Fans coming to Geha Field at Arrowhead Stadium will go through a metal detector security check at the entrance. Fans with a bag will undergo an additional security check at the gate.

Below is the type of bags the security team at the Chiefs’ venue will allow inside.


  • A one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag / clear zip-seal bag
  • A clear single-compartment bag that does not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″

Is There a Locker or Bag Check Area at Arrowhead Stadium?

If your bag can’t come to the Kansas City Chiefs stadium, you must leave it in your car. One tip is that if you partake in tailgating in the parking lots before a game, consider leaving all bags behind in your car before getting in line at the gate. The stadium security staff only allows clear bags to enter the venue unless you must bring a non-clear medical bag. To avoid running the risk of missing kickoff, leave your bags and coolers in your car after tailgating before getting in line to enter the stadium.


If you don’t have a car to leave your bag in for a KC Chiefs game, see if one of the two hotels near the venue can watch your stuff. Most of the time, hotels watch bags while fans are at a game for a small fee. Using a hotel to protect your bag is a good idea if you plan to fly out after the game back home and need somewhere to store your luggage while you are at the gate. Hotels can only watch bags if they have the space to do so, so plan to arrive two hours before kickoff to see if they can do that for you.
