4 Things You Need to Know About Additional Security Screenings at Bryant-Denny Stadium This Weekend
The University of Alabama welcomes United States President Donald Trump to Bryant-Denny for Saturday's football game against the LSU Tigers, and with the Commander-in-Chief in attendance, extra security measures will be in place. Here's what you need to know about screenings at Bryant-Denny this weekend:
1. Arrive early. Stadium gates at Bryant-Denny will open at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, allowing fans ample time to pass through security gates. The University urges everyone who plans to attend the game to be in line at the stadium no later than 1 p.m.
2. Prepare for a more thorough security screening. Fans should anticipate a security screening similar to an airport TSA checkpoint. You will be asked to remove all items from your pockets and any pinned-on buttons before passing through the security screening.
3. You will NOT be able to take empty cups in the stadium. Fans are typically allowed to bring these items into Bryant-Denny, but doing so is prohibited this weekend.
4. Any item deemed to be a security hazard will not be permitted in the stadium. The list below, posted by the University of Alabama, includes but is not limited to:
Animals other than service/guide animals
Artificial noisemakers (bells, horns, whistles, cow bells, etc.)
