CLEVELAND — New security measures will be in place at the Browns’ preseason home opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, the team announced.
All fans will have to go through a metal detector as they enter Browns Stadium. The security procedure is a new requirement for all NFL stadiums.
“This new procedure, using handheld metal detectors, will enhance the current screening process and ensure a safe gameday environment for all fans,” a Browns statement read.
Fans will be asked to hold their keys, cell phones, and other metal items in their hands during the process. The safety measures were enforced to eliminate the need for “pat-downs” before games, the team said.
With the new security procedure in effect, fans are encouraged to get to the stadium a little early.
