Fans Encouraged to Arrive Early Sunday; New Security Process

Posted Dec 10, 2011

As part of the NFL's ongoing focus to improve fan safety and security, Sports Authority Field at Mile High will begin transitioning from pat downs to use of handheld metal detectors at all stadium entrances and gates.


DENVER -- As part of the National Football League’s ongoing focus to improve fan safety and security, Sports Authority Field at Mile High will begin transitioning from pat downs to use of handheld metal detectors at all stadium entrances and gates. Metal detectors will be gradually phased in during this year’s remaining home games in order for fans and stadium staff to become familiar with and accustomed to the new screening process.

“The new process will improve the effectiveness of security screening while also being more fan-friendly,” said Stadium General Manager Andy Gorchov. “The thoroughness of a search with a metal detector is superior to that of a conventional pat down. The reports we have received from other stadiums that have already started implementation is that after fans and staff can become familiar with the process, it is quicker to get through, minimizes physical contact and no longer requires separate male and female search lines.”

Tips from stadium managment when coming to the stadium include:

- Arrive early, allow for an additional 30 minutes to enter the stadium.

- Familiarize yourself with stadium policies and prohibited items.

- Prior to entering the gate remove all loose items that may set off the metal detectors; keys, cell phones and other metal objects.

- Visit www.sportsauthorityfieldatmilehigh.com and click on ‘Stadium Info’ for a complete list of stadium policies.

TOUCHDOWN FOR TOTS

In addition, the Broncos have teammed up with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

New, unwrapped toys will be collected at this Sunday’s game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High against the Bears. You can also go online at www.toysfortots.org/touchdown now through December 24th to sponsor a toy for a less fortunate child in their community.

Those interested can bring new, unwrapped toys to the Denver Broncos team store today as well.
