Day of Game Exchanges
On the day of the event, please scan into the stadium using your original ticket. Upon entry please make the gate supervisor aware of your need for accessible seating. At that time you will be relocated to an accessible area.

Alcohol Sales

Alcohol, specifically beer and wine, will continue to be served at multiple locations throughout Kenan Stadium this season. Fans are limited to two alcoholic beverage per transaction. Alcohol sales will be available starting when gates open and end at the 75th minute of the match.

Camera Policy

Point-and-shoot cameras are permitted at Kenan Stadium, with the exception of those with interchangeable lenses larger than 6". Video cameras may only be used during pregame and halftime.

Cashless Transactions

As instituted in 2021, food and merchandise transactions will continue to be cashless. This limits the contact between guests and employees and improves the flow and speed of transactions to help reduce wait times. Accepted payment options include, but are not limited to, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Apple Pay. Our vendors have invested in their point of sales systems and transaction times are expected to be much shorter this season!
