Entry and Carry-in Policy

As part of Yankee Stadium security procedures, all Guests are required to be screened via metal detectors before entering the Stadium. This new procedure is a result of Yankee Stadium’s continuing work with the Department of Homeland Security and is in addition to the bag-check policy already in place throughout the league.

Metal detectors are located at all Stadium gates. Once Guests have been screened and have had their bags checked, they will have their tickets scanned.

New York City FC strongly urges all Guests to budget additional time for entry into the Stadium when planning their visits.

Before proceeding through metal detectors:

Guests will be asked to remove cellphones, cameras and any large metal objects from their pockets and place them in a small plastic container, which will be visually inspected, along with their bag, by security personnel at a screening table alongside the metal detector. Only Stadium-compliant bags — 16 inches by 16 inches by 8 inches or smaller — will be admitted. Guests’ belongings will be in their sight throughout the screening process, and Guests can pick up their belongings at the end of the table once they have proceeded through the metal detector. The removal of jackets and shoes is not required.

Per Stadium requirements, all Guests, including children, must be screened. Infants and toddlers may be carried through the metal detectors; those children who are able to walk may be asked to walk through on their own. Those Guests who choose not to or who are unable to go through a walk-through metal detector have the option of being manually checked with a hand-held metal detector or a physical pat-down. 

If the device detects something:

Guests will be directed to the side, where they will be screened via a hand-held metal detector and physical pat-down, if necessary, around the area in which the detection occurred. 

Any item or property that could affect the safety of the Stadium, its occupants or its property shall not be permitted into the Stadium. New York City FC and Yankee Stadium security reserve the right to prohibit or require removal of any items at their sole and absolute discretion. Any person that could affect the safety of the Stadium, its occupants or its property shall be denied entry.

New York City FC and Major League Soccer are committed to creating a safe, comfortable and enjoyable soccer experience for all Guests in and around our stadiums.
