Security Screening

SECURITY SCREENING PROCEDURES – Walkthrough metal detectors (WTMD) serve as the primary method of fan screening.

Fans should keep the following in mind before they arrive at the arena entrance to expedite the process: 

  • Minimize the number of personal items they bring to the game. 
  • Remove from their clothing and belongings all items that may trigger a WTMD alarm. 
  • Place those items in bins on the divesting tables for review by security staff while fans walk thru the WTMD. 
  • If the WTMD alarm sounds, fans will be subject to a secondary screening which may slow their entry into the arena. 
  • All permitted bags must be searched thoroughly. Permitted bags should be soft-sided, not larger than 14” x 6” x 14” and able to fit completely beneath an arena seat. Bags that are fully packed take longer to search; clear bags and those packed loosely are more easily examined. 

Prohibited Items include but are not limited to: 

  • Weapons: guns, firearms, ammunition
  • Knives
  • Self-defense sprays: mace, pepper spray
  • Explosives / fireworks
  • Aerosol cans
  • Frisbees
  • Beverages
  • Poles, selfie sticks, missile-like objects that can be thrown
  • Strollers
  • Tripods
  • Beach balls
  • Illegal substances
  • Bats and clubs
  • Drones (unmanned aircraft systems) or model aircraft
  • Laser-pointing devices
  • iPads, Tablets and laptops
  • Whistles and horns
  • Large banners and flags
  • Any other items deemed inappropriate or dangerous by team or arena personnel, in their sole discretion
