This season there will also be two kinds of lanes, designed to help fans enter the stadium more quickly.
One is an express lane reserved for fans who come to Audi Field without a bag. There is also a regular lane for fans who need to have bags screened by security before entry.
Coolers, luggage and large purses will not be allowed in. You can now rent a locker at the stadium to store bags and other items that are not permitted inside. Last season fans were angered by how long it took to get into the stadium in large part because of the bag policy.
The team released a statement along with the changes, saying, “D.C. United have made these adjustments to the bag policy after listening to feedback from the supporters in the inaugural season at Audi Field. These adjustments were made to better accommodate fans and improve on game-day procedure while maintaining our utmost commitment to supporter safety at Audi Field.”
The season opener is Sunday, March 3.
