Security Information

Please be advised, enhanced security procedures will require more time to enter the stadium. Walk-through metal detectors will be used at all gates at Soldier Field.

Don't Wait, Get to the Gate.
The Game Starts with the Anthem.

Enhanced NFL security measures may lead to increased entry times to the game. In an effort to ensure the safety of all guests entering Soldier Field, every patron will enter through upright metal detectors and all carry-in items will be searched. To allow for these security measures, guests are encouraged to enter the stadium early. Our gates open two hours prior to kickoff.

New to 2016: Soldier Field will be enhancing security through the use of walk-through metal detectors.

For the comfort and safety of all guests certain items are not permitted to be brought into the stadium. Click here to view the complete list.
