How Does CITYPARK Staff Review Your Bag

Fans going to CITYPARK for any event will pass through a metal detector before scanning their ticket for access to the stadium. Any fan that has a bag with them will have that inspected by the security staff before they can scan their ticket to gain entry for a soccer game. The security staff at CITYPARK inspects the outside and inside of the bag, making sure the items don’t violate their prohibited item guidelines. Assuming there are no zero issues with your bag, the security team will return it so you can bring it inside the stadium.


If you want to bring a compliant bag to a St. Louis CITY SC game, consider getting a clear single-compartment bag! More professional sports venues are adopting a clear single-compartment bag policy, so getting one now is a good idea so you can bring it to other places.
