TSA and NFL Join Forces: Metal Detectors at the CLink

The Seahawks announced today that all fans attending 2012 Seahawks home games will be subject to searches using handheld metal detectors in accordance with the National Football League. Fans are encouraged to arrive early at stadium gates to help facilitate this additional security measure.

"We are committed to creating a safe game day experience,” said Seahawks president Peter McLoughlin. “I want to thank Seahawks fans in advance for their cooperation to ensure fans and facilities are kept as secure as possible.”

In order to keep lines moving quickly, fans will be asked to remove all metal objects from their pockets and hold them visibly in their hands. These metal objects include, but are not limited to the following: coins, keys and cell phones.

The team provides the following tips.

  • Fans will be asked to remove all metal from their pockets and hold the items in their hands as the screening is conducted.

  • If fans have any concerns about the use of a metal detector due to medical reasons, the enhanced pat-down screening procedure can be substituted.

  • Fans are encouraged to give themselves enough time to pass through security.

  • CenturyLink Field gates open two hours before kickoff and the 30 minute period leading up to kickoff is the busiest time frame at the security screening points.
