Be ready for the new “clear bag policy” at Sounders games

This policy now matches all events at CenturyLink Field

Nestled in your season ticket package is the 2017 scarf, a book introducing you to your Alliance membership and other Seattle Sounders gameday events, and a clear plastic bag with a large Sounders logo on it. That bag is now part of your gameday experience.

This policy was already in place for Copa America Centenario, Seahawks games and other stadium events.

You will still be subject to the metal detectors and search prior to entry to CenturyLink Field. You will no longer be able to carry just any 12” by 12” by 6” bag. It must be clear. It can be the one provided, also available for purchase at the Pro Shop, or another similar style, or even a gallon size freezer bag. You can still carry a small clutch (4.5"by 6.5"). It will be subject to search.

Medical equipment and/or items necessary for use by toddler and infants will be accepted in non-clear bags, subject to search. You should seek the Northwest VIP, Northeast VIP, Southwest VIP or club/suite entrances. This was the process for the Seahawks games. If you are in these situations, or others that may need special attention, contact your ticket representative.

Only one item in this bag is allowed in the stadium. I don’t know why you’d need a stuffed dog, but only service animals and toy animals are allowed in CenturyLink. Do not bring beer, knives, cans or bottles of soda, liquor, or any type of aerosol spray.
