FirstEnergy Stadium Doubles Down on "Fan Obsession" By Achieving One of the Fastest Ingress Experiences in the NFL

Ingress is a really important part of the game experience for fans—getting them into the stadium quickly and safely in a short amount of time,” says Brandon Covert, the VP of Information Technology at HSG. “Fans are at the forefront of our culture. We’re fan-obsessed when we look at the entire game experience. For security screening, we evaluated the Evolv Express against several metal detector technologies and really loved how fast and how safe fans got into the stadium.” Before HSG and the Cleveland Browns could deploy the Express systems at FirstEnergy Stadium, however, they had to test them to ensure they were compliant with NFL standards. “We did testing at Field last year to ensure we were ready at FirstEnergy Stadium for the 2022 NFL season,” Covert says. Since implementing Evolv Express®, the Cleveland Browns were able to achieve the following and more:  

  • Shrank security screening footprint from 100 metal detectors to 12 Express systems
  • Reduced staff required for security screening by 53% - from 150 to 70
  • Screened 18,000 guests in 45 minutes
