Stadium Information

About Shell Energy Stadium:

The stadium ground breaking occurred in February 2011 and hosted it's first event in May of 2012, just a little over a year later. As a result of the late ground breaking, the Dynamo had to play their first seven games of the 2012 season on the road.

Tour Info:

Tours can be conducted for groups of 10 or more, Monday-Friday. No tours will be given on game or other event days. For more information, please visit group tours.

Security Screenings:

Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium.  Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside.  Pat down searches may be required.

Bag Policy:

All bags larger than 14"x14"x6" such as backpacks, suitcases, beach bags, etc. will be prohibited from entry into the arena.  All bags are subject to inspection before entry.

Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.
