Kauffman Stadium Security

Enhanced ballpark security initiatives continue for games at Kauffman Stadium.

These initiatives include:

  • Increased presence of uniformed law enforcement at all games.
  • Daily facility inspection by stadium and law enforcement personnel prior to the opening of gates to the public.
  • Identification and inspection of all ballpark deliveries.
  • As a result of COVID-19, precautions will be taken to minimize contact between gameday employees and guests. Each fan may carry one clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag no larger than a 12 x 12 x 6 inches or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar). Additionally, fans may also carry a small clutch no larger than 9” x 5” that is subject to search. Exceptions may be made for medical reason or manufactured diaper bags that accompany infants and young children.
  • Unauthorized vehicle parking is prohibited within 100 feet of the ballpark exterior; parking lots are inspected daily, and unattended vehicles are removed.
  • Security awareness training for all club personnel and detailed review of all existing security personnel.
  • Use of Metal Detection Screening Equipment at all gates for all games.

To help ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment of the game, the Kansas City Royals request your assistance in abiding by these policies:

  • Guests will enjoy the baseball experience free from foul/abusive language or obscene gestures.
  • Intervention with an impaired or intoxicated guest will be handled in a prompt and safe manner.
  • The progress of the game will not be disrupted by guests' actions or unauthorized persons on the playing field.
  • Due to increased risks, smoking and vaping will not be permitted at Kauffman Stadium.
  • Guests will show their ticket when requested and, out of respect for other customers, sit only in their seat.
  • As a result of COVID-19, precautions will be taken to minimize contact between gameday employees and guests. Each fan may carry one clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag no larger than a 12 x 12 x 6 inches or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar). Additionally, fans may also carry a small clutch no larger than 9” x 5” that is subject to search. Exceptions may be made for medical reason or manufactured diaper bags that accompany infants and young children.
  • Fans who have medical needs or require the use of an infant bag with an infant may be allowed to have their bags checked at designated stations at each gate. Bags should be clear or single compartment for safer inspection.
  • Hard sided coolers, alcoholic beverages or liquid containers will not be allowed to enter the park.
  • Water and sports drinks containing electrolytes in unopened plastic bottles (1-liter or smaller) will be allowed to enter the stadium.
