You may need to go through a metal detector, visual inspection, and bag inspection when you enter. Nothing personal - searches are at random.
Kids under 2 can enter sporting events for free, but they'll have to sit on an accompanying adult's lap. If they're over 2, they'll need a ticket. Some events might have their own policies. Call guest services at 310.630.2055 for more info. Sorry, no strollers in the seating areas, but you can check them at guest services.
To keep events fun, safe, and legal, please follow The Home Depot Center's food and beverage policies as well as all laws. No underage drinking, of course. Alcohol won't be served after the 75-minute mark for a soccer match, or similar times for other events, at management's discretion. No drinks larger than 16 ounces will be served, and no more than 2 alcoholic drinks per guest at a time. If you look younger than 35, you'll be carded. If you don't follow these policies or seem intoxicated, you may be ejected.
See Prohibited Items.
A few things that aren't allowed:
Lots of food and drinks are available at 15 concession stands throughout the stadium.
The Home Depot Center offers easy access to all its facilities, including restrooms and seating areas. If you need a wheelchair escort between entry and seating, you'll be provided one at any entry or you can call guest services (310.630.2055) in advance. Sorry, you can't stay in the wheelchair for the event.
Service animals are allowed, as long as they don't pose a threat - if you need to take a service animal to an animal relief area, you'll be allowed to re-enter, so tell the guest services manager before you exit.
Basic communications devices for the hearing impaired can be checked out at guest services.
Outside food or drinks are not allowed inside, except for small snack items, or food that's necessary for religious, dietary, or medical reasons (if you get it approved by guest services). Glass bottles or cans cannot be brought in.
Lost and found things will be taken to guest services during an event, and then to the security department afterwards. So for questions about something lost at a past event, call security at 310.630.2044. You'll need to identify your item, present ID, and sign for it. Lost items that aren't claimed are given to charity after 30 days.
