 to 500 euro. In the event the offender has already been sanctioned during the same football season, including in another stadium, due to the same violation of the Ground Regulations, the fine may be increased by up to half of the maximum amount and a banning order may be imposed on the offender with respect to any sports event.
• As a rule, entry to the Ground is granted to ticket holders only through the gate indicated on the ticket purchase receipt or shown on the light panels located next to the entrance gates.
• Tickets are personal and not transferable to any third party, except for the cases and according to ways provided by the relevant rules and regulations and by the Event Organiser.
• Visitors who buy tickets in violation of the procedures for the segregation of opponent teams’ supporters may not be allowed to enter the Ground. In the event said violation is identified after entry to the Ground, the offender in question may be ejected from the Ground by the Event Organiser.
• Any person seeking access to the Ground shall exhibit a valid identity document at the pre-filtering gates in addition to the ticket, in order to allow entry control personnel to check the matching of the ticket holder (or legal assignee) and the actual user thereof.
• The ticket shall be exhibited whenever requested by stewards and, in any case, kept until the exit from the Ground.
• All persons entering the Ground may only occupy the seat allocated to them by their ticket, and therefore, upon ticket purchase, they undertake not to occupy any other seat, even if not occupied by any other person, without the express permission of the Event Organiser.
• All persons seeking entrance to the Ground acknowledge that they may be searched also by stewards and through metal detectors for the purpose of avoiding the introduction into the Ground of unlawful, prohibited and/or hazardous items, and they shall follow the instructions provided by the stewards.
• Access to Hospitality areas is regulated by the rules shown next to the entrances thereof and inside the lounges.
• The club may refuse entry to the Ground, including at upcoming events, to any person who violates these Ground Regulations.
• Choreographies can only be proposed and displayed, in compliance with law provisions and the decisions taken by the GOS (Gruppo Operativo Sicurezza – Security Operating Unit), within individual sectors of the stadium and only on the initiative of individuals or groups that historically or habitually occupy these sectors, undertaking the complete management of all related activities. The preparation of special choreographies involving several sectors of the stadium remains the exclusive responsibility of the club organising the event that will submit the proposal to the GOS for evaluation and, after approval, will inform the public also through the club’s official website.
• Any person seeking to enter and remain inside the Ground for any reason whatsoever must have their body temperature measured. Entry will be refused to anyone whose body temperature has been detected as exceeding 37.5 °C and/or presenting with COVID-19 symptoms (including, but not limited to: sore throat, cough, difficulty in breathing, loss of taste or smell, diarrhoea, widespread joint and muscle pain, or other COVID-19 related signs and symptoms).
• During the health emergency period, any person seeking to enter and remain inside the Ground for any reason whatsoever must provide all the self-certifications on health status required by the Club, aimed at containing the risk of COVID-19 infection. Any person not in possession of all the required documentation will be refused admission to or ejected from the Ground.
• During the health emergency period, any person seeking to enter and remain inside the Ground for any reason whatsoever must wear a protective face mask (i.e., surgical, FFP2 masks without valve, with valve, etc.). The Club will eject from the Ground any transgressor. The essential requirement to verify the identity of any individual seeking to enter the Ground remains unchanged; therefore, if the steward is unable to identify a person with certainty due to the partial covering of their face, he/she may ask the person to move at least 2 metres away and temporarily uncover their face for correct identification.
• During the health emergency period, data related to persons gaining access to the Ground will be kept throughout the period indicated on the personal data information notice by the Event Organiser and provided to national and local health authorities, if requested, for all legal purposes.
