NEWS: Flag Regulations from Wembley Stadium for the Play-Off Final

Please read the information carefully ahead of the big day...

22 May 2018

Coventry City have been advised by Wembley the flag regulations for the national stadium ahead of our Play-Off Final against Exeter City on Monday, 28th May.

Please see below:

Wembley Stadium recognises that many supporters may like to display crowd flags when attending events. The following guidance has been created to assist visitors in ensuring their flags meet with Health and Safety & WNSL Ground Regulations.

Supporters may bring a flag into the ground WITHOUT permission from Wembley Stadium if:

  • The flag is smaller than 250cm in size at the widest or longest point.
  • It does not have an attached flag pole.
  • In the case of an attached flag pole, it is made from wood and plastic only and is no longer than 1
  • metre in length and 1cm in diameter.
  • There is no advertising or commercial message on the flag.
  • It does not contain any abusive or defamatory message.

**Please note that flag poles made of metal are not permitted inside the stadium, no matter what size or length the flag / pole is.

If a supporter arrives at Wembley Stadium and their flag does not come under the above points, and they have not gained permission from Wembley Stadium, the flag may be confiscated at the turnstiles and not allowed into the Stadium.

Supporters will NEED permission from Wembley Stadium if any of the following applies:

  • Flag is larger than 250cm in size at the widest or longest point.
  • The supporter wishes to have a static flag connected to seating (this is not possible for sold out
  • games).
  • Flag has a pole connected that is over 1 metre in length and 1cm in diameter.


If your flag is bigger than this then the process of applying for permission to bring it to the Final is:

  1. Click on the following link:
  1. . Select the Sky Bet League Two Play Off from the Event Name drop down list and then complete the rest of the form
  2. Within the description, you will need to include: 
    • A photo showing the whole of the flag
    • A photo showing any flag pole connected
    • The actual size of the flag
    • A valid, in date fire certificate, in English with the appropriate stamps of authority (this is preferable but not mandatory)
  3. Submit. 

If you arrive at Wembley Stadium and your flag differs in any way from the photographed or described flag, your flag may be confiscated at the turnstiles and not allowed into the Stadium.

The deadline for applications to be made is Thursday 24th May at MIDDAY. Any applications after this will be automatically refused by Wembley.

 UPDATE 23/5: The club can now confirm that the Crest Flag and Mega Flags, as purchased from the club shop, are allowed at Wembley. Examples are pictured below.
