Security staff will use handheld metal detectors at all home games beginning with Wednesday’s match vs. D.C. United.
The Sounders are encouraging all fans attending the game to arrive early to help get them through the new security measures.
“Our first priority is to ensure a safe environment for Sounders FC fans at CenturyLink Field,” said Sounder FC President Peter McLoughlin. “This is the same program that was implemented at Seahawks games last season. The process is smooth and moves quickly.”
The new security measures include:
-Fans will be asked to remove all metal from their pockets and hold the items in their hands as the screening is conducted. This includes coins, keys and cell phones.
-If fans have any concerns about the use of a metal detector due to medical reasons, the enhanced pat-down screening procedures can be substituted.
