Any person who does not consent to screening will be denied entry into the stadium.
Guests will be asked to remove cell phones, large key rings, cameras, wristlets/clutches and any large metal objects from their pockets and place them in the provided plastic container for inspection. Guests DO NOT need to remove jackets, belts, coins, wallets, watches, jewelry, or shoes. Guests will be able to watch their belongings throughout the screening process and will pick them up at the end of the table once they have passed through the metal screening.
If a walk-through metal detector alerts event staff to the presence of items that require further inspection, visitors will be asked to step aside and undergo secondary screening with a hand-held metal detector or physical pat-down. Event staff will check the area(s) where items were detected and ask guests to display them for inspection. Once cleared, guests will enter the stadium.
Screening Areas: Screening areas are located outside all entrances to FAU Stadium. Tickets or credentials are not required at the screening areas. Tickets or credentials will be checked by event staff prior to entry at the stadium gates.
Children: All guests, including children, are subject to screening. Infants and toddlers may be carried through the walk-through metal detectors. Children who are able to walk through will be asked to go through on their own. If the walk-through metal detector alerts event staff for items on a child, secondary screening will occur in the presence of a parent/guardian.
Accommodations for Guests with Disabilities: Guests with disabilities who are willing to utilize walk-through metal detectors are encouraged to do so; however these lanes are not accessible for wheelchairs and other assistive devices. These guests will be screened using a hand-held metal detector and/or physical pat-down. Assistive devices will be visually inspected following standard bag search procedures.
Accommodations for Guests with Medical Devices: Guests with medical devices should consult their doctor or device manufacturer if unsure of their ability to utilize a walk-through metal detector. Event staff will not give advice regarding any medical devices. Guests who are unable to use a walk-through metal detector will be screened on an individual basis. Guests should notify event staff that they have a medical device. Guests who agree to screening with a hand-held metal detector will be asked to place their palm over the area of the device so that it can be avoided during screening. After hand-held metal detector screening is complete, event staff will clear the area of the device using a physical pat-down. Once cleared, guests will enter the stadium.
