How Does BMO Field Review Your Bag

Fans entering a Toronto FC match will go through a metal detector upon scanning their ticket for entry. Fans with bags will go into a different line at the entrance gates to have them inspected by the stadium security crew. The inspection reviews the size of the bag and the content inside it. Assuming there are no issues with the bag or items you are trying to bring into the venue, you can go into the stadium with it.

What Should You Do If Your Bag Is Too Big to Enter BMO Field?

If your bag can’t enter BMO Field for a soccer game or event, you can leave it in your car if you drive to the venue on game day. From there, you must get back in line at the entrance gate to get into the soccer facility for the match.


If you take public transportation to the game, you won’t have a car to leave your stuff in, so you must find an alternative option. One suggestion is to see if a nearby hotel will watch your property for you. Most hotels charge a small holding fee to protect your belongings when you are at the game. However, hotels only have limited space in their storage closet to hold onto luggage and bags, so bear that in mind.
