Following the best practices recommended by the Department of Homeland Security and National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security as well as state law, additional security measures will be in place for all men’s basketball games in Allen Fieldhouse. These measures aim to provide a safer environment for all in attendance and improve the guest experience by expediting screening and entry into the fieldhouse.
All persons – game day staff, ticketed guests – are subject to screening before entering Allen Fieldhouse. Walk-through metal detectors will be the primary means of screening. For guests who are unable to utilize a walk-through metal detector, hand-held metal detectors will be used with physical pat-downs as a final alternative option. Any person who does not consent to screening will be denied entry into the fieldhouse. For more information on what is and is not allowed in Allen Fieldhouse, please review the Clear Bag policy and the Prohibited Items listed above.
Guests with tickets in hand are strongly encouraged to use the screening area and entry gate closest to their parking area or pre-game event location. In many cases, this will expedite entry. To help ensure that guests are in their seats by game time, all guests are encouraged to make their way to the entry points at least one (1) hour prior to game time. Fans who leave at half-time must be re-screened prior to re-entry.
