One cart will feature tacos, esquites and agua frescas while the second cart will feature a couple slider options. The two markets in each patio club will also see an increase in variety this season and have added a hot carved meat area.

Getting to your seats will also be easier this year thanks to new technology for ticket scanning and security screening. This season, guests will first scan their tickets before going through security screening. New this season, there will be pedestal ticket scanning machines with the ability to scan your ticket by tapping or scanning your mobile device. If you have more than one ticket, you simply wait for the pedestal light to turn green then swipe to another ticket. Once you are done scanning your tickets, you can proceed, without removing items from your pockets or bags, through the new Evolv security screeners. The Evolv system uses advanced technology, AI and analytics to help detect weapons and other potential threats. Learn more about the process here.
Remember to download your ticket to your mobile wallet (if possible) prior to arriving at your recommended stadium entry; screenshots and PDFs of tickets will not work. Downloading to your mobile wallet makes it even easier to enter with just the tap of your phone.
