An express pass linked with a credit card will allow customers to use the express lines in some concessions. Developed in collaboration with Budweiser, this card uses RFID technology and is offered to season ticket members and will be available in the stadium.
New security measures will be put in place and a coat check will be available for fans who would like to leave their backpacks and coolers after the tailgate;
Bags are authorized up to a maximum size of 51 X 33 X 23 cm (20 X 13 X 9 inches) or a volume of 30 litres. So that you won’t be burdened with your cooler (after the tailgate) or other items, a free bag check is now offered at the tailgate near the Park Avenue entrance.
In virtue of the control measures implemented in 2016, we strongly suggest that fans arrive 90 minutes before the start of the game in order to avoid lengthy lineups. All spectators are subject to a visual inspection and all bags must be opened for verification. In addition, all spectators will be checked with a metal detector.
