Security and fan screening:
Fans should allow for longer waits at the gate than in years past with the NFLs new wanding policy. Per the new policy, all fans and their belongings may be searched upon entry. Security screening includes hand-held metal-detecting wands and/or pat-downs. By tendering a ticket and entering the stadium, fans consent to such searches and waive any related claims that they might have against the NFL, its member clubs, their affiliates and stadium landlord, or their agents. If individuals elect not to consent to the searches, they will be denied entry into the stadium.
