What’s the minimum age for a fan attending a game alone?
YCCC recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children visiting Headingley for these games and has a commitment to practice which protects them. As part of this commitment we have reviewed the minimum age of which a child can attend a game without being accompanied by another individual. This review has involved consultation with other first class counties, Leeds City Council and stakeholders across YCCC.
Our recommendation is that any child under the age of 14 should be accompanied by a responsible adult (defined in law as aged 18 or over) and decisions on entry to the stadium will be based on that age threshold.
