Here, visitors will place their bags on the table for inspection, and visitors will then walk through a metal detector.


For the safety of visitors and staff at the stadium, and to provide all parties with the best possible experience.

Large bags can take up a lot of space and due to how close stadium seats are to one another, it would mean that the bag would be overflowing into the next seat, affecting the other visitor's experience.
