Security Guidelines

The Detroit Tigers are committed to creating a safe, comfortable and enjoyable environment for our fans

In an effort to continue to provide enhanced safety to Tigers fans, the Tigers have implemented security measures at Comerica Park.

Here's what you need to know:

Upon entry to the ballpark, fans will have their bags searched and will need to pass through a walk through metal detector.

  • Guests will need to empty their pockets of keys, mobile phones and other items before walking through the metal detector. Guests can opt out of the walk thru metal detector screening, but they will be subject to hand held metal detector screening or alternative screening procedures.
  • It is suggested guests minimize the amount of items they bring to the ballpark.
  • There will be no access to the ballpark from the Beer Hall or the Labatt Blue Light Jungle outside doors.
  • No knives or weapons of any kind.

Fans are asked to arrive a bit earlier with security measures being implemented. If you have any questions, please contact Comerica Park Security:
