Stadium Information

About America First Stadium:

Before opening in 2008 there was much doubt if this stadium would ever get built. After a few years playing at Rice-Eccles Stadium on the campus of the University of Utah, they finally came to an agreement to build the stadium and avoid having the team relocate.

Tour Info:

A virtual tour is available on the RSL website.

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.

Pretty fun stadium to watch an RSL game. I did get hit in the head with a soccer ball. Probably got a concussion.
