Fans coming out to Saputo Stadium for a CF Montreal (previously Montreal Impact) will go through a metal detector at the gate’s entrance before entering the stadium. Fans with a bag will undergo an additional security check that includes inspecting their bag. The bag check examines the size of the bag and the content inside of it. Presuming that there are no issues with your bag or items inside of it, you will get it back and be able to head into the venue for the game.


Consider purchasing a single-compartment clear bag for your next CF Montreal soccer match! While Stade Saputo does not currently have a clear bag policy rule, more MLS venues do, which means Montreal might follow shortly. Therefore, getting a clear bag for your game is in your best interest to avoid issues if or when the rules change. Below are the bags that can enter the Montreal soccer stadium.


  • A clear single-compartment bag that is no larger than 14″ x14″ x6″
  • Medical/Diaper bags
  • A small crossbody bag
  • A small fanny pack
  • Any ADA-specific bag
