How Does the Exploria Stadium Staff Review Your Bag?
Fans coming to Exploria Stadium for an MLS/NWSL match will proceed through a metal detector before scanning their ticket to enter the venue. Fans with a bag will go into a slower security check line for people who also have a bag with them. Along with the metal detector check for the fan, the bag goes through a separate security check to ensure it does not exceed 12″ x 12″ x 6″, is a single-compartment bag, and does not contain prohibited items. If there are no issues with your bag, you’ll get it back. If there are issues, the security team won’t allow it to enter the stadium with you.
