As you arrive at the gate for your security check, you and your belongings will be screened for prohibited items.  All stadium guests are subject to a magnetometer screen.

For a quicker entry into Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium for all events, we encourage patrons to enter the stadium through the Barr or Symphony Gates. We expect a higher amount of traffic for entry at the Harrison Gate.

By presenting your ticket and entering the stadium you consent to such searches and waive any related claims that you might have against the NFL, its member clubs, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Hall of Fame Village LLC and related entities, or their agents. If you elect not to consent to the searches you will be denied entry into the stadium.

Note: Please review your tickets for admittance to the proper gate. All guests and permissible items will be subject to a physical screen and inspection upon entry.

For the health, safety and comfort of all guests, smoking and all other tobacco products to include: cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, smoking devices, vaping devices, dip tobacco and all other tobacco-related products are prohibited inside all of the areas of the stadium.
